At 500 AM AST (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Earl was located near latitude 32.7 North, longitude 62.4 West. Earl is moving faster toward the north-northeast near 17 mph (28 km/h). A turn
toward the northeast with an additional increase in forward speed is expected today and tonight.
Earl is then forecast to slow down considerably Saturday night and Sunday. On the forecast track, Earl will continue to move northeastward away from Bermuda today and will move to the southeast of Newfoundland Saturday and Sunday.
Data from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate
that maximum sustained winds have increased again to near 100 mph (155 km/h) with higher gusts. Some additional strengthening is forecast through tonight. Earl is expected to complete its
transition to a powerful hurricane-force extratropical low on Saturday and then gradually weaken through early Monday.
Earl’s wind field continues to grow in size. Hurricane-force winds
extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km) from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 205 miles (335 km).
The minimum central pressure based on aircraft reconnaissance data
is 963 mb (28.44 inches).
