increase in forward speed during the next couple of days. On the 
forecast track, the center of Elsa will continue to move offshore 
the northeastern United States coast through this evening. The 
system is expected to move over Atlantic Canada by late tonight and 
Saturday.

Surface observations during the past several hours indicate 
that maximum sustained winds remain near 50 mph (85 km/h) with 
higher gusts. Gradual weakening is forecast during the next couple 
of days. Elsa is forecast to dissipate over the north Atlantic by 
Sunday afternoon.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles (220 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 999 mb (29.50 inches).
