One Year Ago - Hurricane Dennis Struck Florida

On this date last year, Hurricane Dennis struck Florida.

Dennis was the earliest forming category 4 storm in the Caribbean. The hurricane, which weakened to a category 3 before it made landfall with 120 mile-an-hour winds near Navarre Beach in the Panhandle, spawned 10 tornadoes.

Meanwhile, tropical waves continue to form in the Eastern Carribean only to be knocked down by upper level wind shear. Accuweather is saying that the shear is beginning to disapate and surface pressures are lowering which could allow this and future waves to better organize. We'll be watching!
