At this point in time, a tropical storm watch has been issued up the U.S. East Coast from Flagler Beach, Florida to Surf City, North Carolina. Earlier this week, the storm had already produced heavy rains in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico and caused allot of action in Cuba. The storm will be watched very closely, as it is expected to follow the East Coast for at least the next couple of days. Weather it will strengthen or not will depend on how well the storm survives going through the mainland of Florida.
What we have seen for the Atlantic Hurricane Season prior to the first day is what should be considered 'the calm before the storm'. In the central U.S. tornadoes have been ravishing Oklahoma for the last 2-3 weeks, and now it looks like hurricane alley will awaken soon. It is expected that the hurricane activity to reach the United States this year may at least double that in the past year, mainly because of the absence of the El Nino.
Until this storm finally disintegrated, the progress of the storm will be reported daily - right here.
