Hurricane Maria moves north; Lee still far from land

6 ways this hurricane season is different

A new front moving in after Thursday could kick Maria quickly out to sea, minimizing any impacts.

While the past month has been devastating, the 2017 season doesn't end until November 30 and warm ocean temperatures suggest there are more storms to come, said Phil Klotzbach, lead author of the Colorado State University seasonal hurricane forecast.

Lee is expected to stay far out in the Atlantic through the next five days and not pose a threat to land. Click through to get a fuller picture of how intense this season has been.

Maria is not the only hurricane in the Atlantic as of Sunday afternoon. Eight to 10 foot waves would also be possible along the coast as a result of Maria along with.5 to 3 inches of rain, wind gusts between 40 and 74 miles per hour and unsafe rip currents.

The WMBF First Alert Weather App has a handy tropical tracker feature to keep an eye on any storms at sea, as well as regular video updates from our meteorologists.

And forecasters are warning that it is "increasingly likely" it could make landfall along some parts of the USA coast. The storm then weakened into a remnant low 2 days later.

"We know a little more today than we did yesterday", Rossello said. Experts estimate the storm could cost around $100 billion.

Hurricane season does not officially end until November 30, and more tropical concerns are expected. It made landfall in Florida on September 10 as a Category 4. At least six people were killed in Puerto Rico, said Héctor M. Pesquera, the island's public safety director. Irma caused billions of dollars of damage in the Caribbean, and could cost the United States $50 billion. Lee will circle itself over the next few days before moving north and weakening late next week. Katia died down to a tropical depression the next day as it interacted with Mexico's mountainous terrain.

"The worst case would be strong winds and heavy rain".

Tropical Storm Lee regenerated on Friday after falling apart early this week.

Maria's economic cost to Puerto Rico may increase if the islands sees an exodus of residents fearful that water and power could be out for months, said Chuck Watson, of Enki Research. Hurricane Maria lashed the Turks and Caicos islands over the weekend after killing at least 32 in Puerto Rico and Dominica.
