Hurricane Larry is a powerful hurricane that is expecting to still impact a state in the Northeast region of the U.S. later this week.
Hurricane Larry is Incredibly Strong!
With maximum stained wings of 125 mph, the intense Category 3 hurricane is expecting to pass well offshore another Northeast state, but it could deliver treacherous surf and rip currents to the coast.
In fact, the huge swells from Hurricane Larry are, in fact, “likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions,” this is according to the National Hurricane Center.
“Toward the New England coast, it could be pushing some ocean swell, thus could create some concerns for rip current and difficult surf along the coast,” said William Babcock. He is a meteorologist at the National Weather Service’s Boston Office.
Hurricane Larry: High Surf in Massachusetts
Today, the surf along the Massachusetts coast is expecting to be 3 to 5 feet. On Friday, it will rise to 5 to 8 feet and then come back down on Sunday.
“The jackpot, at this point, seems to be Friday,” Babcock said. “By Saturday, it may still be rough, but it is beginning to come down at that point.”
Moving toward a British island territory in the North Atlantic ocean, Larry is approaching during the next many days. It will be a huge hurricane. Thus it brings a risk of big winds. Also extreme rainfall thus coastal flooding to the island by the middle of this week.
Pleasant Temperatures on Their Way by Next Week
The Bay State will enjoy some drier weather later by Monday and Tuesday. This is before the Massachusetts coast will feel the impact from Larry.
Before the Massachusetts coast feels the impact from Larry, the Bay State should enjoy some dry weather later Monday and Tuesday with very agreeable temperatures in the 70s and 80s.
On late Wednesday, another cold front is expecting to them pass into Thursday. That will bring in a period of shows and some scattered thunder.
Massachusetts Is Familiar a lot of Raining Falling
For the last couple of months, Massachusetts has been drenched. In fact, there have been four tropical storm systems that have tumbled through the Bay State this Summer. It has to lead to non-drought conditions for most of the state. Especially after Hurricane Ida’s remains from last week, that would make Boston’s rainfall total of 4.23 inches. It would already exceeded the average September rainfall total of 3.56 inches.
