Hurricane #Humberto continues to get stronger as it moves ENE out into the northwestern Atlantic. Its track may take it very close to Bermuda late Wednesday. Any shift southward in the track could bring hurricane conditions to the island.

.EXTREMELY DANGEROUS HURRICANE DORIAN POSES A SIGNIFICANT THREAT TO FLORIDA AND THE NORTHWESTERN BAHAMAS... ...HURRICANE HUNTER PLANE FINDS DORIAN IS NOW A MAJOR HURRICANE...

2:00 PM AST Fri Aug 30
Location: 24.8°N 70.3°W
Moving: NW at 10 mph
Min pressure: 970 mb
Max sustained: 115 mph

models are starting to agree now it looks like a southeast Florida landfall and a slow painful track west. the west coast needs to stay on top of this because if it tracks like the GFS or the UKMET shows the rain will be in the 15-20 inch range and if it gets into the gulf its a second chapter. very dangerous days ahead if nothing changes.

24
From 5amNHC: “The risk of life-threatening storm surge along portions of the Florida east coast has increased, although it is too soon to determine where the highest storm surge will occur.
The risk of devastating hurricane-force winds along the Florida east coast and peninsula early next week has also increased, although it is too soon to determine where the strongest winds will occur.
Residents should have their hurricane plan in place, know if they are in a hurricane evacuation zone, and listen to advice given by local emergency officials.”

25
Now predicted to slow down to 4mph after landfall.
Jupiter ground zero but will probably shift a few more times before predicted monday afternoon landfall.
Currently cat2 but will strengthen, especially after clearing the bahamas and getting into the warmest water.

Lets hope it turns north before landfall!
