DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 AM AST (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Lorenzo was
located near latitude 25.1 North, longitude 44.6 West.  Lorenzo is
moving toward the north near 10 mph (17 km/h).  A turn to the
north-northeast is expected later today, followed by a faster
northeast motion on Tuesday and Wednesday.  On the forecast track,
Lorenzo is expected to move near or just west of the Azores late
Tuesday and Wednesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 155 mph (250 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Lorenzo is a category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson
Hurricane Wind Scale.  Although gradual weakening is forecast,
Lorenzo is expected to be a large and powerful hurricane as it
approaches the Azores.

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 925 mb (27.32 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL:  Lorenzo is expected to produce total rain accumulations
of 3 to 6 inches over much of the western Azores and 1 to 2 inches
over the central Azores Tuesday and Wednesday.  This rainfall could
cause life-threatening flash flooding in the western Azores.

SURF:  Swells generated by Lorenzo are spreading across much of the
North Atlantic basin.  These swells are likely to cause
life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please consult
products from your local weather office.
