DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 200 AM AST (0600 UTC), the center of Hurricane Earl was located
by an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft near latitude 
27.7 North, longitude 65.5 West.  Earl is moving toward the north 
near 9 mph (15 km/h).  A turn toward the north-northeast is 
expected later today followed by a turn to the northeast tonight 
with a gradual increase in forward speed.

Data from the reconnaissance aircraft indicate that maximum 
sustained winds remain near 100 mph (155 km/h) with higher gusts.  
Strengthening is forecast during the next couple of days, and Earl 
is expected to become a major hurricane later today or tonight.

Earl's wind field is growing in size.  Hurricane-force winds extend 
outward up to 60 miles (95 km) from the center and 
tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 160 miles (260 km).

The minimum central pressure reported by the Air Force Reserve 
Hurricane Hunter aircraft is 970 mb (28.65 inches).

WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected on Bermuda beginning
this afternoon or evening.  Hurricane conditions are possible on 
Bermuda this evening or tonight.

RAINFALL:  Earl is expected to produce rainfall amounts of 1 to 2
inches (25 to 50 mm) across Bermuda through Friday.

SURF:  Swells generated by Earl are beginning to reach Bermuda and 
are expected to reach the U.S. east coast later today and tonight.  
These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip 
current conditions through the weekend.  Please consult products 
from your local weather office.
