DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the center of Hurricane Lorenzo was
located near latitude 20.3 North, longitude 43.6 West. Lorenzo is
moving toward the north-northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h), and this
general motion is forecast to continue tonight.  A turn toward the
north is expected on Saturday, followed by a turn toward the
north-northeast on Sunday.

Maximum sustained winds are now near 125 mph (205 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Lorenzo is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson
Hurricane Wind Scale.  Gradual weakening is expected during the
next few days.  However, Lorenzo is expected to remain a powerful
hurricane through the weekend.

A combination of satellite wind data and reports from a NOAA
Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that Lorenzo remains a large
hurricane.  Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles
(75 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend
outward up to 265 miles (425 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 948 mb (28.00 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF:  Swells generated by Lorenzo are affecting portions of the
northeastern coast of South America and will affect portions of the
Lesser Antilles beginning tonight through Saturday.  These swells
are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current
conditions.  Please consult products from your local weather office.
