I believe is was a tropical depression called Albert.....is it normal for these kinds of storms to develop at this time of year and GO SOUTH?!
I've only surfed for the last year, but I've lived in FLA all my life and I'm a disaster relief worker.....I've been watching storms for a long time and can't recall one heading south like that. Is my recall bad or is this water temp issues? Mr. Forecaster, please shine some light on the subject.

not normal.. There has only been 18 named storms since record keeping began (1880'ish, i forget the exact year).
When they do develop super early they usually develop off the Florida coast or in the Gulf.
Alberto is gone now, so its not going anywhere... And, it really didn't move a whole lot during its short lifespan.

I stoked but also worried about the weather pattern....it's not normal.
This is crazy, though, how early they are forming....usually we don't see any named storms until August or September. Keep your fingers crossed, maybe summer won't be flat this year!
