The Orlando Sentinel reports:
Tropical Storm Larry formed Wednesday morning, gaining strength in the eastern Atlantic on a path to become a major hurricane, the National Hurricane Center said. As of 11 a.m., the system was located 275 miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph moving west at 22 mph.
The 12th named storm of the year is expected to become a hurricane by Thursday afternoon. By Saturday, rapid intensification is forecast. Larry could be pushing for a Category 3 strength of 120 mph because of warm sea-surface temperatures, low vertical wind shear, and Larry’s tightly formed inner core.
