BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The National Hurricane Center Monday morning afternoon to monitor a tropical wave far east of Florida. The wave developed over the weekend and continues to move in a northwesterly direction.
While there is absolutely no reason to panic at this point, it serves as a reminder that it’s never too soon to have a hurricane plan in place. Forecasters, just days ago, reaffirmed that this will be an “above average” hurricane season, with 14-20 named storms, 6-10 of those storms becoming hurricanes, and 3 to 5 of those storms becoming major hurricanes.
For now, the system being monitored is just a tropical wave, but the Monday morning forecast suggests it could become a tropical depression later in the week. The next name to be used is Danielle.
