hurricane season begins today, runs through November 30
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – As Hurricane Season officially kicks off today, National Hurricane is monitoring the remnants of Hurricane Agatha over Mexico as the system is showing signs of reorganizing in the Gulf where it would become the first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season.
Projections show the system will become ‘Alex’ by the weekend as conditions appear conducive for gradual development, and this system is likely to become a tropical depression while it moves northeastward over the northwestern Caribbean Sea and southeastern Gulf of Mexico during the next couple of days.
Alex is projected to impact the Florida Keys and Florida this weekend.
Forecasters are giving the system an 80-percent chance at forming into tropical cyclone over the next five days and 70-percent over the next 48 hours.
