    BULLETIN
    Post-Tropical Cyclone Eta Advisory Number 52
    NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL292020
    400 AM EST Fri Nov 13 2020

    ...ETA BECOMES AN EXTRATROPICAL LOW...


    SUMMARY OF 400 AM EST...0900 UTC...INFORMATION
    ----------------------------------------------
    LOCATION...33.3N 76.8W
    ABOUT 85 MI...135 KM SE OF WILMINGTON NORTH CAROLINA
    MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...45 MPH...75 KM/H
    PRESENT MOVEMENT...ENE OR 60 DEGREES AT 21 MPH...33 KM/H
    MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...1004 MB...29.65 INCHES


    WATCHES AND WARNINGS
    --------------------
    There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.


    DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
    ----------------------
    At 400 AM EST (0900 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Eta
    was located near latitude 33.3 North, longitude 76.8 West. The
    post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the east-northeast near 21
    mph (33 km/h) and this motion is expected to continue with an
    increase in forward speed through Saturday. On the forecast track,
    Eta is expected to gradually pull away from the southeast U.S.
    coast today.

    Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher gusts.
    Eta could intensify a little as an non-tropical cyclone during the
    next day or so before it becomes absorbed by a larger non-tropical
    cyclone on Saturday or Saturday night.

    Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km)
    from the center.

    The estimated minimum central pressure is 1004 mb (29.65 inches).


    HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
    ----------------------
    SURF: Swells generated by Eta will affect portions of the
    southeastern United States coast today. These swells
    are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current
    conditions. Please consult products from your local
    weather office.

    Post-Tropical Cyclone Eta Discussion Number 52
    NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL292020
    400 AM EST Fri Nov 13 2020

    While the cyclone is still generating a cluster of strong
    convection to the northeast of the center, satellite imagery,
    surface observations and scatterometer data indicate that Eta has
    merged with a baroclinic zone and become an extratropical cyclone
    off the southeastern coast of the United States. The scatterometer
    data showed vectors of 40-50 kt along a front or convergence zone
    northeast of the center, but these vectors were in the strong
    convective region and their reliability is uncertain. This, the
    initial intensity is held at a possibly conservative 40 kt. Eta is
    forecast to strengthen as a baroclinic low until the system is
    absorbed by another low pressure area in about 48 h.

    The initial motion is 060/18. The post-tropical cyclone cyclone
    should continue this general motion with an increase in forward
    speed until it is absorbed.

    This is the last advisory issued by the National Hurricane Center
    on Eta. Additional information on this system can be found in
    High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service, under
    AWIPS header NFDHSFAT1, WMO header FZNT01 KWBC, and online at
