Early start to the 2015 Hurricane Season?

Hurricane Season 2015

Good afternoon… hope everyone is having a great weekend! We are now less than a month away from the official start of the 2015 Hurricane Season and it seems their is a chance we might get started a little early. All major models are showing a possible weak area of low pressure forming just north of the #Bahamas in the next 3-5 days. This will have a very slight chance right now at possibly developing into a tropical or sub-tropical system. As always I will keep a very close eye on this so stay tuned. For now the National Hurricane Center is giving a 30% chance of something developing off the coast in the next 5 days. For now if this even develops It looks like most models keeps majority of the system offshore. Could bring some nice rains and big waves to the east coast this week. Our first named storm of the season would be #Ana… track the tropics 24-7 at http://TrackTheTropics.com!
