During the annual Atlantic storm season, which runs June 1-November 30, Citizens monitors the weather forecast 24/7 for potential storms or storm effects. For the most up-to-date information, Citizens relies on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and its National Hurricane Center (NHC) for storm advisories and other storm-related information.

The National Hurricane Center’s tropical storm forecasts are developed by several agencies that work collaboratively to issue timely and informative reports. Citizens also uses a geographic information system (GIS) tool that incorporates data from NHC and helps track and forecast projected storm paths and wind and surge information so Citizens can be ready when a storm strikes Florida. 

Citizens has partnered with the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network (FPREN) to bring you the latest news about catastrophic weather impacting your area. FPREN updates can be heard on your local public radio station and by downloading their free Florida Storms app from iTunes and Google Play.

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
Storm Sam, located about 1600 miles east-southeast of the northern
Leeward Islands.

1. A gale-force, non-tropical low pressure system, the remnants of
Odette, is located a little more than 600 miles west-northwest of
the westernmost Azores. Showers and thunderstorms remain limited
near the low, and this system has only a brief window of opportunity
to become a subtropical or tropical cyclone while it moves generally
south-southeastward over marginally warmer waters during the next
day or so. Strong upper-level winds are expected to develop over
the system beginning tomorrow, which should then limit further
development. Additional information on this system, including gale
warnings, can be found in High Seas Forecasts issued by the National
Weather Service.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...50 percent.

2. A large area of showers and thunderstorms located a few hundred
miles southeast of Bermuda is associated with a surface and
upper-level trough. Some tropical or subtropical development
of this system could occur in the next day or two as it moves
generally north-northwestward. Strong upper-level winds should
prohibit further development by this weekend.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...10 percent.

3. A tropical wave is expected to move off the west coast of Africa by
the end of this weekend. Thereafter, environmental conditions are
forecast to be conducive for gradual development of this system as
it moves westward at 10 to 15 mph over the far eastern tropical
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...30 percent.
