Forecasters are watching powerful Hurricane Larry churning in the Atlantic Basin, warning it could wind up being an even stronger storm than Ida, which left a trail of destruction through multiple states.

The latest projected track for the Category 3 storm, packed with 115 mile-per-hour winds, still keeps it well off the US coast. (See the first image above.)

But impacts from Larry "will be far-reaching even though the storm may stay hundreds of miles away from the Atlantic beaches from Florida to Maine, said AccuWeather.

The storm is expected to bring strong rip currents, rough seas, and gusty winds, along with coastal flooding at times of high tide along the East Coast this week. (See the second image above.)

Larry is the third major hurricane -- Cat 3 or higher -- in the Atlantic this hurricane season. It could hit Cat 4 strength with maximum winds of 140 mph.

With eventual landfall possible in Canada, "significant swells will likely reach the eastern United States coastline after Labor Day," the National Hurricane Center. "These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions."

Larry should approach Bermuda as a major hurricane on Thursday, Sept. 9. For the latest projected track released by the NWS NOAA National Hurricane Center on Tuesday afternoon, Sept. 7, click on the third image above.

There's still uncertainty surrounding its path, and given its strength, and the uncertainty in forecasting the speed and strength of hurricanes this unpredictable season, it should be closely monitored.
