UPDATE 9/10/21

Larry is now close enough to Newfoundland that impacts are being seen. It will weaken quickly after landfall. Then it will heads toward Greenland & combine with another low pressure area. The combination will produce blizzard conditions.

FOX 4 METEOROLOGIST CINDY PRESZLER

UPDATE 9/10/21

Hurricane Larry is racing toward SE Newfoundland with winds of 80mph. After making landfall tonight, it is forecast to become extratropical but still have big impacts on Greenland. Blizzard conditions & heavy snowfall of 2-5 feet possible. It is being dubbed a "snowicane".

FOX 4 METEOROLOGIST CINDY PRESZLER

UPDATE 9/10/21 5 PM

Hurricane Larry continues to be a large storm in surface area with maximum sustained wind of 80 mph. Hurricane force wind now extend 105 miles from its center with tropical storm force wind 255 miles away from its center. It has accelerated since the last advisory and is moving quickly to the NNE at 35 mph. Larry will make landfall overnight in southeast Newfoundland as conditions will start to deteriorate later this evening. Once it moves into open water of the Labrador Sea it is expected to weaken substantially due to much colder water temperature and higher wind shear.

UPDATE 9/10/21 11 AM

Hurricane Larry now has wind of 80 mph as it races to the NNE at 29 mph. It is still a big storm with hurricane force wind extending to 90 miles from its center and tropical storm force wind up to 240 miles from its center. Larry is still strong for a high latitude storm although some dry air has impacted the system. Larry will drop several inches of rain and bring dangerous storm surge to Newfoundland tonight before moving further north and becoming extratropical. Larry could produce swells along the U.S. coast through Saturday.

UPDATE 9/9/21 5 PM

Hurricane Larry is moving away from Bermuda as conditions start to improve for the island. Larry hasn't changed much over the past few hours with maximum sustained wind of 90 mph and minimum central pressure of 966 mb. Larry will gradually weaken over the next day or so before bringing hurricane conditions to southeast Newfoundland. Larry will then merge with another system near Greenland.

FOX 4 METEOROLOGIST ERIC STONE

UPDATE 9/9/21 2 PM

Hurricane Larry continues to bring tropical storm force wind and heavy rain to Bermuda. At 2 pm, Larry was located 170 miles ENE of Bermuda with tropical storm force wind extending up to 220 miles away from its center. Larry continues to pack wind of 90 mph and will move northward and then NNE toward Newfoundland where hurricane conditions are expected late Friday into early Saturday. Larry will then move further north into colder water of the North Atlantic and become extratropical.

FOX 4 METEOROLOGIST ERIC STONE

UPDATE 9/9/21 11 AM

Hurricane Larry is now a category 1 storm with maximum sustained wind of 90 mph. Its located 190 miles east of Bermuda which will be the closest Larry gets to the island. Tropical storm force wind extends 220 miles away from its center so Bermuda is expected to experience tropical storm conditions today. A tropical storm warning is in effect for Bermuda today. Larry will eventually turn to the northeast and move across southeastern Newfoundland as a Category 1 storm before becoming extra tropical and possibly merging with another cyclone in the northern Atlantic.

FOX 4 METEOROLOGIST ERIC STONE

UPDATE 9/8/21 11 PM

Hurricane Larry may be weakening, but its still a large storm. Hurricane force wind extends to 90 miles away from its center with tropical storm force wind 240 miles from its center. Maximum sustained wind is now at 100 mph with minimum central pressure at 969 mb. Its moving to the NNW at 16 mph and is expected to turn even more to the north then northeast passing east of Bermuda Thursday and move toward southeastern Newfoundland Friday. Eventually Larry will move into the northern Atlantic. Tropical storm warnings are in effect for Bermuda with tropical storm conditions expected overnight into Thursday. Large swells will impact the east coast of the United States through Friday.

FOX 4 METEOROLOGIST ERIC STONE

UPDATE 9/8/21 11 AM

Larry is now a category 2 hurricane with wind of 110 mph and no longer a major hurricane. Minimum central pressure has increased to 966 mb showing signs of weakening. Larry continues to move to the northwest a bit faster at 11 mph and is expected to pass to the east of Bermuda sometime Thursday. Conditions are favorable for Larry to at least maintain its strength for the next day or so before vertical wind shear increases and it moves over colder water. It will then follow the western periphery of a subtropical high which will eventually steer Larry to the north then northeast. Large swells will impact Bermuda, the Bahamas, and parts of the eastern United States throughout the week.

FOX 4 METEOROLOGIST ERIC STONE

UPDATE 9/6/21 2 PM

Larry remains a major hurricane with winds around 120 mph. The storm is forecast to get close to Bermuda by Wednesday the 8th and move into the north Atlantic as an extra tropical cyclone by this weekend. The storm looks very impressive on satellite and has all weekend long with a large eye nearly 80 mi across and a thick Central Dense Overcast of clouds surrounding the eye. Hurricanes that look like this are called annular hurricanes. These types of hurricanes tend to hold up to dry air and wind shear much better than regular hurricanes, so weakening, while expected, could end up being slower than forecast. Either way, it poses no threat to land but could lead to high swells on the U.S. East Coast this week.

