in Florida News & Events


ORLANDO, Fla. – The peak of hurricane season has passed, but the tropics remain active, although there’s no immediate threat to Florida.

As of Monday morning, Humberto is a Category 1 hurricane, with winds up to 85 mph. Humberto is moving northeast near 5 mph. A turn toward the east-northeast is expected later in the day.

“This hurricane continues to move away from the United States at 3 mph,” News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said. “It will likely slam into Bermuda sometime in the next couple of days.”

Meanwhile, disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the northwestern Gulf of Mexico are associated with an upper-level low.
