Tropical Storm Ian Forms over Central Atlantic

September 12, 2016

[ebs_notification type="alert-info" close="false" ]Note: This storm is NOT a threat to the United States or Florida. However, a weak tropical wave will likely bring some heavy rain to parts of the state this week.[/ebs_notification]

The ninth named storm of the 2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season formed Monday morning over the central Atlantic Ocean. The National Hurricane Center began issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Ian at 11 am, stating that maximum sustained winds were at 40 mph. Ian was located 1840 miles southeast of Bermuda and moving northwest at 13 mph.


Tropical Storm Ian is no threat to the United States and primarily a shipping interest only. The storm is forecast to strengthen over the next 72 hours as it moves northwest over the open waters of the Atlantic. Thereafter, the system is likely to lose its tropical characteristics and turn to the north and northeast as it weakens.
