DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1100 PM AST (0300 UTC), the center of Hurricane Earl was located
near latitude 31.3 North, longitude 63.7 West. Earl is moving toward
the north-northeast near 15 mph (24 km/h), and an increase in
forward speed is expected tonight, with a turn toward the northeast
tomorrow.

Data from a NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that maximum 
sustained winds are near 90 mph (150 km/h) with higher gusts.  
Re-strengthening is still possible, and Earl could become a major 
hurricane by tomorrow. Thereafter, some weakening and a
transition into a powerful extratropical cyclone is forecast 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 185 miles
(295 km).  L.F. Wade International Airport on Bermuda recently 
reported a sustained wind of 37 mph (59 km/h) and a gust to 49 mph 
(80 km/h).

The minimum central pressure reported by the NOAA plane is 964 mb 
(28.47 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
