DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1100 AM AST (1500 UTC), the center of Hurricane Lorenzo was
located near latitude 22.5 North, longitude 44.8 West.  Lorenzo is
moving toward the north near 10 mph (17 km/h), and this general
motion is expected to continue through Sunday morning.  A turn
toward the north-northeast is forecast on Sunday, followed by a
faster motion toward the northeast beginning Monday or Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 115 mph (185 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Lorenzo is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson
Hurricane Wind Scale.  Only very gradual weakening is expected
during the next few days, and Lorenzo is forecast to remain a
strong hurricane when it turns toward northeastward towards the
Azores.

Lorenzo is a large hurricane.  Hurricane-force winds extend outward
up to 50 miles (85 km) from the center, and tropical-storm-force
winds extend outward up to 275 miles (445 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 957 mb (28.26 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF:  Swells generated by Lorenzo are affecting portions of the
northeastern coast of South America and the Lesser Antilles and are
expected to spread westward to portions of the north coasts of the
Greater Antilles, the Bahamas, Bermuda, and the east coast of the
United States during the next few days.  Swells are also expected
to build near the Azores on Sunday and Monday.  These swells are
likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
