LARRY INTENSIFIES INTO A CATEGORY 2 HURRICANE

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

At 5:00 pm AST, the center of Hurricane Larry was located near latitude 15.0 North, longitude 42.0 West. Larry is moving toward the west-northwest near 16 mph (26 km/h), and this motion is expected to continue over the weekend. A turn to the northwest is forecast by early next week.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 100 mph (155 km/h) with higher gusts. Additional strengthening is forecast during the next few days, and Larry is forecast to become a major hurricane this weekend.

Swells generated by Larry are expected to reach the Lesser Antilles on Sunday. Significant swells will likely reach Bermuda and the eastern United States coastline after Labor Day. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office.
