In the Tropics: The National Hurricane Center has started issuing official, tropical weather outlooks. While this was previously done on the first day of hurricane season, June 1, last year the NHC decided to start outlooks earlier due to the recent string of pre-season tropical systems. With the latest outlook, no development is expected over the next 5 days.
Long range outlooks also suggesting no development over the next 14 days.
