At 500 AM EDT (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Humberto was
located near latitude 29.7 North, longitude 77.3 West. Humberto is
moving toward the northeast near 5 mph (7 km/h).  A turn toward the

motion with a gradual increase in forward speed is expected tonight
through early Thursday.  On the forecast track, the center of
Humberto is forecast to approach Bermuda late Wednesday or
Wednesday night.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 85 mph (140 km/h)
with higher gusts.  Additional strengthening is forecast during
the next couple of days.

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 estimated minimum central pressure is 980 mb (28.94 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL:  Outer rain bands associated with Humberto are expected
to produce an additional 1 to 2 inches of rainfall in the northwest
Bahamas, with isolated storm total amounts of 6 inches.  Humberto
may bring periods of heavy rain to Bermuda beginning late Wednesday
or Thursday.

SURF:  Swells generated by Humberto will affect the northwestern
Bahamas and the southeastern coast of the United States from
east-central Florida to North Carolina during the next few days.
These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current
conditions.  Please consult products from your local weather
office.
