Pablo now a hurricane over the eastern North Atlantic

Pablo is now a hurricane over the eastern North Atlantic with max winds of 65 knots even though it is moving over relatively cool ocean waters.  Pablo is moving N-NE at 28 knots over even colder ocean water so it should weaken and then merge with a nearby frontal system becoming extratropical over the next 12-24 hours and eventually being absorbed into the larger low pressure system to the west over the next 48-72 hours.
