This season is ending on November 30, 2018. The volunteer staff at The Tropical Storm Research center appreciates the comments and support that we have received from our viewers. This season’s storms have been as destructive as we have seen in recent years and we are keeping all victims and their families in our thoughts and prayers.
We will continue to observe storm formations in the Atlantic, Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico well into December 2018, but we are not anticipating much additional activity.
We will be back in early May, 2019, with season projections and preparedness information. In the mean time, please feel free to use the LINK located in our Blog section to get interactive information on INLAND storms in the US.
