Our focus returns to the tropics, with major Hurricane Larry expected to become a category four hurricane. It won’t affect the U.S. coast, but could threaten Bermuda.

Also in the tropics, we are keeping tabs on a disturbance over the Yucatan that has a 30% chance of tropical development over the next five days. This tropical low could develop over the warm waters of the southern Gulf and could possibly become a tropical depression next week.
