In the tropics, Hurricane Larry is now a major hurricane.  At 5 am, Larry was located near 16.3 North, 44.6 West, about 1140 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.  Maximum sustained winds were 115 miles per hour, and Larry was moving west-northwest at 16 miles per hour.  Swells from Larry will create dangerous rip currents and high surf in the Lesser Antilles by Sunday, and much of the western Atlantic can expect dangerous conditions along the beaches due to this powerful hurricane.

Elsewhere, the system over the southern Yucatan is bringing rain to the region and is expected to emerge into the southwestern Gulf of Mexico.  While It has a low chance of developing in the next couple of days, conditions could be more favorable once it approaches the central Gulf of Mexico.
