DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
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).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
Key messages for Earl can be found in the Tropical Cyclone
Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT1 and WMO header WTNT41 KNHC
and on the web at hurricanes.gov/text/MIATCDAT1.shtml

WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected on Bermuda for the
next few hours.  Gusty winds are expected across the Avalon 
Peninsula of Newfoundland over the weekend after Earl becomes a 
post-tropical low.

RAINFALL:  Earl is expected to produce rainfall amounts of 1 to 3
inches (25 to 75 mm) across Bermuda through today.

SURF:  Swells generated by Earl are affecting Bermuda and portions
of the U.S. East Coast and are expected to reach Nova Scotia and
Newfoundland tonight and on Saturday.  These swells are likely to
cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions through the
weekend.  Please consult products from your local weather office.
