It looks like we will continue with the very busy 2017 hurricane season right on in to October. The latest 5-day outlook from the National Hurricane Center indicates that there are a couple of areas of interest to monitor over the next few days.

As Lee and Maria both head out in to the far reaches of the North Atlantic, we will begin focusing more on areas closer to the western part of the basin from here on out. The natural progression of climatology suggests that the region between Africa and the Lesser Antilles becomes less favorable this time of year. As such, we shift our attention more and more to the southwest Atlantic, Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico.

I will have  full video discussion posted early this afternoon and will go over not only the current systems that are worth watching but also a look in to what October may bring and why.
