Over the course of the next week, I will be presenting a series of blogs that deal with every aspect of Hurricane season. Instead of bombarding you with information, I've decided to break it down into easy to read, manageable & shorter blogs that won't have you scratching your head. We will talk about everything from what you should have in an emergency kit to how we forecast storms to explaining how every storm has a different impact on our region.
Typically it takes several days to over a week for a storm to mature. Occasionally, as we saw with Hurricane Micheal last year the process of going from a disturbance to a major hurricane can happen within just a couple days! It all has to do with the temperature of the ocean the storm is traveling over and how stable the air is above where the storm is forming.
