ORLANDO, Fla. – The 2022 Atlantic Hurricane season begins on June 1, and the National Hurricane Center has issued the first tropical outlook of the season.

An area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms associated with low pressure is on the radar, but with the surface pressure remaining high, this will keep environmental conditions unfavorable for significant development.

The National Hurricane Center has given this area a 10% chance of formation for the next 2-to-5 days as heavy rain and gusty winds are expected to move inland over the central Gulf Coast over the next couple of days.

This will be no threat to Central Florida.

The main impacts will be heavy rain and gusty winds from southeastern Louisiana to the western Florida panhandle. Meanwhile, we start the week with isolated to scattered afternoon storms. Above average warmth continues, with highs expected in the low 90s.
