Skip to comments.Larry Forecasted To Become ‘Major Hurricane’ This Weekend (East Coast)
Posted on 09/02/2021 1:36:42 PM PDT by blam
Tens of millions of Americans woke up on the US East Coast Thursday to the aftermath of destruction left behind by remnants of Hurricane Ida. Now meteorologists are turning their attention to a hurricane in the Atlantic Basin that could be upgraded to a major hurricane (Category 3 or stronger) by this weekend.
According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC), hurricane larry is packing 80 mph winds and strengthening as it travels west at 17 mph. The eye of the storm is about 660 miles west of the southernmost Cabo Verde Islands.
NHC’s cone of uncertainty is tracking near Bermuda early next week. It’s still too early for the weather agency to project any further than next Tuesday, and landfall impacts are unknown at the moment. But as we move into the weekend, computer models will have a better idea of where the storm is headed next.
If the storm tracks towards the East Coast and or the Northeast, it would be absolutely devastating for some areas that were terrorized by remnants of Hurricane Ida on Wednesday night.
Statistically speaking, we should remind readers that the most active part of the Atlantic hurricane season is already underway, as the tropics are awakening. The peak of the season is Sept. 15.
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecasters recently bumped up their forecast to 21 named storms this season.
Looks like it’s heading for Greenland
A lot can happen, but it looks like it’s turning early already.
I just read somewhere that now 22 are dead.
The Democrats will doing nothing during the Storms but yell , GLOBAL WARMING
I’ve read “once in a Century” way too many times.
I think these shitbirds don’t understand the meaning...
All of the forecast models have this turning far from the east coast of the US.
It is a major hurricane now,just not trashing anything but open water.
Models all, at this time show it staying E of the US
Stick to the National Hurricane center for you updates vs the ZULU bros or whoever they are as all the do is cut and past NHC info
Yeah, we seem to have once-in-a-century storms of some type every year...
They are trying to figure out whether the dead are due to global warming or being unvaccinated.
How much rain and wind blasting would it take to clean up NYC?
Is this a sign Larry Elders is going to be Governor of Cali?
It’s retarded to name hurricanes after men.
windy.com is forecasting landfall North of Newfoundland, CA.
Highest strength approaching Bermuda (maybe 5.0) but no direct impact.
that were terrorized by remnants of Hurricane Ida
Who writes this crap?
It rained...buckets, true but nothing compared to LA. Even those folks weren’t terrorized...they were devastated and their power grid was shattered all to hell. But they were not curled into little fetal balls...
That didn’t happen til the rain even formerly known as Ida crossed the mason dixon line. And those were mostly newscasters.
Still I would hate to have my home destroyed by a storm named lahr-wee. Laurence, maybe...but not lahr-wee.
Is this a sign Larry Elder is going to be Governor of Cali?
Dang it..I know there is no “S” at the end of his name.
“ How much rain and wind blasting would it take to clean up NYC?
It would be a lot cooler if Hurricane Larry was headed for the West Coast. Let’s hope it goes way North and doesn’t do any damage.
Larry? No Juan or Karen? Come on! If 2021 needs a named storm, name it KAREN!
Stay safe, all of you in the path. Farmer’s Almanac is predicting a cold winter for me - RECORD BREAKING COLD.
So, none of us escape any of this nonsense. :(
