Hurricane Irma time-lapse taken on Miami Beach, FL between Friday, September 8th, 2017 and Monday, September 11th, 2017.
While the cold front draping across the Southeast and the broad low in the North Atlantic may be indicative of Fall, we have a serious tropical system in the Atlantic Basin just Northeast of Puerto Rico.
Our fifth named storm of the 2014 Atlantic Basin Tropical Season is chugging along nicely in the Western Atlantic. The storm is nearing Category 3 status, as conditions have been favorable for development- and will continue to be conducive for continued strengthening. Luckily, the storm poses no threat to land…except for high surf along exposed coasts.
