Post-Tropical Cyclone LARRY

Post-Tropical Cyclone Larry Discussion Number  44
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL122021
1100 AM AST Sat Sep 11 2021
Satellite images indicate that Larry has completed its transition to 
a post-tropical cyclone with most of the deep convection dissipating 
near the low-level center and frontal features developing.  In 
addition, the low- and mid-level centers are now well separated, 
and the cyclone appears a little weaker.  The initial intensity is 
estimated to be 60 kt.  The post-tropical system is very large and 
gale-force winds and high seas extend far from the center. It is 
interesting to note that up to just several hours ago Larry had 
maintained an inner core and a fairly tropical appearance despite 
being at very high latitudes and over quite cold water.  Larry is 
racing northeastward, with the initial motion estimated to be 030/42 
kt.  The storm is expected to merge with another large extratropical 
low tonight or early Sunday.
This is the last NHC advisory on Larry.  For more information on
this system, see High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather
Service, under AWIPS header NFDHSFAT1, WMO header FZNT01 KWBC, and
