Hurricane Central 5 Changes Coming to Hurricane Season Forecasts

1. Advisories Will Be Issued Before Storms Form

The NHC will issue advisories for systems that have yet to develop but pose a threat of bringing tropical-storm-force or hurricane-force winds to land areas within 48 hours. These systems will be dubbed "potential tropical cyclones" by the NHC.

The "potential tropical cyclones" will be treated like tropical depressions, named storms and hurricanes. NHC will produce a forecast projected path, watches and warnings and text products, including a full discussion and the forecast advisory every six hours until the threat ends. Advisories will be issued for potential tropical cyclones at 5 a.m., 11 a.m., 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. EDT.
