CENTRAL FLORIDA - Yep, it’s still hurricane season.
The National Hurricane Center said it’s tracking a disturbance over the Leeward Islands. However, the storm has become much less organized.
On Monday, forecasters said the storm had a 90 percent chance of forming over the next several days. By Tuesday, those chances had dropped to only 30 percent. If it forms, the storm would be named Patty, the 16th named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season.

“A strong tropical wave in the Central Atlantic is developing. It could become Patty over the next day or so,” said Channel 9 certified meteorologist Brian Shields. “However, with our major front sliding in, it should keep whatever tries to develop away from the East Coast.”
The last day of the Atlantic hurricane season is Friday, Nov. 30.
