2017 Tropical Storm Season winding down…

After several US landfalls since August, there may be a pause in storm formation for now.  We are providing the link to the National Hurricane Center for current information and any archived storm data for the 2017 season.

That being said, we are still monitoring all areas where Atlantic Basin storms form, in case any late season storms were to develop.

Please use the link below to the National Hurricane Center in Miami, for official information on all named tropical origin storms.

Named Storm Philippe – 2017

Named Storm Philippe formed in the western Caribbean from a Tropical Depression.   Persons in Florida south of a line from Fort Meyers to Vero Beach should be monitoring the progress of this storm this weekend for some heavy rain, gusty wind, high surf and some tornadoes. This is a quick moving storm, so due to the limited US coastal involvement of this storm, this will be our only unofficial advisory.
