DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 300 PM GMT (1500 UTC), the center of Hurricane Martin was located
near latitude 45.6 North, longitude 37.9 West. Martin is moving
toward the northeast near 48 mph (78 km/h). A turn toward the north 
at a slightly slower forward speed is expected this evening. 
Martin's forward motion is forecast to slow down substantially on 
Friday. A general east to east-southeastward motion is then 
forecast by Friday night, which will likely continue through the 
weekend.

Maximum sustained winds are near 85 mph (140 km/h) with higher
gusts. Martin is forecast to become a very powerful post-tropical 
cyclone within the next few hours. Martin's peak sustained winds 
will likely begin to decrease on Friday, but it will continue to 
produce strong winds over a very large area well into the weekend.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km) from
the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 520
miles (835 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 960 mb (28.35 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF: Swells generated by Martin when it become a post-tropical
cyclone will likely spread across a large portion of the
high-latitude North Atlantic basin, affecting portions of Atlantic
Canada, the Azores, and the Atlantic coast of Europe by the weekend.
These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip
current conditions. Please consult products form your local weather
office.
