Tracking Tropical Storm Fiona as it moves west towards the Caribbean

Tropical Storm Fiona formed late Wednesday evening, becoming the sixth named storm of the 2022 Atlantic Hurricane Season.

According to tropical meteorologist researcher Philip Klotzbach, the most recent Atlantic Hurricane Season to have six or less named storms by September 14 is 2014, which only had 5 names.

As of Thursday morning, Tropical Storm Fiona is moving west towards the Leeward Islands in the Caribbean. Fiona is packing maximum sustained winds of 50 mph. Fiona is moving west at 13 mph.

Tropical Storm Fiona is forecast to move northwest over Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic through the next five days. It is too soon to know for certain if Fiona will impact the U.S. mainland.

Hurricane Hunter aircraft will continue to deploy dropsondes into the storm to monitor in-storm conditions as well as provide high resolution data for tropical forecast models.

Continue to monitor forecast updates this weekend regarding Fiona’s potential path.
