Hurricane Hunters Fly Over North Escambia Checking Out Potential Tropical System

June 30, 2014

The Hurricane Hunter aircraft flew over the North Escambia area this morning as part of their investigation into a system near the east coast of Florida that may become the season’s first tropical depression.

The flight was to measure upper level winds in our area to determine any impact on the system. The tropical depression, if it forms, is set to move the up East Coast of the U.S.  and have  no real impact on our local Northwest Florida forecast.

Some computer models are forecasting the system will strengthen toward the Carolinas on Friday and become Tropical Storm Arthur before moving off into the Atlantic.
