Tropical Update
Hurricane Larry is moving toward Newfoundland. Larry is centered about 410 miles NNE of Bermuda and moving NNE at 26 mph. On the forecast track, the center of Larry will pass well southeast of Nova Scotia today and move over southeastern Newfoundland tonight. Maximum sustained winds are near 85 mph with higher gusts. Gradual weakening is forecast during the next day or so, but Larry is expected to remain a hurricane until it passes Newfoundland. Larry should become an extratropical cyclone on Saturday and is now forecast to be absorbed by a larger extratropical low near Greenland by the end of the weekend.

The northern portion of a tropical wave is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms over Honduras, the western Caribbean Sea and portions of the Yucatan peninsula. This system is forecast to move into the Bay of Campeche and merge with a pre-existing surface trough located over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico by this weekend. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive to support gradual development, and a tropical depression is likely to form Sunday or Monday before the system moves onshore along the western Gulf of Mexico coast.
* Formation chance through 48 hours: Medium (40%)
* Formation chance through 5 days: High (70%)


A strong tropical wave is expected to emerge off the west coast of Africa later today or tonight. Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for development thereafter, and a tropical depression is likely to form by early next week as the system moves WNW over the far eastern Atlantic near the Cabo Verde Islands.
* Formation chance through 48 hours: Medium (50%)
* Formation chance through 5 days: High (70%)
