At 300 AM GMT (0300 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Epsilon was located near latitude 48.6 North, longitude 38.8 West. The post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the northeast near 46 mph (74 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue through Monday night.

Maximum sustained winds are near 70 mph (110 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change in strength is forecast during the next day or so before the post-tropical cyclone is absorbed by a large extratropical low pressure system on Monday night or early Tuesday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 450 miles (720 km) from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 968 mb (28.59 inches).
