Things to remember this hurricane season

ORLANDO, Fla. – Hurricane season officially begins June 1, but Saturday the National Hurricane Center issued its first-ever May daily Tropical Weather Outlook.

In years past, special outlooks were created only if there was a disturbance of interest prior to June 1. Daily outlooks would then commence June 1 regardless of development potential.

Since there has been a storm prior to the start of hurricane season each of the last six years, the National Hurricane Center decided it would begin their outlooks May 15.

There is no new development expected over the next five days in the Atlantic basin. Outlook issued May 15.

Currently, no tropical development is expected over the next five days.
