From The Weather Center:
WeatherBrains 101: It’s only a little more than a week to the start of the 2016 hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin. So many weather enthusiasts will be watching the official National Hurricane Center forecasts for any storms that form. And that forecast has a cone that widens in time. So what is that cone and what does it mean?
