Hurricane Maria will stay more than 500 miles away from Florida, but effects are being felt along all Atlantic beaches this weekend.
Summer is over, but hurricane season is not. In fact, more hurricanes have hit Florida during the month of October than any other month.
Hurricane Maria is moving over the same waters Irma plowed through just two weeks ago, but on a much different course with a much better outcome as it relates to the U.S.
Hurricane Maria has rapidly intensified into a dangerous Category 4 storm. Catastrophic damage is likely on the island of Dominica tonight, and very possible in Puerto on Wednesday.
Maria could be the second major hurricane in as many weeks to threaten the islands of the northeast Caribbean.
The tropics are still very busy, although there are no direct threats to Florida for at least the next week.
While Jose is not a direct threat to Florida, it will make for some unpleasant boating and beach conditions along Florida's Atlantic coast.
Newly formed Tropical Depression Fourteen is no threat to land over the next five days.
Hundreds of thousands of South Floridians in the path of Major Hurricane Irma have less than 24 hours to make a decision. A decision to find higher ground, a sturdier structure, or hit the highway. Doing nothing is also a decision, but potentially a life-threatening one.
Major Hurricane Irma is still a Category 5 storm and forecast to hit South Florida Sunday.