FOX 4 CHIEF METEOROLOGIST DEREK BEASLEY

UPDATE 9/3/21 11PM

Hurricane Larry is now a category 3 with winds of 115mph. A ragged looking eye has formed. Conditions are favorable for strengthening to a category 4 this weekend. Larry is forecast to move very close to Bermuda but stay away from the US.

FOX 4 METEOROLOGIST CINDY PRESZLER

UPDATE 9/3/21 5PM

Hurricane Larry is becoming more impressive with 100mph winds. It appears to be going into a rapid intensification cycle & is forecast to become a category 4 this weekend. Although it is not expected to pose a threat to the US, Bermuda needs to watch it carefully.

FOX 4 METEOROLOGIST CINDY PRESZLER

UPDATE 9/3/21 11AM

Hurricane Larry's winds remain at 90mph, a category 1. But conditions are favorable for strengthening over the weekend as it turns to the north. It is still forecast to become a major hurricane.

FOX 4 METEOROLOGIST CINDY PRESZLER

UPDATE 9/2/21 11 PM

Larry has strengthened a bit more with winds of 85 mph and moving west at 20 mph. The latest forecast track brings it close to Bermuda by the middle of next week.

FOX 4 CHIEF METEOROLOGIST DEREK BEASLEY

UPDATE 9/2/21 5 PM

No changes to the strength of Hurricane Larry since this morning. It has 80mph winds, racing to the west at 18mph. Strengthening is forecast.

FOX 4 METEOROLOGIST CINDY PRESZLER

UPDATE 9/2/21 11AM

Larry continues to strengthen over the Atlantic Ocean with winds now up to 80mph. Conditions will be favorable to allow rapid intensification heading into the weekend and it is expected to become a category 4 hurricane by Sunday. The current track keeps Larry well out in the Atlantic as it follows the southern & southwestern perimeter of a large Bermuda high.

FOX 4 METEOROLOGIST CINDY PRESZLER

UPDATE 9/2/21 5 AM

Larry becomes a hurricane in the eastern Atlantic and is forecast to become a category 4 hurricane in the days ahead.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 75 mph with higher gusts. Steady to rapid strengthening is forecast during the next couple of days, and Larry is expected to become a major hurricane by Friday night. Hurricane force winds extend outward up to 15 miles from the center and tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 80 miles. The estimated minimum central pressure is 987 mb.

FOX 4 MORNING METEOROLOGIST TRENT ARIC

UPDATE 9/1/21 11 PM

Larry is ingesting dry air into its circulation and the storm has not strengthened. It will move into a more favorable environment for strengthening by this weekend and it is expected to become a major hurricane. There are no indications that the storm will be a problem for the U.S. down the road, even through there has been a trend west in the latest guidance. Bermuda needs to watch this one carefully however.

FOX 4 CHIEF METEOROLOGIST DEREK BEASLEY

UPDATE 9/1/21 5 PM

Winds are now up to 70 mph. Pressure is at 991 mb. The forward speed is VERY fast at 22 mph. The storm is expected to gradually turn northwest and will get very close to Bermuda early next week. Forecast models continue to keep the storm away from the eastern US and Atlantic Canada due to a series of troughs of low pressure that will swing through the area into next week. These troughs should defect the storm northeastward away from the U.S. East Coast.

FOX 4 CHIEF METEOROLOGIST DEREK BEASLEY

UPDATE 9/1/21 2PM

Winds have increased to 65mph as Tropical Storm Larry moves westward very quickly. Nothing else has changed since this morning. Next update will be at 5pm.

FOX 4 METEOROLOGIST CINDY PRESZLER

UPDATE 9/1/21 11AM

Tropical Storm Larry is becoming better organized as it races westward. Conditions will be favorable for Larry to become a major category 3 hurricane by this weekend. It is moving around the south & southwest side of the Bermuda High in the Atlantic which should force it to turn to the north eventually.

FOX 4 METEOROLOGIST CINDY PRESZLER

UPDATE 9/1/21 5 AM

Tropical Depression 12 has strengthened to Tropical Storm Larry in the eastern Atlantic.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 45 mph with higher gusts. Additional strengthening is forecast during the next few days and Larry is forecast to become a hurricane by late Thursday or Friday. Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 60 miles from the center. The estimated minimum central pressure is 1003 mb.

FOX 4 MORNING METEOROLOGIST TRENT ARIC

UPDATE 8/31/21 11 PM

No change in strength. Forecast to become Larry by Wednesday and expected to become a significant hurricane this weekend. The weakeness in the Bermuda-Azores High created by Julian & Kate will allow soon-to-be Larry to follow the same path. No worries about it becoming a threat to land.

FOX 4 CHIEF METEOROLOGIST DEREK BEASLEY

FIRST UPDATE 8/31/21 5PM

Tropical Depression #12 has formed in the Atlantic and is expected to continue moving in a westerly direction over the next few days with a gradual turn northwest later in the period. Strengthening is expected and it will likely become the next named storm, Larry, on Wednesday.
