The tropical season is nearing it's mid-September peak in a few weeks - and that can't be more clear as we've seen things really heat up in the Atlantic.
Forecasters are currently monitoring Hurricane Earl, which is expected to give the eastern seaboard a pretty good scare as we head into the holiday weekend.
Some data suggests it will skirt right along the coast, while other models still say it will turn away in time, just brushing the Outer Banks.
And of course, there is always the chance it will not turn and make a direct hit.
Behind Earl is Fiona and behind that is Depression #9.
