Well Seasoned


The Saints and LSU’s Tigers are not the only locals dealing with the end of a season. On a positive note, today, December 1st, marks the end the 2015 Hurricane Season. New Orleans and the Gulf Coast escaped the cautionary period without any significant storms.

In the New Orleans, we often associate Halloween and the start of Costume Season with the end of Hurricane Season. However, Hurricane Season lasts until November 30th. In case a reminder is necessary, Tropical Storm Kate is swirling around very close to Florida right now.


Eyes on the Storm: NOAA's 2015 Hurricane Forecast


By Lucy Leonard

With only a few days left until the official start of hurricane season on June 1, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration today (5.27) released its initial forecast for this year’s Atlantic season. Though predicted to be a below-normal season, the NOAA says that does not mean that hurricanes may not occur. 


Tropical Update: TD2 Not Expected to Strengthen


Despite coaxing from ratings-hungry Weather Channel producers, a tropical disturbance making its way west across the Atlantic Ocean is expected to collapse into downward spiral of depression. As of Tuesday (7-22) morning, Tropical Depression 2 was not expected to reach Tropical Storm strength, according to National Hurricane Center forecaster Michael Brennan.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Humberto weakened to a tropical storm out in the Atlantic, but started its westward journey.
