DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Oscar
was located near latitude 39.3 North, longitude 49.6 West.  The
post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the north-northeast near
35 mph (56 km/h), and a motion toward the northeast with some
decrease in forward speed is expected during the next two to three
days.

Maximum sustained winds are near 75 mph (120 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Although gradual weakening is forecast during the next
several days, Oscar is expected to remain a powerful post-tropical
cyclone over the north-central and northeastern Atlantic Ocean into
the weekend.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km) from
the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 320
miles (520 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 976 mb (28.82 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF:  Swells generated by Oscar that are affecting Bermuda will
subside tonight.  Please consult products from your local weather
office.

Post-Tropical Cyclone Oscar Discussion Number  20
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL162018
500 PM AST Wed Oct 31 2018

Satellite imagery and scatterometer data indicate that Oscar has
become a hurricane-force extratropical low, as the central
convection has all but dissipated and frontal-band-type cloud
features have become better defined.  The scatterometer data show
hurricane-force winds about 70 n mi south of the center, and that
the overall wind field has expanded considerably since the previous
overpass.  The cyclone is expected to maintain an intensity of 60-65
kt for the next 48 h, then gradually weaken as the baroclinic energy
wanes, with dissipation occurring between 96-120 h over the far
northeastern Atlantic.

The initial motion is now 030/30 kt.  Oscar is now well embedded in
the mid-latitude westerlies, and for the next 3-4 days it should
move generally northeastward with a gradual decrease in forward
speed.

Much of the current forecast, especially the intensity and the
size, is based on input from the NOAA Ocean Prediction Center.
