In the tropics, Hurricane Larry continues to move rapidly in the eastern Atlantic.  At 5 am Friday, Larry was located near 14.6 North, 38.9 West, about 1530 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.  Maximum sustained winds were 90 miles per hour, and Larry was moving west-northwest at 20 miles per hour.  Larry is expected to intensify into a major hurricane in the next few days.

The low now over Central America is bringing heavy rain and gusty winds to portions of the region.  This system is likely to emerge into the Bay of Campeche in a few days.  But it has a low chance of becoming a depression in the next five days, because unfavorable upper-level winds are expected to inhibit development.  Finally, a new wave in the eastern Atlantic has a low chance of developing during the next five days.
