The FOX 35 Storm Team is tracking Tropical Storm Ian in the Southern Caribbean. Our chances of rain will increase throughout the week as the storm moves closer. Impacts can be felt as early as Tuesday.


Tropical Storm Ian is moving across the Western Caribbean Sea. Ian is expected to rapidly intensify to a Cat. 1 hurricane later Sunday, or early Monday morning. Ian is projected to become a major hurricane by midweek and track across Southwestern portions of Cuba. 

Ian will then move into the Eastern portions of the Gulf of Mexico, where it will gain strength in the warm water. There Ian is forecast to become a major hurricane before weakening to a Cat 1 and moving into the panhandle of Florida. 

Now is a good time to prepare for what is to come. Depend on the FOX 35 Storm Team for the latest this weekend and beyond!
