WEATHER NEWS: What to know about Tropical Depression 9, the storm threat to Florida
Hurricane season is picking up. September, traditionally the busiest month of the season, has seen four hurricanes this year after little to no activity in previous months.
Meteorologists have their eye on a fledgling system stirring in the abnormally warm waters of the Caribbean, currently known as Tropical Depression 9. The depression formed early Friday, and forecasters project that it will intensify into a tropical storm Saturday, earning the name Ian. It is predicted to become a hurricane by Monday and threaten Florida by Wednesday.
