Larry is transitioning into a post-tropical cyclone as it races into the far northern Atlantic.  At 5 am, Larry was located about 285 miles north-northeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland.  Maximum sustained winds were 75 miles per hour, and Larry was racing north-northeast at 48 miles per hour.

Elsewhere, the area of disturbed weather over Central America and southern Mexico has a high chance of developing into a depression in the next day or so as it emerges into the Bay of Campeche.  A wave just off the African coast has a high chance of developing by early next week.  Regardless of development, this system will bring heavy rain and gusty winds to the Cape Verde Islands.
