    Zeta is still over the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico, but is forecast to strengthen to a Cat 1 or 2 hurricane, and then head pretty much straight for New Orleans. That puts each of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida's Panhandle in the storm surge danger zone, an area that has already seen SIX major storms this year. This is beyond unprecedented at this stage and is really worrying both for this year, and beyond. Here are the storms in that region so far:

    Cristobal (Tropical storm)
    Hanna (cat 1 Hurricane)
    Laura (cat 4 Hurricane)
    Marco (Tropical storm)
    Sally (cat 2 Hurricane)
    Beta (Tropical storm)
    Delta (cat 2 Hurricane)

    Back in early May the national hurricane centre said we should expect "13-19 named storms, of which 6-10 could be hurricanes. Zeta is the 27th named storm, and it will be the 10th hurricane. If there's such a thing as hurricane fatigue, we've got it

    Meanwhile, Central Florida weather has continued hot, humid but relatively dry. We've had barely 3ins of rain this month (would normally expect around 4) but 22 days that have been above average for temp. The humidity remains high, too, which is also against the norm for this time of year. We have been a promised a cold front for this weekend, though, which should start to bring temps back to the seasonal average, which is around 82F/27C, and we could even see things dropping back into the 70s for a few days, which would be extremely welcome!
