Hurricane season peaks, Florida eyes Caribbean storms

Prepare, don’t panic.

Florida storm watchers are urging residents to keep an eye on weather reports over the weekend as a tropical wave winding through the Caribbean begins to pick up steam.

“Anyone living on the Gulf Coast should pay attention to forecasting this tropical disturbance,” Fox Weather meteorologist Geoff Bansen told The Post on Thursday.

Bansen said it is too early to predict the intensity and course of the system.

The wave is expected to develop into a tropical storm over the weekend and possibly develop into a hurricane next week.

Pablo Santos, chief meteorologist with the National Weather Service of Miami, warned Sunshine Staters to stay sober.

“We insist on preparation,” he said. “It’s too early to say what will happen.”

Florida has been spared a hurricane so far this season, and residents are crossing their fingers that the tropical wave isn’t dealing an unwelcome blow to the Gulf Coast.

Meteorologists are warning Florida residents to stay vigilant for a tropical wave sweeping through the Caribbean.

Santos said it is a good time for Floridians to rethink their hurricane preparedness plans and remain vigilant.

If the system develops and affects Florida, meteorologists said the center of gravity will be felt early next week.
