BEACH FORECAST:  Scattered to numerous storms especially Saturday & Sunday.  High in the upper 80’s.  Gulf water temperature 88. 

TROPICAL OUTLOOK :    The tropics are STILL very quiet for now.

And once again — except for one Invest off in the Pacific near central America, there are NO tropical cyclones anywhere in the world . Spooky….

The NOAA updated hurricane forecast came out yesterday.  It still calls for a very active season.  Keep in mind, in a typical year, 75% of the activity occurs between August 15 to October 15th
