In the tropics, Larry remains a large category 3 hurricane.  At 5 am, Hurricane Larry was located near 26.5 North, 57.3 West, about 605 miles southeast of Bermuda.   Maximum sustained winds were 115 miles per hour, and Larry was moving northwest at 10 miles per hour.  A tropical storm watch is in effect for Bermuda.  Larry is expected to pass near Bermuda on Thursday and bring rough surf and dangerous rip currents to much of the U.S. Atlantic coast late this week and into next week.

We’re keeping an eye on the area of disturbed weather now in the central Gulf of Mexico.  It has a medium chance of developing into a depression as it brings heavy rain and gusty winds to the northern Gulf coast, as well as northern and central Florida, on Thursday.  This system is expected to cross Florida and emerge into the Atlantic on Friday.
