As of the 11 P.M. Update Humberto has now become the third hurricane this season in the Atlantic Basin. The cyclone joins Barry and Dorian as the other two hurricanes this 2019 season. Winds are now sustained at 75 mph and is moving slowly NE at 3 mph. This NE motion is expected to shift more to the East and accelerate away from the US mainland and toward the island of Bermuda
As of the 5 P.M. Update the indications are that Humberto continues to strengthen with sustained winds near 70 mph along with gusts over 85. Rip currents will threaten the southeast coast of the United States as the cyclone continues to churn in the warm waters north of the Bahamas.
Humberto is moving to the North at 6 mph but is forecast to turn NE early Monday and migrate away from the coast. Look for him to become Hurricane shortly as the conditions favor continued development.
The center of this storm is about 170 miles ENE of Cape Canaveral Florida.
The path is forecast to take Humberto over Bermuda later in the week as a Cat 2.
