Welcome to WeatherTiger's Hurricane Watch! I’m Dr. Ryan Truchelut, a hurricane forecaster and researcher at WeatherTiger. I’ve been forecasting Florida’s hurricane threats professionally for 20 years and have been a hurricane analyst for the USA Today Network for the last eight years.

The Hurricane Watch is a newsletter focused on keeping you safe from hurricanes and helping you better understand the science of what makes these ferocious storms tick. I pay special attention to hurricane threats to Florida, but carefully monitor the whole U.S. coast and Atlantic Ocean.

Stay ahead of the storm.
