Quiet Tropics Allow You Time To Prepare for Hurricane Season- Are There Hurricane Highways?

2 min read


Nothing happening in the tropics today.

Always lots of speculation in May.

Racing season actually.

Fronts still racing across the USA from West to East

High Rain Totals next 7 days.

It’s May and frontal boundaries don’t move as fast!

I so love old maps!

Bullseye over the same region hit often of late.

My friend Rush (not that Rush) mentioned last night “hurricane highways” concept and indeed there are certain highways hurricanes seem to travel more than other roads not taken. South Florida, through the Florida Keys into GOM and often a heavy hitting hurricane in Miami makes a second landfall in Louisiana. Why? Because of the High that steered it into the GOM and didn’t allow it to pull North before making landfall. 

Andrew on the left, 1926 Miami Hurricane on the right.

Similar but different.

Propelled into the GOM with a 2nd landfall.

Then there was Betsy.

Poor girl she kept trying to pull North.

But the High kicked back in and ….

…West she went into Florida Keys/SFL!

Then GOM to … Louisana!!

Inland flooding from Hurricane Floyd.

More hurricanes than not approach from the ESE looking as if they want to visit South Beach and then curve gracefully way and take aim at Wilmington, North Carolina! Let’s say Morehead City to the Outer Banks before curving out to sea again. Hurricane Floyd that punched the Carolinas badly, especially filling up all the river basins with epic inland flooding … far inland!

South Florida has been lucky lately.

Many a hurricane has taken a hard right turn.

While that’s awesome in retrospect….

…you can’t rely on that happening this year.

Next we will discuss Texas Hurricane Highways.

I’ll leave that for another day… 

Bottom Line:

Don’t focus on news Storys and click bait.

Focus on Hurricane Preparation.

Or putting aside money to evacuate if you need to…

…or to hunker down with supplies.

Something to think on…

…. Happy May!!

Sweet Tropical Dreams,


If there’s one CD… record I wore out….

…staring at the fireplace burn in LA.

Definitely was this one……

Nuff Said. (BobbiStorm)
