DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1100 AM AST (1500 UTC), the center of Hurricane Earl was located 
near latitude 25.7 North, longitude 65.7 West. Earl is moving toward 
the north near 8 mph (13 km/h), and a continued northward motion is 
expected to continue through tonight.  A turn toward the 
north-northeast and then northeast with an increase in forward 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 a NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that maximum 
sustained winds are near 85 mph (135 km/h) with higher gusts.  
Strengthening is forecast during the next couple of days, and Earl 
is expected to become a major hurricane on Thursday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 40 miles (65 km) from the 
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles 
(220 km).

The minimum central pressure reported by the NOAA Hurricane Hunters 
is 978 mb (28.88 inches).

inches (25 to 50 mm) across Bermuda through Friday.

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