DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 800 PM EDT (0000 UTC), the eye of Hurricane Humberto was located
by an Air Force Hurricane Hunter aircraft near latitude 30.3 North,
longitude 75.5 West.  Humberto is moving toward the east-northeast
near 7 mph (11 km/h).  This general motion with a gradual increase
in forward speed is expected through early Thursday.  On the
forecast track, the center of Humberto is expected to approach
Bermuda Wednesday night.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 90 mph (150 km/h)
with higher gusts. Additional strengthening is expected during the
next 48 hours, and Humberto is forecast to become a major hurricane
by Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from
the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 150
miles (240 km).

The minimum central pressure estimated from Air Force Hurricane
Hunter observations is 966 mb (28.53 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND:  Tropical Storm conditions are possible over Bermuda by late
Wednesday.

RAINFALL:  Humberto may bring periods of heavy rain to Bermuda
beginning late Tuesday.

SURF:  Large swells generated by Humberto will increase along the
coast of Bermuda by Tuesday night.

Swells will 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.
