Hurricane Larry continues to spin about over the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean; the National Hurricane Center (NHC) expects it to become a major hurricane by tomorrow, and is forecasting it to have more than 135 mph sustained winds in the next 5 days, which would make it a Category 4 hurricane on the Saffir Simpson wind scale.
It is still too early to say if Larry will have any direct impacts to Bermuda or the U.S. East Coast. It is unlikely there will be any direct impacts in less than five days.
For now, Larry is located about 970 miles west of the southernmost Cabo Verde Islands and about 1,530 miles east of the Leeward Islands.
Larry has maximum sustained winds of 90 mph now, making it a Category 1 hurricane. It is moving to the west-northwest at 20 mph. Larry’s minimum central pressure is 982 mb or 29.00″.
There are currently no watches/warnings in effect anywhere yet for Larry.
