SEVERE WEATHER ALERT:

Tropical Discussion

As we enter July, there are two waves being watched, and neither of them appear to be developing. Last year we had two named systems make landfall in the U.S. in July Cindy and Dennis, that formed on the 3rd and 4th of July respectively. Dennis affected the panhandle as a Category 3 storm, while Cindy made landfall near the tip of Louisiana as a minimal Category 1 hurricane. Additionally, three other storms formed in July, including the earliest Category 5 storm on record in Emily, setting the 2005 on its record-setting pace. No such activity so far this year.
