Atlantic Hurricane Season Off To Early Start

The 2009 Atlantic Hurricane Season will officially begin this coming Monday, June 1.

However, forecasters have a little pre-season action on their hands with Tropical Depression 1 making waves in the open Atlantic.

It will not be a threat to anyone except possibly some ships, but hopefully they will just steer around it.

The storm is moving into colder waters about 300 miles southeast of Nantucket, Massachusettes.

Forecasters are calling for a near-normal hurricane season, so perhaps Tropical Depression 1 just has perfect timing to remind us it is "that time of the year" again -- and to make coastal residents start refreshing their hurricane action plans.
