The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has warned that Hurricane Larry in the Atlantic Ocean is likely to bring life-threatening currents by midweek to the US East Coast, which continues to deal with the aftermath of the fateful Hurricane Ida.
Large swells are expected to impact the Caribbean islands from Sunday through Tuesday before reaching Bermuda, the East Coast and the Canadian Atlantic sometime during the week, according to an NHC advisory on Saturday night, Business Insider reported.
Hurricane Larry would bring deadly currents to the east coast
“These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and undertow conditions, and bathers and other interests along these shores are urged to follow the advice of lifeguards and local officials over the next week,” the advisory said. of the NHC.
The NHC forecast advisory for Hurricane Larry estimates that the cyclone will maintain a maximum wind speed of 120 mph, with gusts up to nearly 150 mph. The powerful Category 3 Hurricane Larry maintains its strong winds of 205 kilometers per hour (125 miles) and threatens between this Monday and next week with rip currents to the US and Canadian coasts and the West Indies archipelago.
The system moves northwest
According to the NHC, Hurricane Larry was about 1,415 kilometers (880 miles) east of the North Leeward Islands and about 2,070 kilometers (1,285 miles) southeast of Bermuda on Sunday. The NHC expects the waves generated by Larry to reach the Lesser Antilles today and spread to portions of the Greater Antilles, the Bahamas and Bermuda on Monday and Tuesday.
A significant swell is likely to reach the east of the US and Canadian coasts and cause dangerous rip currents in the middle of next week. The system is moving northwest at about 20 kilometers per hour (13 miles). Little change in strength is forecast over the next few days, although fluctuations in intensity will be possible.
Could be extended
Larry, a Category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale out of 5, will remain at that strength for the first part of next week, according to meteorologists. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 75 kilometers (45 miles) from the center and up to 280 kilometers (175 miles) with tropical storm force.
The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) forecasts that the current Atlantic hurricane season will have above-average activity.
Larry is the third major hurricane of the season
“There is certainly the possibility that Larry might go far enough west to pass near or even over Bermuda, probably like a major hurricane,” AccuWeather senior meteorologist Randy Adkins said Sunday.
“As it currently stands, however, it seems more likely that Larry will end up far enough to the east to keep Bermuda from suffering the brunt of the storm.” Larry is the third major hurricane of the season, along with Category 3 Grace and Category 4 Ida.
Larry could be the longest running system of the season
Forecasters said there is a chance Larry will exist until next week, making him the longest-running system of the season, beating out Ida, which lasted nine days, according to Sun sentinel. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening swells and affect current conditions.
Larry is forecast to remain a major hurricane for the next five days. The last hurricane to maintain Category 3 or higher status for five days was Maria in 2017, according to Colorado State University hurricane expert Phil Klotzbach.
The 2021 season has been more intense than the previous one
So far, the 2021 season has been more intense than the 2020 season, with even fewer named storms. The next three named storms will be named Mindy, Nicholas, and Odette. The Atlantic hurricane season runs through November 30, and September 10 marks the peak of the storm season.
So far, there are no hurricane watches or warnings in effect on Sept. 5, but the hurricane center said Larry would churn the ocean and the swell would reach the Lesser Antilles later in the day and continue west to the Greater Antilles. , the Bahamas and Bermuda the next two days.
In 2021, four hurricanes have formed in the Atlantic basin
This year, hurricanes have caused dozens of victims and millionaire damages in the United States. The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) forecasts that the current Atlantic hurricane season will have above-average activity.
So far this year, four hurricanes have formed in the Atlantic basin, Henri, Grace, Elsa and Ida, the latter
