    Humberto, located a little more than a hundred miles west of
    Bermuda, and on Tropical Storm Jerry, located several hundred miles
    east of the Leeward Islands.

    A tropical wave located several hundred miles west of the Cabo
    Verde Islands is producing disorganized cloudiness and showers.
    Some development of this system is possible while the system
    approaches the Windward Islands this weekend or when it moves
    across the southeastern Caribbean Sea early next week.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.

    A large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms near and to
    the south-southeast of the Dominican Republic is associated with a
    tropical wave. While upper-level winds are not forecast to be
    conducive for significant development, locally heavy rainfall is
    possible over portions of the Dominican Republic and Haiti during
    the next couple of days. The disturbance is forecast to move slowly
    northwestward through the weekend.

    DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
    ----------------------
    At 200 PM AST (1800 UTC), the center of Hurricane Humberto was
    located by satellite and the Bermuda weather radar near latitude
    32.4 North, longitude 67.2 West.  Humberto is now moving toward the
    east-northeast near 16 mph (26 km/h).  This general motion with an
    additional increase in forward speed is expected through early
    Thursday, followed by a northeastward to north-northeastward motion
    through Friday.  On the forecast track, the core of Humberto is
    expected to pass just to the northwest and north of Bermuda later
    tonight.
    
    Maximum sustained winds are near 120 mph (195 km/h) with higher
    gusts. Humberto is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson
    Hurricane Wind Scale.  Some fluctuations in intensity are likely
    during the next day or so, but Humberto should remain a powerful
    hurricane through early Thursday while it passes close to Bermuda.
    A steady weakening trend should begin later on Thursday.
    
    Humberto is a large hurricane, with hurricane-force winds extending
    outward up to 105 miles (165 km) from the center and
    tropical-storm-force winds extending outward up to 195 miles (315
    km) based on satellite-derived surface wind data. A wind gust to
    51 mph (82 km/h) recently occurred at the Bermuda airport.
    
    The estimated minimum central pressure is 952 mb (28.12 inches).
    
    
    HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
    ----------------------
    WIND:  Hurricane conditions are expected to reach Bermuda by this
    evening and continue into early Thursday morning.
    Tropical-storm-force winds will occur on Bermuda through Thursday
    morning. Outside preparations are becoming difficult or dangerous
    and should be completed soon.
    
    RAINFALL:  Humberto may bring periods of heavy rain to Bermuda
    through Thursday, with rainfall accumulations of 2 to 4 inches with
    maximum amounts of 6 inches expected.
    
    SURF:  Large swells generated by Humberto will increase along the
    coast of Bermuda today.  Dangerous breaking waves, especially
    along south-facing beaches, will be possible Wednesday night into
    Thursday, and could cause coastal flooding.  Wave heights exceeding
    30 feet have already been reported by an offshore NOAA buoy.
    
    Swells will continue to affect the northwestern Bahamas and the
    southeastern coast of the United States from east-central Florida to
    North Carolina 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.
    
    STORM SURGE:  Storm surge and breaking waves could raise water
    levels by 1 to 3 feet above normal tide levels along the immediate
    southern coast of Bermuda.

    and the Southwest North Atlantic including the Bahamas

    ...GULF OF MEXICO...

    The remnant low pressure that was Tropical Storm Imelda is
    inland over coastal Texas near 31N95W. Showers and thunderstorms
    will persist into the morning off the north Texas coast, but
    winds and seas continue to diminish over the northwest Gulf. The
    low pressure will continue to weaken as it moves farther inland
    through Fri. Meanwhile, high pressure will build over the north
    central Gulf in the wake of Imelda tonight, supporting gentle to
    moderate winds through mid week, except for moderate to fresh
    winds off the west coast of Yucatan at night. The high pressure
    will dissipate later in the week in advance of a weak cold front
    that is forecast to move across the eastern Gulf of Mexico then
    stall and dissipate over the southeast Gulf Fri into Sat. Fresh
    winds and building seas will follow the front over the eastern

    Monthly Tropical Weather Summary
    NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
    800 AM EDT Sun Sep 1 2019

    For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

    Tropical cyclone activity during August was near average for the
    Atlantic basin, with three named storms forming during the month and
    one of them, Dorian, becoming a major hurricane. Based on a 30-year
    climatology (1981-2010), three named storms typically form in the
    basin in August, with one or two of them becoming hurricanes, and
    one of them becoming a major hurricane.

    In terms of Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE), which measures the
    combined strength and duration of tropical storms and hurricanes,
    activity in the Atlantic basin so far in 2019 is near normal.

    Reports on individual cyclones, when completed, are available at
    the National Hurricane Center website at
    www.hurricanes.gov/data/tcr/index.php?season=2019&basin=atl
