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:

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
Storm Peter, located about 100 miles north-northwest of the northern
Leeward Islands, and on Tropical Storm Rose, located over the
eastern tropical Atlantic Ocean.

1. Showers and thunderstorms are currently somewhat limited associated
with a tropical wave located a few hundred miles southwest of the
Cabo Verde Islands. However, environmental conditions are expected
to become more conducive for development, and a tropical depression
is likely to form by Thursday or Friday while the system moves
westward at 10 to 15 mph across the eastern and central tropical
Atlantic Ocean.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.

2. A storm-force, non-tropical low pressure system, the remnants of
Odette, is located about 700 miles west-northwest of the westernmost
Azores. This low could acquire some subtropical characteristics over
marginally warm waters during the next few days while it executes a
small cyclonic loop over the north-central Atlantic Ocean. However,
by the end of the week, this system is expected to encounter more
hostile environmental conditions. Additional information on this
system, including storm warnings, can be found in High Seas
Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service can be
