This One May Fizzle, But “Above Average” Season Still Predicted… Prepare Now…

National Hurricane Center advisory map as of 8 a.m. Tuesday, August 9th, 2022.


BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The National Hurricane Center says the wave we’ve all been watching for several days may still grow to Tropical Depression status, but is unlikely to survive the weekend. Even if it turns into nothing, the NOAA forecasters are still predicting an “above average” hurricane season as we enter what’s known as “peak hurricane season” now.

Several tropical waves are being monitored by the National Hurricane Center, although none at the moment are expected to grow to a strength that requires tracking. Despite the slow start, it’s never too soon to craft your hurricane plan. This is a good time to purchase — and store — bottled water and other hurricane supplies.

This is the Tuesday morning update from the National Hurricane Center:

Tropical Weather Outlook NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL 800 AM EDT Tue Aug 9 2022

This system is expected to move westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph across the tropical Atlantic during the next several days.
