The WPTV First Alert Weather meteorologists will be visiting each of the five counties in the viewing area (Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee) to help keep you informed as another hurricane season approaches, as well as welcome more WPTV First Alert Weather Spotters into the fold.

Hurricane season runs from June 1 to Nov. 30.
