At 500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Zeta

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts.
Some strengthening is forecast tonight, but the cyclone should 
become absorbed by a frontal system on Friday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 310 miles (500 km)
