The National Hurricane Center is tracking an area of disturbed weather over the Gulf of Mexico that forecasters say will move toward Florida this week.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Larry is expected to send rough surf, including dangerous rip currents, to the United States East Coast, the NHC said. Larry remains a category three major hurricane, but does not directly threaten any coastal areas.

Swells generated by Hurricane Larry are affecting the Lesser Antilles and are expected to spread westward to portions of the Greater Antilles, the Bahamas, and Bermuda today through Tuesday.

Significant swells should reach the east coast of the United States and Atlantic Canada by midweek and continue affecting these shores through the end of the week.

These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.

A tropical disturbance is is drifting over the north Yucatan Peninsula and is expected to move slowly north or northeast over the Gulf of Mexico, likely reaching the northern Gulf Coast in a few days.
