A hurricane in November in Florida is something unusual

November is the last month of hurricane season, and tropical activity generally begins to wane. However, the 2022 hurricane season has been pushed back and all of the storms impacting the Atlantic this year formed after August.

Florida has been hit by tropical systems in November nine times in the past 170 years, a 5% chance in any given year.

Seven of those nine are from the Western Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico. That makes this week’s developing system, if it converges and hits Florida, extremely rare.

For now, the forecast indicates that rain will increase in frequency and intensity as we approach the middle of the week. It is increasingly windy, dangerous sea conditions and a high risk of rip currents.

According to an analysis by meteorologist John Morales, winds and tides combined with a full moon and rising sea levels to create significant coastal flooding make climate change worse. Communities near Fort Lauderdale, Miami Beach, Miami Shores, Biscayne Boulevard, Edgewater, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables and the Florida Keys should prepare for flooding.
