Tropical Storm Headed for Florida

The storm system could become a hurricane on Election Day.

The National Weather Service says Florida may experience another tropical storm system this week, which has the potential to become a hurricane. The storm, which is approaching from the Atlantic side, may impact the state as early as Election Day.

The National Hurricane Center, which is located in Miami, has issued warnings of storm surges, rain, and wind for late Monday. The five-day graph they have issued shows the eastern half of Florida in the projected area to experience the storm. The estimated formation chance in the next five days is 90 percent. Should it become a hurricane, it would be named Nicole.

The official hurricane season in the U.S. lasts from the first of June through the 30th of November.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Director Ken Graham as he oversees the National Weather Service.
  • For Acting Director Jamie Rhome as he manages the National Hurricane Center.
  • For Governor DeSantis and other state and local officials as they continue recovery efforts from Hurricane Ian and prepare for this tropical storm.
