Hurricane Central 5 Changes Coming to Hurricane Season Forecasts

https://weather.com/storms/hurricane/news/changes-coming-this-hurricane-season-2017
<snip>
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.

2. Thank you for sharing.

 

Thank you for sharing. It is really important for people living in the storm prone areas to be prepared well in advance, it really helps. The technology has become very advanced and with the help of it, people can be cautious. One of my relatives living in Florida told me that since they get an alert on weather conditions and the weather is very unpredictable, they have made changes in their house to help protect themselves during severe conditions. She told me that they have installed the hurricane windows Miami, have got the insurance covered, stores non-perishable food items and water and also flashlights, and keeps the first-aid kit at hand. These small things prove to be helpful, if not completely but to a greater extent. Also, if they have time in hand, they can always shift to some other place distant from the storm.

3. Welcome to DU Helen

Preparation is the key to surviving hurricane season. We just finished using all of the water we stored for last year - and we were very lucky that Matthew wasn't a direct hit.

Thank to the experts we do get lots of warnings for hurricanes.
