Larry is a feisty hurricane but no threat...except to Bermuda because he stays well out in the Atlantic. Later this week, the East Coast will see some large waves/rough surf from the hurricane that remains well out to sea.
Even though Larry is forecast to remain well east of the United States, the powerful hurricane is expected to pass close to Bermuda and could make landfall in Atlantic Canada AccuWeather meteorologists warn. But, impacts from Larry will be far-reaching even though the storm may stay hundreds of miles away from the Atlantic beaches from Florida to Maine.
Larry appeared as a very healthy and dangerous Category 3 hurricane on Sunday touting a large eye and maximum sustained winds of 125 mph. The hurricane was moving northwestward at 13 mph. As of the evening hours, Larry was located 1,195 miles from Bermuda.
"While some fluctuation in strength is likely this week, Larry is forecast to gain strength and reach Category 4 hurricane status with maximum sustained winds of 130 to 156 mph, while over warm waters and minimal wind shear," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Tyler Roys said.
A hurricane with his name (Larry) and he's nowhere to be found?
Larry the hurricane has weakened a bit and will pass far enough east of Bermuda that they should only see tropical storm winds.
High seas/rough surf will push all the way to the East Coast later this week but Larry will stay far out to sea.
