Hurricane Ian made landfall in Southwest Florida as a CAT 4 with 150 mph winds in late September 2022. Ian was a CAT 5 with 160 mph winds a few hours prior to landfall. This storm was the third costliest U.S. hurricane with $113 billion in damages, produced a surge of 15.0 feet above the sand, and killed 149 people in Florida, most who were over the age of 60. Some of the fatalities were from storm surge, historic river flooding, and indirect causes like electrocution, cardiovascular events, and panic when trying to leave the barrier island as the surge was overtopping the island. 

After the discussion of Hurricane Ian, we'll look at changes in weather products and services and the forecast for the 2023 hurricane season.


Daniel Noah has been a meteorologist with the National Weather Service (NWS) for 30 years. He serves as the principal interface between the local Forecast Office and the users of NWS products and services. Dan leads the effort to ensure their evaluation, adjustment, and improvement.
