First Named Tropical System Has Formed
The Pacific hurricane season officially starts today and it's already off to an active start. The first named tropical system of the hurricane season has formed in the Pacific Ocean and her name is Aletta. Tropical Storm Aletta as you can see by the picture is up to 45 mph and it not expected to make landfall anywhere.
Chief Meteorologist Wade Hampton from KPLC sent us the details.
From Wade: The first named tropical system of the year has formed in the Pacific Ocean. Tropical Storm Aletta will not impact any land areas at all. Hurricane season starts tomorrow in the Pacific Ocean; but not until June 1st in the Atlantic. Speaking of hurricane season we will have our annual Hurricane Preparedness Expo at the Prien Lake Mall this Saturday from 11 AM until 3 PM.
