The official Tropical Storm and Hurricane Season runs from June 01 through November 30 each year. The Tropical Storm Research Center volunteer staff has analyzed, tracked, evaluated and posted ‘unofficial’ advisories and updates on all named Tropical Storms and Hurricanes since 2006. Our record regarding storm tracks, landfall intensities and locations has been a bit more accurate than some official reporting agencies. With the start of the 2016 Tropical Storm and Hurricane Season nearing, we have already been evaluating potential storm development in the Atlantic, Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico for several weeks. Our computer modeling software is running and we are ready to help you keep yourself and your family advised, unofficially, in the face of these devastating storms. We hope that you will use the link that we are providing below to the National Hurricane Center “Preparedness Week” website. We strongly suggest that everyone who lives along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts of the US review the information presented in this NOAA site. Preparedness Week 2016 runs from May 15 to May 21.

We will post information on all named storms and thank you for following us here at www.gulfstorm.net . Please watch for reports and analysis of any pre-season activity. Take care and Be Safe.
