Irma, Jose and Katia all part of a very busy peak time of the hurricane season

Updated: 12:15 pm ET Friday Sept 8

It is close to the peak of the hurricane season and the warmer than normal SST profile for the Atlantic Basin is now showing what it can do. We have three powerful hurricanes, all of which will impact land in one way or another. We have not seen a season like this in quite some time – and we have a long way to go yet.

I am in Florida preparing to set out equipment for monitoring the impacts of Irma over the weekend. I plan to put live cameras and two weather stations (wind and air pressure sensors) throughout the southern part of the peninsula. Exactly where I set up the equipment remains to be seen but I have some ideas already.

To follow the live cams and weather data, you will need our iOS app developed for iPhone. It is called Hurricane Impact. It is available on the Apple App Store for $3.99 and the funding helps to support my job in this effort to bring you the best hurricane information and field updates possible.

We also have a subscription service available called HurricaneTrack Insider – see the ad for it on the right column. All of our content is posted there as well exclusively for our members – some have been with us for over 12 years.

I have produced an in-depth video discussion covering Irma, Jose and Katia. Please give it a watch as there is some important information about how to find out what to expect in your LOCAL area. The next update will posted here early this evening from our colleague in New Orleans, meteorologist Zack Fradella.
