Hurricane Season isn’t over yet! The last official day is the 31st of November. So where are we now? Well as of this morning we have a new storm system to track, the good news is that is won’t be affecting us.

Could this be Patty?

The track takes it toward the Bahamas over the next 24 hours. Right now the computer models do not have this storm getting stronger so this one will be nothing to worry about as it will likely fade away.

About 1000 miles east of the Leeward Islands north of South America, there is a cluster of thunderstorms that might develop into the next storm system.

That storm could move up towards Bermuda by next week. Notice how none of the tracks brings it close to our area but If it gets close to us it is likely that it will weaken as it runs in to cooler seas and colder air.
