DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 800 PM AST (0000 UTC), the center of Hurricane Lorenzo was
located near latitude 23.8 North, longitude 45.0 West.  Lorenzo is
moving toward the north near 10 mph (17 km/h), and this motion is
expected to continue through tonight.  A turn toward the
north-northeast is forecast on Sunday, followed by a faster motion
toward the northeast beginning Monday or Tuesday.  On the forecast
track, the center of Lorenzo will be approaching the Azores on
Tuesday.

Satellite data indicate that the maximum sustained winds have
increased to near 145 mph (230 km/h) with higher gusts.  Lorenzo is
a category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.
Fluctuations in intensity are possible tonight and early Sunday.
Lorenzo is expected to gradually weaken Sunday night through
Tuesday, but it will remain a large and potent hurricane while it
approaches the Azores.

Lorenzo is a large hurricane.  Hurricane-force winds extend outward
up to 50 miles (85 km) from the center, and tropical-storm-force
winds extend outward up to 275 miles (445 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 942 mb (27.82 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF:  Swells generated by Lorenzo are affecting portions of the
northeastern coast of South America and the Lesser Antilles and are
expected to spread westward to portions of the north coasts of the
Greater Antilles, the Bahamas, Bermuda, and the east coast of the
United States during the next few days.  Swells are also expected
to build near the Azores on Sunday and Monday.  These swells are
likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
