Living in southeast Florida, I keep my eye on the hurricane forecast for more than just cruising. The primary site is the National Hurricane Center - http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/
. Straight from the horse's mouth so to speak.
Next, I follow Crown Weather Tropical Weather Page - http://www.crownweather.com/?page_id=29
. They pull together information from multiple sources including the National Hurricane Center.
Southeast Florida Water Management district has a page showing the hurricane model tracks - http://my.sfwmd.gov/portal/page?_pag..._schema=PORTAL
. Nothing going on there now (thank goodness).
If I have a cruise planned (late September), I will check the cruise line web site for itinerary changes. I know they will steer clear of the storms, but it may involve changes from what we were expecting. The only problems are when the storm is due to Florida when we are sailing or returning. Well, make that sailing. If it is due to hit when we are scheduled to return, we might get an extra day or two on the ship.
