The BWS posted the image below and said, “Larry is now a Category 3 hurricane, with maximum sustained winds of 115 mph. Larry is still in the distance, at about 1675 miles from Bermuda to the southeast. Larry is expected to stay a major hurricane over the next few days, and is forecast to make a close approach to Bermuda on Wednesday night and Thursday of next week.

“Although there is still a lot of uncertainty, it would be prudent to review your hurricane plans, and make any early preparations. Regardless of Larry’s exact track, it is certain that large swells will be building, with hazardous seas developing offshore by the end of the holiday weekend and into next week. South shore beaches are also likely to be affected by potentially dangerous surf. Keep abreast of the real-time and forecast conditions at www.weather.bm.”
