This afternoon the NHC announced the formation of Tropical Storm Zeta. Amazingly enough, it looks as though the first day of 2006 will start with a Tropical Storm already in the Eastern Atlantic ocean. With all of this warm weather we are having in the South, it doesn't give me much hope that SST's will be lowering much in the Gulf of Mexico for 2006. Another explosive year of Hurricane activity could start early again. Learn the lessons of 2005 and be prepared.
