DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 400 PM CDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Olga was located near latitude 26.3 North, longitude 93.2 West. Olga is moving toward the north-northeast near 18 mph (30 km/h) and this motion is expected to continue with an increase in forward speed during the next couple of days. On the forecast track, the center of Olga should move over the northern Gulf coast late tonight or early Saturday and then move through the Mississippi and Ohio River Valleys later Saturday through Sunday.

Reports from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds are now near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts. Olga is expected to merge with a cold front and become a post-tropical low with gale-force winds during the next few hours before the center reaches the Gulf coast.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles (150 km) mainly to the northeast of the center. Satellite wind data and surface observations indicate that a large area of gale-force winds is occurring to the west of the cold front that is currently just west of Olga.

The minimum central pressure just reported by the Hurricane Hunter is 998 mb (29.47 inches).
