In the tropics, Hurricane Larry is moving quickly to landfall in Newfoundland.  At 5 am, Larry was located near 37.7 North, 61.8, West, about 765 miles south of Cape Race, Newfoundland.  Maximum sustained winds were 85 miles per hour, and Larry was racing north-northeast at 26 miles per hour.  Larry will bring hurricane conditions, including heavy rain and life-threatening storm surge, to Newfoundland on Friday night.

Mindy is now a post-tropical system as it races away from the southeast U.S. coast.  At 5 am, Mindy was about 285 miles east of Charleston, South Carolina.  Maximum sustained winds were 35 miles per hour, and Mindy was zipping east-northeast at 29 miles per hour.

Elsewhere, we’ll be tracking two new systems.  One is a wave that is ready to emerge off the African coast but already has a high chance of becoming a depression in the next five days.  And a portion of a wave in the western Caribbean is expected to cross Central America and emerge in the Bay of Campeche by early next week.  This system has a medium chance of development but will bring heavy rain to portions of Central America and the Yucatan.
