The post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the northeast near 23 mph (37 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue through Sunday night. On the forecast track, the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Nestor will move across portions of the southeastern United States tonight and Sunday. The cyclone is expected to move offshore of the coast of North Carolina into the western Atlantic by late Sunday.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change in strength is forecast during the next day or so, with some slight strengthening possible Sunday night and Monday when Post-Tropical Nestor moves over the western Atlantic.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 240 miles (390 km), east of the center over Atlantic waters just offshore the Georgia coast. The NOAA buoy at Gray's Reef, Georgia, recently reported a sustained wind of 38 mph (61 km/h) and a gust to 43 mph (69 km/h)

The minimum central pressure based on nearby surface observations is estimated to be 999 mb (29.50 inches).

The post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the east-northeast near 9 mph (15 km/h), and this motion is expected to continue this morning and early afternoon, followed by a motion toward the northeast by tonight and early Sunday. On the forecast track, Post-Tropical Cyclone Nestor will move inland over the Florida Panhandle this afternoon, and will then move across portions of the southeastern United States later tonight and Sunday. The cyclone is expected to move offshore of the coast of North Carolina into the western Atlantic by late Sunday.

Doppler radar data and surface observations indicate that maximum sustained winds remain near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change in strength is anticipated before Nestor reaches the Florida coast, followed by slight weakening after the cyclone moves inland.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 185 miles (295 km) from the center, mainly to the east and southeast of the center. A private weather station at Bald Point on Apalachee Bay, Florida, recently measured a sustained wind of 37 mph (59 km/h) and a gust to 56 mph (91 km/h). Buoys just offshore the coast of west-central Florida have been reporting tropical-storm-force wind gusts to 50 mph (80 km/h) in some of the heavier squalls during the past couple of hours.

A National Ocean Service tide gauge at Apalachicola, Florida, recently measured a water level of 2.9 ft above Mean Higher High Water.

The minimum central pressure based on nearby surface observations is estimated to be 996 mb (29.41 inches).
