Headline: First tropical storm of hurricane season may develop near Florida, Bahamas by this weekend (date 12-May-2020)
Sounds scary for these reasons (emphases mine)
- “Weeks ahead of schedule, the hurricane season’s first tropical system could develop near Florida and the Bahamas this weekend, forecasters said Tuesday.”
- “The official start to the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season is June 1“
Oh, but not to worry.
- “As of midday Tuesday, the National Hurricane Center said there was a 50% chance of development within the next five days. “
- ” . . . although storms often form before that date, as they have in each of the past five years.“
So not much there.
