Discussion

At 500 a.m. EDT (0900 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Erin was located near latitude 36.1 north, longitude 71.6 west. The post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the north-northeast near 15 mph (24 km/h). A turn toward the northeast and a faster forward motion are expected later today, with this motion continuing through Friday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts. The post-tropical cyclone is expected to strengthen a little on Friday before it is absorbed by a larger extratropical low over eastern Canada Friday night.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1005 mb (29.68 inches).
