Hurricane Humberto

WATCHES AND WARNINGS

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

Interests in and around Bermuda should monitor the progress of Humberto.

At 500 AM EDT (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Humberto was located near latitude 29.7 North, longitude 77.3 West. Humberto is moving toward the northeast near 5 mph (7 km/h). A turn toward the east-northeast is expected later today. An east-northeastward motion with a gradual increase in forward speed is expected tonight through early Thursday. On the forecast track, the center of Humberto is forecast to approach Bermuda late Wednesday or Wednesday night.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 85 mph (140 km/h) with higher gusts. Additional strengthening is forecast during the next couple of days.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 150 miles (240 km).

1 - Tropical Wave (30%)

Showers and thunderstorms have increased this morning in association with a small low pressure system located over the central tropical Atlantic. Satellite data also indicate that the low has become better defined, and environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for the formation of a tropical depression during the next couple of days while the system moves slowly northwestward to west-northwestward.

  • Formation chance through 48 hours, low, 30 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days, high, 80 percent.

2 - Disturbed Weather (10%)

Disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the northwestern Gulf of Mexico are associated with an upper-level low and a weak surface trough. Little, if any, development of this system is expected before it moves inland along the northwestern Gulf coast tonight or Tuesday. Regardless of development, this system is expected to produce locally heavy rainfall along portions of the central and upper Texas coastal areas later this week.

  • Formation chance through 48 hours, low, 10 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days, medium, 10 percent.

Saffir-Simpson Wind Scale

Tropical Depression

Rainfall can cause serious damage and even flooding.

Tropical Storm

Heavy rains that can cause devastating floods. Strong winds that can generate tornadoes.

Hurricane Category 1 - 74-95 mph - 64-82 kt - 119–153 km/h

Very dangerous winds will produce some damage: Well-constructed frame homes could have damage to roof, shingles, vinyl siding and gutters. Large branches of trees will snap and shallowly rooted trees may be toppled. Extensive damage to power lines and poles likely will result in power outages that could last a few to several days.

Hurricane Category 2 - 96-110 mph - 83-95 kt - 154–177 km/h

Extremely dangerous winds will cause extensive damage: Well-constructed frame homes could sustain major roof and siding damage. Many shallowly rooted trees will be snapped or uprooted and block numerous roads. Near-total power loss is expected with outages that could last from several days to weeks.

Hurricane Category 3 (major) - 111-129 mph - 96-112 kt - 178–209 km/h

Devastating damage will occur: Well-built framed homes may incur major damage or removal of roof decking and gable ends. Many trees will be snapped or uprooted, blocking numerous roads. Electricity and water will be unavailable for several days to weeks after the storm passes.

Hurricane Category 4 (major) - 130-156 mph - 113-136 kt - 210–249 km/h

Catastrophic damage will occur: Well-built framed homes can sustain severe damage with loss of most of the roof structure and/or some exterior walls. Most trees will be snapped or uprooted and power poles downed. Fallen trees and power poles will isolate residential areas. Power outages will last weeks to possibly months. Most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks or months.

Hurricane Category 5 (major) - 157 mph or higher - 137 kt or higher - 250 km/h or higher

Catastrophic damage will occur: A high percentage of framed homes will be destroyed, with total roof failure and wall collapse. Fallen trees and power poles will isolate residential areas. Power outages will last for weeks to possibly months. Most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks or months.
