Lorenzo is moving toward the north-northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h), and this general motion is forecast to continue tonight. A turn toward the north is expected on Saturday, followed by a turn toward the north-northeast on Sunday.

Maximum sustained winds are now near 125 mph (205 km/h) with higher gusts. Lorenzo is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Gradual weakening is expected during the next few days. However, Lorenzo is expected to remain a powerful hurricane through the weekend.

A combination of satellite wind data and reports from a NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that Lorenzo remains a large hurricane. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 265 miles (425 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 948 mb (28.00 inches).
