In the tropics: Larry is destined to be powerful and long-lasting Atlantic hurricane. A break in a high pressure ridge should let Larry curve away from North America by early next week. In the unlikely event this friendly track does not materialize, your First Alert Weather Team will advise. A period of enhanced swell, surf, and rip current activity will develop by Labor Day in any case. Please stay focused and prepared:
