At 500 AM AST (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Earl was located
near latitude 25.3 North, longitude 65.9 West. Earl is moving toward
the north near 6 mph (9 km/h), and a slow northward motion is

speed is expected to begin on Thursday and continue through early 
Saturday.  On the forecast track, the center of Earl is expected to 
pass to the southeast of Bermuda late Thursday and Thursday night.

Data from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate 
that maximum sustained winds remain near 80 mph (130 km/h) with 
higher gusts.  Strengthening is forecast during the next couple of 
days, and Earl is expected to become a major hurricane late 
Thursday or Thursday night.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 40 miles (65 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles
(205 km).

The minimum central pressure reported by the Hurricane Hunter
