Long way off

[Image of 5-day forecast and coastal areas under a warning or a watch]

Hurricane season started here on June 1. Since then more that one storm has formed in the waters off Mexico and made their way towards us . Fortunately most have not made it this far for various reasons . During the past week one did get here but was so weakened it did not amount to much. The storm in the chart above is the latest and should be here the middle of next week. It is interesting following them on the NOAA Hurricane center (the source of the chart) but when they officially reach the central Pacific sector
that changes. Then its just nerve racking. Seems as if November 1 (end of hurricane season) is a long way off!
