BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The National Hurricane Center is watching two new systems that are likely to form over the next several days. One is in the Gulf of Mexico, the second is emerging off the coast of Africa.

The systems show that this busy hurricane season may remain busy late into the traditional window of when hurricanes form.

Meantime, what was Tropical Storm Mindy is expected to dissipate later today. Hurricane Larry continues to track away from the United States mainland.

This is the early morning out look from the National Hurricane Center:

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane 
Larry, located over the western Atlantic a few hundred miles 
north-northeast of Bermuda, and has issued the last advisory on 
Post-Tropical Cyclone Mindy, located a few hundred miles east of 
Charleston, South Carolina. 

1. The northern portion of a tropical wave is producing disorganized 
showers and thunderstorms over Honduras, the western Caribbean Sea, 
and portions of the Yucatan peninsula.  This system is forecast to 
move into the Bay of Campeche and merge with a pre-existing surface 
trough located over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico by this weekend. 
Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive to support 
gradual development, and a tropical depression could form Sunday or 
Monday before the system moves onshore along the western Gulf of 
Mexico coast. 
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...30 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...60 percent.

2. A strong tropical wave is expected to emerge off of the west coast 
of Africa later today or tonight.  Environmental conditions are 
forecast to be conducive for development thereafter, and a tropical 
depression is likely to form by early next week as the system moves 
west-northwestward over the far eastern Atlantic near the Cabo Verde 
Islands.  Interests in the Cabo Verde Islands should monitor the 
progress of this system. 
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.

This is the latest update for Hurricane Larry as of 5 a.m. Friday, September 10th, 2021:

Hurricane Larry tracking from the National Hurricane Center early September 10th, 2021.

Hurricane Larry Discussion Number 39 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL122021 500 AM AST Fri Sep 10 2021 Larry's satellite presentation has remained largely unchanged overnight. Deep convection continues to persist over and to the northeast of the center, with a larger outer band around the eastern portion of the circulation. Subjective Dvorak intensity estimates from TAFB and SAB have lowered slightly, and the initial intensity has been adjusted downward to 75 kt. This lies between the lower subjective satellite estimates and the higher UW/CIMSS ADT and SATCON values. Larry is forecast to remain over warm waters and in low vertical wind shear conditions this morning, therefore little overall change in intensity is expected in the short term. The hurricane will cross the north wall of the Gulf Stream over much cooler SSTs this afternoon, but the increasingly fast forward speed of the system and baroclinic forcing from a mid-latitude trough approaching from the west is likely to help Larry maintain hurricane strength as is passes over southeastern Newfoundland tonight. Larry is forecast to become extratropical shortly thereafter, and some slight weakening should occur before the post-tropical cyclone is absorbed by a larger extratropical low near southern Greenland in a couple of days. The NHC intensity forecast is similar to the HCCA and IVCN consensus aids and also follows the trends of the latest global model guidance. Larry has turned north-northeastward or 015/23 kt. The track guidance is once again in excellent agreement that Larry should turn northeastward today and continue to accelerate ahead of the aforementioned trough. The center of Larry should pass over southeastern Newfoundland tonight, but users are reminded to not focus on the exact details of the track forecast as strong winds, heavy rainfall, and a dangerous storm surge will extend far from the center of the cyclone. The updated official forecast lies near the center of the track guidance envelope, but is slightly faster than the previous forecast during the first 36 hours. Key Messages: 1. Larry is forecast to move over portions of southeastern Newfoundland tonight as it undergoes transition to a hurricane-force post-tropical cyclone. Hurricane conditions, a dangerous storm surge, and heavy rainfall are expected in portions of southeastern Newfoundland where a Hurricane Warning in effect. 2. Large swells generated by Larry will continue to affect the Bahamas, Bermuda, and the east coast of the United States and Atlantic Canada through Saturday. These swells will cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions, and beachgoers and other interests along these coasts are urged to follow the guidance of lifeguards and local officials.
