Early May 2019 Tropical Disturbance off of Florida.

It probably won’t develop much until it gets off the coast of Florida again, and even then, development is unlikely. But Florida will get rain.

2019 Hurricane Predictions from Colorado State

They are predicting 13 named tropical storms, five of which will become hurricanes.

That is slightly below average. Of course, that is only a prediction, so one must take it with a bag of salt.

Hurricane Ike

Sin comentarios »

From all the indications, Hurricane Ike is going to have a major impact on the Texas coast during the next 36 hours.  Ike is a huge storm with category 2 winds (as of now, perhaps 3 by landfall) but since it is immense, the storm surge is going to cause the most damage on all sides of the point of landfall.  Winds will be a large problem nearest the landfall, but surge is going to be a problem all along the coast. You can join the discussion here: http://www.hurricane.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=191
