In the tropics, Hurricane Larry continues to move in the general direction of Bermuda.  At midday on Monday, Larry was located near 23.8 North, 55.1 West, about 830 miles southeast of Bermuda.  Maximum sustained winds were 120 miles per hour, and Larry was moving northwest at 10 miles per hour.  Swells from Larry will create dangerous rip currents and rough surf along much of the Atlantic seaboard, and Bermuda is expected to feel at least some effects from the hurricane.

Elsewhere, the area of disturbed weather in the south-central Gulf of Mexico has a low chance of development during the next few days.  But it will bring heavy rain to portions of the northern Gulf coast and moves across northern and central Florida in a few days.  Once the system is in the Atlantic and near the Gulfstream, conditions could be more favorable for development.
