OUTLOOK

The center of Hurricane Ian was located near 30.3 north and 79.2
west and moving north-northeast at around 10 mph. This motion is
forecast to continue for the next couple hours before turning
towards the north this morning with an increase of forward speed
after moving northwest later today. On this track, Hurricane Ian
will make landfall along the South Carolina coast this afternoon.

Earlier, a USAF Hurricane Hunter aircraft data indicates Ian has
strengthened again to an 85 mph hurricane with potentially higher
gusts. Ian could continue intensify prior to landfall, but
significant strengthening is not expected. Once landfall occurs, Ian
will rapidly decay into a remnant low and then dissipate on Saturday
evening.

The central pressure was estimated at 986 mb.
