In the tropics: The National Hurricane Center has begun publishing official tropical weather forecasts. While previously on the first day of hurricane season, June 1 of last year, the NHC decided to start the outlook earlier due to the recent string of pre-season tropical systems. In the early outlook for this year, no developments are expected over the next 5 days.

For several days now, some computer models have consistently hinted at tropical activity around the Gulf of Mexico ahead of Memorial Day. There are many click-bait sources that provide misleading information about this possibility. It is important to know that this is only a model and tends to exaggerate tropical development at this time of year. There are many weather variables that go into tropical development like sea surface temperatures, upper level patterns, wind speeds and much more. Trust that Storm Station meteorologists are tracking tropical developments around the clock. Stay tuned and we’ll keep you updated on the tropics throughout the season.
