Tropical Storm Ian 2022

09/24/22:

Tropical Depression Nine turned into Tropical Storm Ian overnight, and is continuing on the track the National Weather Service predicted, intensifying in strength as it crosses the Caribbean Sea. Ian is forecast to become a major hurricane over the southeast gulf Tuesday and Wednesday. There is still a high level of uncertainty regarding the track forecast as the storm approaches Florida. 

Based on the storm’s current path, residents should have the weekend to ensure all of their preparations are complete. Per the National Weather Service, the chance of rain increases across all of South Florida on Monday, with any significant impacts from Ian beginning on Tuesday. 

According to the National Weather Service, the storm is still expected to turn to the northwest on Sunday and Monday, but the location and extent of impact remains uncertain at this time. The Gulf coast of Florida has the highest probability for sustained tropical storm force winds through Wednesday night.
