THE TROPICS

The 2022 Atlantic hurricane season begins today and we are monitoring activity as we speak. Hurricane Agatha developed in the eastern Pacific basin and made landfall Monday evening. Agatha’s remnants return across the Atlantic and will likely re-develop into Alex. The NHC gives the remains 80% training as it heads to Florida. The exact track remains uncertain, especially given the disagreement of the model at the time. In any case, no impact is expected locally. However, if you have plans for the beach early next week, you should keep an eye on the forecast! There is also another area that the Hurricane Center is monitoring, but only has a 10% chance of developing.

Heavy rain is heading towards South Florida.
