PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WMBB) — News 13’s First Alert Storm Team sat down to discuss the potential for Gulf development over the next week, in our weekly weather discussion show: Tropic Topics.

Introduction to the weather team that is going to be with you all season long. This season is expected to produce another active season. The forecast is for an above-average number of storms but is not expected to be as active as last year. We go through what the expected number of storms are as well as what June and July typically look like from a storm formation and track perspective.

While this year might end up being an active one we know all too well that the number of storms really doesn’t matter. It only takes one storm to make an impact. Make sure to join the Fist Alert Storm Team all year as we break down week to week what is going on.
