SUMMARY OF WATCHES AND WARNINGS IN EFFECT:

There are no coastal watches and warnings in effect.


DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 200 AM AST (0600 UTC), the center of Hurricane Humberto was
located near latitude 34.7 North, longitude 63.0 West.  Humberto is
moving toward the northeast near 23 mph (37 km/h).  This general
motion is expected to continue today, followed by a north-
northeastward motion at a slower forward speed Thursday night
and Friday.  A turn toward the east-northeast is expected Friday
night and Saturday.  On the forecast track, the center of Humberto
will continue to move away from Bermuda.

Reports from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft
exiting Humberto a couple of hours ago indicated that maximum
sustained winds have increased to near 125 mph (200 km/h) with
higher gusts. Humberto is a category 3 hurricane on the
Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. The hurricane should start to
weaken today, and it is expected to become a post-tropical cyclone
by Friday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles (150 km) from
the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 220
miles (350 km).

The minimum central pressure reported by the Hurricane Hunter
aircraft is 952 mb (28.12 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF:  Large swells and dangerous surf generated by Humberto will
continue along the coast of Bermuda through today, and these could
continue to cause coastal flooding.

Swells will continue to affect the northwestern Bahamas and the
southeastern coast of the United States from east-central Florida to
North Carolina during the next couple of days.

These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current
conditions.  Please consult products from your local weather office
and the Bermuda Weather Service.

STORM SURGE:  Storm surge along the coast of Bermuda should subside
today.
