ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Hurricane Humberto is a major hurricane and, so far, it’s mostly been one for the fishes — but people on Bermuda did feel its impact.

Hurricane-force winds and heavy rain gave Bermuda a glancing blow as the center of the storm passed just to the north on Wednesday.

As of Thursday morning Hurricane Humberto has sustained winds of 125 mph and remains a major category three hurricane. The storm is picking up forward speed as it moves away from Bermuda and was moving to the northeast at 22 mph. 

This general motion is expected to continue today, followed by a north-northeastward motion at a slower forward speed Thursday night and Friday.  A turn toward the east-northeast is expected Friday night and Saturday.

The hurricane should start to weaken today, and it is expected to become a post-tropical cyclone by Friday. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 405 miles.

Tropical Storm Jerry continues to spin in the Atlantic. The storm has maximum sustained winds of 70 mph and is moving west, northwest at 16 mph.
