During the annual Atlantic storm season, which runs June 1-November 30, Citizens monitors the weather forecast 24/7 for potential storms or storm effects. For the most up-to-date information, Citizens relies on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and its National Hurricane Center (NHC) for storm advisories and other storm-related information.

The National Hurricane Center’s tropical storm forecasts are developed by several agencies that work collaboratively to issue timely and informative reports. Citizens also uses a geographic information system (GIS) tool that incorporates data from NHC and helps track and forecast projected storm paths and wind and surge information so Citizens can be ready when a storm strikes Florida. 

Citizens has partnered with the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network (FPREN) to bring you the latest news about catastrophic weather impacting your area. FPREN updates can be heard on your local public radio station and by downloading their free Florida Storms app from iTunes and Google Play.

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

1. Shower activity associated with the broad low pressure area over
the Bay of Campeche and the adjacent land areas has become a little
better organized since yesterday. This system will move little
tonight, and little if any development is expected during that time
due to interaction with land. However, the low should begin to
move northward on Thursday, and a tropical depression is likely to
form by late Thursday or on Friday when the low moves across the
western Gulf of Mexico. An Air Force Reserve Unit reconnaissance
aircraft is scheduled to investigate the area on Thursday, if
necessary. Regardless of development, heavy rainfall will continue
over portions of Central America and southern Mexico during the
next few days. Heavy rains should also begin to affect portions of
the northern Gulf Coast on Friday. Please consult products from
your local meteorological service for more information.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...80 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.
