DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK

At 500 AM AST (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Earl was located
near latitude 28.2 North, longitude 65.4 West.  Earl is moving 
toward the north near 9 mph (15 km/h).  A turn toward the

forecast track, the center of Earl is expected to pass to the 
southeast of Bermuda this evening and tonight.

Data from Air Force Reserve and NOAA Hurricane Hunter missions 
indicate that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 105 mph 
(165 km/h) with higher gusts.  Additional strengthening is forecast 
during the next couple of days, and Earl is expected to become a 
major hurricane later today.  The hurricane is forecast to become a 
powerful post-tropical low on Saturday.

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 from Air Force Reserve reconnaissance 
data is 969 mb (28.62 inches).
