Humberto is moving toward the east-northeast near 20 mph (31 km/h). This general motion with an additional increase in forward speed is expected through early Thursday, followed by a northeastward to north-northeastward motion through Friday. On the forecast track, the core of Humberto is expected to pass just to the northwest and north of Bermuda later tonight.

Maximum sustained winds are near 120 mph (195 km/h) with higher gusts. Humberto is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Some fluctuations in intensity are likely during the next day or so, but Humberto should remain a powerful hurricane through early Thursday while it passes close to Bermuda. A steady weakening trend should begin later on Thursday.

Humberto is a expected to remain a large hurricane. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 195 miles (315 km). An amateur radio operator at Ports Island near the southern end of Bermuda reported a sustained wind of 75 mph (121 km/h) and a gust to 104 mph (167 km/h) during the past hour. An amateur radio operator in Somerset Village recently reported a sustained wind of 70 mph (113 km/h) and a gust to 89 mph (143 km/h).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 952 mb (28.12 inches).

WIND: [TOP] Hurricane-force wind gusts are occurring on Bermuda and sustained hurricane force winds will occur tonight into early Thursday morning. Tropical-storm-force winds will persist on Bermuda into late Thursday morning.

RAINFALL: [TOP] Humberto may bring periods of heavy rain to Bermuda through Thursday, with rainfall accumulations of 2 to 4 inches with maximum amounts of 6 inches expected. Rainfall amounts up to 3 inches have already been reported across portions of the island.

SURF: [TOP] Large swells generated by Humberto will increase along the coast of Bermuda today and tonight. Dangerous breaking waves, especially along south-facing beaches, will be possible Wednesday night into Thursday, and could cause coastal flooding. Wave heights exceeding 30 feet have already been reported by an offshore NOAA buoy.

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: [TOP] Storm surge and breaking waves could raise water levels by 1 to 3 feet above normal tide levels along the immediate southern coast of Bermuda.
