2009-11-04_145509The hurricane season doesn’t end until November 30. Most of this season’s tropical activity has been east of the US coast. November storms usually form farther south than the September-October variety, and often over the warmer Caribbean or lower Gulf of Mexico waters.
One of the most remarkable late season storms was Kate in 1985 that traveled from just north of Puerto Rico into the Gulf of Mexico where it grew into a hurricane before striking the Florida Gulf coast near Tallahassee on Thanksgiving weekend.
Tropical Depression #11, just east of the Nicaraguan coast is moving west northwest around 7 mph with a turn toward the north expected. This will take it over parts of Nicaragua and Honduras. If it continues on a northerly course it will be over the warm northwest Caribbean waters during the weekend. As a tropical storm passing near western Cuba or the northern Yucatan peninsula, it may aim at some part of the US Gulf coast by the middle of next week.
Stay tuned!
