The low is moving toward the west-northwest near 10 mph and this general motion with a gradual decrease in forward speed is expected until dissipation.

Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph (45 km/hr) with higher gusts.  Estimated minimum central pressure is 1006 mb (29.71 inches). The low is forecast to slowly weaken over the next couple of days.
