In addition to Humberto forecasters are watching to other tropical waves.

If that system does form into a tropical storm, it would be named Imelda and would be the ninth named storm of the increasingly active Atlantic hurricane season.

Hurricane Humberto began picking up speed Monday night and is expected to strengthen into a "major" hurricane as it inches closer to Bermuda, the National Hurricane Center said in its 11 p.m. update.

This means tropical-storm-force winds are possible within the next 48 hours.

Humberto continued to strengthen to a Category 1 hurricane early Monday and while it will gradually move away from the Bahamas and the eastern United States, its course seems set to take it on a rare path - directly toward Bermuda.

These swells are expected to produce risky surf conditions and life-threatening rip currents. But it's still expected to bring heavy rain to coastal Texas later this week.

The last major hurricane to make a nearly-direct hit on Bermuda was 2016's Hurricane Nicole, which blasted the island with 220 km/h wind gusts and more than 170 mm of rain, even though the centre remained just offshore.

If the intensifying storm reach major hurricane status, "devastating damage will occur".

The National Weather Service issued advisories warning of high rip current risks through Monday evening at beaches from northeast Florida to North Carolina.

On Monday, Humberto continued to get better organised to the west of Bermuda and was pushing large swells that were affecting much of the southeastern U.S. coastline.

The second tropical wave was about 1,000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles on Tuesday.

People in the predicted path should not focus on the exact forecast track, the NOAA said, adding "only a slight deviation to the right could bring the centre near or over the island".

"At some point, a non-tropical storm may attempt to pull Humberto closer to the Atlantic coast of the USA later in the week, but the system may never get closer than a few hundred miles to Cape Cod, Massachusetts", AccuWeather said in a hurricane update on Monday.
