LOCATION...34.4N 78.6W
ABOUT 10 MI...15 KM NNE OF WHITEVILLE NORTH CAROLINA
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...35 MPH...55 KM/H

WATCHES AND WARNINGS
--------------------
CHANGES WITH THIS ADVISORY:

None.

SUMMARY OF WATCHES AND WARNINGS IN EFFECT:

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.


DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Ana was
located near latitude 34.4 North, longitude 78.6 West.  The
depression is moving toward the north-northeast near 5 mph (7 km/h)
and a turn toward the northeast with a gradual increase in forward
speed is expected over the next 48 hours.  On the forecast track,
the center will move over eastern North Carolina overnight and into
southeastern Virginia on Monday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 km/h) with higher gusts.
Some weakening is likely during the next day or so.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1007 mb (29.74 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL:  Ana is expected to produce rainfall accumulations of 2 to
4 inches, with isolated maximum amounts of 6 inches over eastern
portions of North Carolina and northeast South Carolina through
Monday.

SURF:  Swells generated by Ana are affecting portions of the
southeastern U.S. coast.  These swells will likely cause
life-threatening surf and rip currents.  The swells and surf
are expected to gradually diminish during the next day or two.
Please see statements issued by your local National Weather Service
forecast office.


NEXT ADVISORY

Center on this system.  Future information on this system can be
found in Public Advisories issued by the Weather Prediction Center

Surface and radar data indicate that Ana is moving farther inland.
The estimated intensity is 30 kt, and these winds are confined to
the coastal areas of North Carolina.  Continued weakening is
expected, and the system should degenerate into a post-tropical
remnant low within 24 hours.  Although a forecast track is shown
through 48 hours, it should be noted that the global models show the
system degenerating into an open trough sooner than that time.  In
any event, the remnants of Ana are likely to be absorbed by a larger
extratropical cyclone over Atlantic Canada.

The initial motion estimate is north-northeastward, or 020/4 kt.
The steering flow associated with a large mid-level trough to the
west of Ana should cause the cyclone to turn northeastward with
some acceleration over the next day or two.  The official track
forecast lies between the dynamical model consensus and the latest
ECMWF solution.

This is the last advisory issued by the National Hurricane Center
on Ana.  Future information on this system can be found in Public
Advisories issued by the Weather Prediction Center beginning at 11
PM EDT under AWIPS header TCPAT1 AND WMO header WTNT31 KWNH.
