Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

Meanwhile, Hurricane Ignacio continues on a course that may take it just north of Hawaii, and powerful Hurricane Jimena is aiming for Category 5 strength in the Northeast Pacific.

So Florida remains on alert for an impactful system, but the odds of a strengthening hurricane hitting the state are diminished.

El Nino forcing ramps up by fall

Zachary Labe, August 20, 2015

Northeast Weather Analyst
