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 over 17 years and have been a hurricane analyst for the USA Today Network for the last six years.

The Hurricane Watch is a newsletter focused on keeping you and your family safe from hurricanes, plus 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.

Paid subscribers will receive a daily tropical forecast briefing issued each weekday from June 1-October 31, as well as all of our weekly long-form analysis columns, released each Wednesday.
