Swells generated by Larry will continue to affect the Leeward Islands, portions of the Greater Antilles, the Bahamas, and Bermuda through the end of the week. Significant swells from Larry will
continue affecting the east coast of the United States and Atlantic Canada through the end of the week. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
Larry should become an extra-tropical cyclone early Saturday, after passing by Newfoundland, then weaken further while it passes southeast of Greenland Sunday night. Larry is expected to be absorbed by a larger extra-tropical low east of Greenland on Monday.
Elsewhere in the tropics, the CBS4 Weather team is tracking two others areas.
A tropical wave over northeastern Honduras and the western Caribbean Sea is forecast to emerge over the southern Bay of Campeche on Saturday. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low potential (30% chance) for development over the next five days. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive to support some gradual development of the system before it moves over mainland Mexico early next week.MORE NEWS: Report: Miami-Dade School District Misused $6M For Driver’s Ed Programs
A strong tropical wave is expected to emerge off of the west coast of Africa on Saturday. The National Hurricane Center is giving this disturbance a medium potential (50% chance) of development over the next five days. Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for development thereafter, and a tropical depression could form by early next week as it moves west-northwestward over the far eastern Atlantic near the Cabo Verde Islands.
