Hurricane Humberto is expected to intensify as it moves away from the southeast U.S. coast.  At 5 am Tuesday, Humberto was located near 30.6 North, 74.3 West , about 570 miles west of Bermuda.  Maximum sustained winds were 90 miles per hour, and Humberto was moving east-northeast at 8 miles per hour.  A tropical storm watch is in effect for Bermuda.  Humberto’s future track will take it near Bermuda Wednesday night or early on Thursday.

Elsewhere in the tropics, we’re watching the wave that’s now about halfway between the Cape Verde Islands and the Leeward Islands.  It has a high chance of becoming a depression during the next few days as it moves to the northwest.  And the area of showers near the Texas coast has a low chance of developing before coming ashore Tuesday night.  This feature will bring heavy rain and gusty winds to coastal Texas and portions of Louisiana and Mexico.
