Forecasters are now tracking the first Atlantic hurricane of the season.
We're talking about "Humberto."
The National Hurricane Center in Miami determined it is a legitimate hurricane, with sustained winds of a 75 miles per hour.
That's the threshold for a hurricane.
Early today, it was about 310 miles west-northwest of the Cape Verde Islands, off Africa's coast.
It's expected to fizzle into a tropical storm over the weekend.
It's late in the hurricane season for the formation of the first hurricane.
Humberto fell just a few hours short of setting a record for the latest first hurricane to form in the Atlantic Ocean.
