DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1100 PM AST (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Melissa was
located near latitude 40.2 North, longitude 56.7 West. Melissa is
moving toward the east-northeast near 18 mph (30 km/h) and this
motion is expected to continue tonight.  A further increase in
forward speed and a turn toward the east are expected on Monday,
with that motion continuing into Wednesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts.
Additional weakening is expected tonight, and Melissa is forecast to
become a post-tropical remnant low later tonight or early Monday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1003 mb (29.62 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
COASTAL FLOODING:  Minor coastal flooding will occur along some
portions of the U.S. Mid-Atlantic and southeastern coast through
early Monday around times of high tide.

SURF:  Swells generated by Melissa that are affecting much of
U.S. east coast, portions of the Bahamas, Bermuda, and Atlantic
Canada will gradually subside on Monday.  These swells are likely
to produce life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please
consult products from your local weather office.
