Holy cow that is an eye! What a huge one! If it gets any wider we may get a brush from that eyewall

Pressure has leveled off in the low 950s as of now. Not a surprise since it has been undergoing an EWRC. Can’t rule out some deepening, but I would expect gradual weakening from here...

Temps dropping in the northern eyewall. If that wraps around we could see some strengthening. The shear keeps pressuring the eye though (more obvious on visible imaging)

Recon confirms that Humberto is still a MH. Strongest winds in SE quadrant.

Very good chance that Bermuda will feel at least Cat 2 force winds if Humberto keeps its current heading, and those Cat 2 winds extend far away from its eye on the SE quadrant which will be going over the Island.

It has been eerily calm this morning with some showers and light winds. Wind and rain starting to pick up a bit now, I think conditions will deteriorate rapidly within the next few hours.

That recent squall looks like it will be the last until the real deal arrives. Wish we had more up to date recon because the satellite presentation has changed so much. Looks to me like a wider wind field.

Hot towers keep firing on the NW side of the eyewall, getting pulled around, weakening, and then more fire up, but there's something keeping it from establishing a fully closed eyewall for very long. Probably good enough to maintain something in the 95-105kt intensity range but not much more than that.

I wonder if based on Humberto's size and direction of approach/passage, surge might be a serious problem for the southern/western coasts on Bermuda? How surge-prone are those coasts?

Not at all. Good elevation along the whole coastline. The causeway may flood, but it will be closed long before then.

Well, that's fortunate because Humberto has the classic structure of a storm that pushes a huge amount of water to the right of its track and this direction of approach seems kind of unusual since Humberto is rather far south to be moving almost due east.

Wow, the latest advisory expanded the hurricane-force wind field to 105 miles. Since it is expected to pass around 85 miles from Bermuda, we should definitely receive hurricane force winds for a little bit. Believe it or not, the sun is still shining here and winds are below 20mph.

Recon passing through the W/NW eyewall finding FL ad SFMR around 100 kt
They got the intensity from the previous pass which showed 115-120 kt FL to the SE of the eye

I'm ok with the 105 kt, but I probably would have kept 100 kt. The upgrade was probably a SFMR/flight level blend with maybe a slight emphasis towards flight level. Nothing wrong with that line of thought, but dropsonde observations suggested the highest winds (peak 120 kt at flight level on second pass) weren't mixing down to the surface quite as efficiently as usual. I probably would have favored the slightly lower SFMR a little more (peak 101 kt on last pass). Standard 0.9 reduction of 120 kt 700 mb winds is 108 kt, but a 0.85 reduction is 102 kt, which matches SFMR pretty well. Not a huge difference, and really probably me just splitting hairs.

It's really starting to blow now. I think it will pass a little closer than expected. :double:

That EWRC brought the right eyewall closer to you, although it looks weak on radar but still intense conditions on the ground.
