NOAA’s National Hurricane Center issued a Public Advisory at 5 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Monday, September 16, 2019, due to the presence of Hurricane Humberto that is located well off the east coast of Florida.
Hurricane Humberto Projected Path
Hurricane Humberto is located 670 miles west of Bermuda and is moving east-northeast at 7 mph (11 km/h).
This general motion with a gradual increase in forward speed is expected through early Thursday.
On the National Hurricane Center forecast track, the center of Humberto is expected to approach Bermuda Wednesday night.
Hurricane Humberto Computer Models
The overall track forecast spread between the reliable computer models remains tight.
Spaghetti models are also now in better agreement that Humberto will not slow down as much as previously expected.
The hurricane is forecast to gradually lift out and accelerate to the northeast on days 4 and 5 when Humberto is well to the northeast of Bermuda.
The new official NHC forecast track is in agreement with the consensus models TVCN, NOAA-HCCA, and FSSE.
