DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the center of Hurricane Humberto was
located near latitude 38.5 North, longitude 58.7 West.  Humberto is
moving toward the northeast near 24 mph (39 km/h).  A slower north-
northeastward motion is expected tonight and Friday.  A turn
toward the east-northeast is expected to commence by Friday night.

Maximum sustained winds are near 105 mph (165 km/h) with higher
gusts.  The hurricane is expected to slowly weaken and become a
post-tropical cyclone tonight.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km) from
the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 380
miles (610 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 960 mb (28.35 inches).


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

Swells will continue to affect the northwestern Bahamas and much of
the coast of the United States from east-central Florida to the
Mid-Atlantic States 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.
