Multiple Systems Reportedly Forming In the Atlantic!

According to ClickOrlando, there are three named storms that have formed over the Atlantic Ocean. Thankfully, none of these tropical storms seem to be gaining any traction.

At the time of this article’s publication, Tropical Storm Emily poses no threat to make landfall in Central Florida, and is expected to weaken.

Tropical Storm Franklin is closer to the Dominican Republic and may reach Hispaniola in a day or so. Tropical Storm Gert is rapidly weakening and is expected to dissipate soon.

So, Should You Worry About Any Severe Weather?

According to official reports, it doesn’t seem like any of these forming systems will make landfall in Florida, or even “directly impact” the Sunshine State at all.

So, in short: no, these systems should not affect any upcoming trips to Walt Disney World Resort. That being said, this is Florida we’re talking about, where the weather is infamously unpredictable, so be sure to take this news with a grain of salt (or should we say sand?).
