TROPICS: Hurricane Larry is moving to the NW in the central Atlantic Ocean about 500 miles southeast of Bermuda. Larry is a cat 2 hurricane and is forecast to remain a hurricane as it passes just east of Bermuda Thursday. Larry will weaken a little Friday as it turns to the northwest and will get close to Newfoundland Saturday as an extra-tropical system. It is no threat to our area but keep our rip current a little higher than normal. A surface trough combined with an upper level disturbance in the southern Gulf of Mexico is producing widespread showers and storms. This area is forecast to move closer to the northeast Gulf coast by tonight. Upper level winds should prevent any significant development.
