SUMMARY OF 1100 PM AST…0300 UTC…INFORMATION
———————————————–
LOCATION…35.5N 31.1W
ABOUT 285 MI…460 KM SW OF THE AZORES
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS…45 MPH…75 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT…ESE OR 120 DEGREES AT 9 MPH…15 KM/H
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE…990 MB…29.24 INCHES


DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
———————-
At 1100 PM AST (0300 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Pablo was
located near latitude 35.5 North, longitude 31.1 West. Pablo is
moving toward the east-southeast near 9 mph (15 km/h). A turn to
the east is expected overnight, followed by a faster northeastward
or north-northeastward motion late Saturday and Sunday. On
the forecast track, the small core of Pablo will pass near or over
the Azores by Saturday night.

Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher gusts.
No significant change in strength is anticipated, and Pablo is
expected to become an extratropical cyclone in a day or two.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 990 mb (29.24 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
———————-
Since Pablo is embedded within a large extratropical low, which
itself is forecast to bring strong winds to the Azores, the
Portuguese Institute for the Sea and Atmosphere (IPMA) has included
the effects of this small cyclone in their products. Those products
already account for the strong winds and high waves.
