Just a few days after Hurricane Ida left terrible destruction in several states, forecasters are wary of another storm in the Atlantic, which may become even more ferocious.

Larry, now a Category 3 hurricane, could escalate into a Category 4 storm, according to Accuweather meteorologists. A Category 4 hurricane like Ida when it hit the coast in Louisiana has winds ranging from 210 to 240 km / h. If Larry's wind speed exceeds 240 km per hour, it will be the most powerful Atlantic hurricane this year - even stronger than Ida.

The hurricane is expected to pass through the open waters of the Atlantic for several more days, but it could eventually approach Bermuda and North America around mid-week. Most likely Larry bypasses the United States and will remain a few hundred miles from the northeastern coast of the United States, but will still create problems.

However, much of the US east coast can feel the effects of Larry by midweek: Strong waves from the storm "can cause life-threatening waves and currents," said Hurricane Research Center.

A slight change in hurricane strength is predicted over the next few days, although more significant fluctuations in intensity are possible. Larry is expected to remain a major hurricane until mid-this week.

The center says Larry is a major hurricane, with hurricane-force winds extending up to 70 km from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extending up to 280 km.

Larry became the fifth hurricane — and third major hurricane — last week in an already tough Atlantic hurricane season that has already seen 12 named hurricanes. The season lasts from June 1 to November 30; the peak was on September 3.

“We're ahead of schedule, especially with named storms,” said Colorado State University hurricane researcher Phil Klotzbach. On average, there are usually about six named storms through Aug. 31, including tropical storms and hurricanes, he said.

The United States is also ahead of schedule in the number of named storms hitting the shore, Klotzbach said. We had five: Danny, Elsa, Fred, Henry and Ida. Based on past averages, Klotzbach said the typical number of hurricanes affecting the coastline during this period is two.

Leading experts in hurricanes from AccuWeather and Weather.com agree that hurricane activity is higher than normal in 2021.

Larry could hold out until the end of the second week of September and become the longest-lived named hurricane in this season.

Larry's rains could hit the Louisiana and Mississippi areas hit hardest by Ida. A thundercloud can also travel over Florida. AccuWeather forecasters said that a westward or eastward bias of the bad weather track could save the wetlands of the central Gulf Coast from some of the heaviest rains.

"Heavy rain could migrate east along the upper Gulf Coast midweek and then possibly across northern Florida Thursday through Friday," AccuWeather senior meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.
