HURRICANE HUMBERTO

Posted: Updated:

Hurricane Humberto is located about 360 miles WNW of the Cape Verde Islands. Movement is toward the north at 12 mph. The maximum sustained wind is 85 mph, making Humberto a Category One hurricane.

Humberto may strenghten a bit more tonight or early Thursday, but is expected to weaken by this weekend as it makes a sharp westward turn in response to high pressure aloft building to the north. Longer-range models move Humberto west or northwest for several days and then forecast a more northward motion after that. Right now, Humberto does not look like a threat to the United States.
