Larry is moving toward the northwest near 12 mph [19 km/h], and this general motion with a slight decrease in forward speed is expected over the next couple of days. A slightly faster northwestward motion is forecast by early Thursday.

“Maximum sustained winds are near 120 mph [195 km/h] with higher gusts. Larry is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Some fluctuations in intensity are possible during the next couple of days. Thereafter, some gradual weakening is forecast.

“Larry is a large hurricane. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles [110 km] from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles [280 km]. The estimated minimum central pressure is 956 mb [28.23 inches].”
