With the relatively docile weather pattern that north Florida has been experiencing lately, most folks probably don't realize that hurricane season is right around the corner. That's right, the official start of hurricane season is June 1, which is exactly one week away. NOAA is predicting 21 named storms with 10 hurricanes for the coming season.
