At 1100 p.m. AST (0300 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Humberto was located near latitude 40.0 north, longitude 58.0 west. The post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the north-northeast near 20 mph (31 km/h). A slower north-northeastward motion is expected tonight and Friday. A turn toward the east-northeast is expected to commence by Friday night.

Maximum sustained winds are near 100 mph (155 km/h) with higher gusts. Gradual weakening is expected during the next couple of days.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 380 miles (610 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 965 mb (28.50 inches).


Watches and Warnings

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.


Land Hazards

Surf: large swells and dangerous surf generated by Humberto will continue along the coast of Bermuda during the next day or two, and these could continue to cause coastal flooding.

Swells will continue to affect the northwestern Bahamas and much of the coast of the United States from east-central Florida to the mid-Atlantic states during the next couple of days.

These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office and the Bermuda weather service.
