DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
At 500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Humberto was
located by reconnaissance aircraft and NOAA Doppler radars near
latitude 29.3 North, longitude 78.0 West. Humberto is moving toward
the north near 6 mph (9 km/h), and this motion is expected to
continue through tonight. A sharp turn to the northeast is forecast
to occur Monday morning or afternoon, followed by a motion toward
the northeast and east-northeast on Tuesday and Wednesday. On the
forecast track, the center of Humberto will continue to move away
from the Bahamas and remain well offshore of the southeastern coast
of the United States through Wednesday.
Data from an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft indicate that
maximum sustained winds have increased to near 70 mph (110 km/h)
with higher gusts. Further strengthening is expected during the next
few days, and Humberto is expected to become a hurricane later
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 150 miles (240 km)
from the center.
The minimum central pressure based on aircraft data is estimated
to be 989 mb (29.21 inches).
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

Humberto may bring periods of heavy rain to Bermuda beginning late
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
