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 
25.0 North, longitude 65.9 West.  Earl is moving toward the north 
near 7 mph (11 km/h), and this motion is expected to continue today 
with a gradual turn to the north-northeast on Thursday.  On the 
forecast track, the center of Earl is expected to pass to the 
southeast of Bermuda by Thursday evening.

Preliminary data from the reconnaissance plane indicate that the 
maximum sustained winds remain near 80 mph (130 km/h) with higher 
gusts.  Strengthening is expected over the next couple of days, and 
Earl is forecast to become a major hurricane by Thursday evening.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 40 miles (65 km) from
the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115
miles (185 km).

The minimum central pressure based on aircraft dropsonde data is 
982 mb (29.00 inches).
