At 500 AM AST (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Lorenzo was
located near latitude 33.4 North, longitude 39.7 West.  Lorenzo is

speed during the next few days.  On the forecast track, the center
of Lorenzo is expected to pass near the western Azores early on
Wednesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 100 mph (155 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Only slow weakening is expected during the next 48 hours.

Lorenzo is a very large tropical cyclone.  Hurricane-force winds
extend outward up to 90 miles (150 km) from the center and
tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 345 miles (555 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 962 mb (28.41 inches).

Azores.  Please consult products from your local weather office.
