Tropical Storm Elsa Could Reach Florida By Next Week

Are you headed to Walt Disney World this weekend, into early next week? If so, you’ll want to take note that Tropical Storm Elsa has formed and looks like it could reach Florida by next week. While a rainy day at Disney is still better than a sunny day at the office, you’ll want to keep close watch as Elsa figures out where it is headed. And yes, we’re sure all those Disney fans out there noticed… the storm has been named Elsa!

As shared by OrlandoSentinel: “The National Hurricane Center officially named Tropical Storm Elsa Thursday morning, and showed the fifth named storm of the season could possibly take aim at Florida by next week. The Hurricane Center said it’s too early to tell if the Elsa will impact Florida, although the cone does show parts of the state within Elsa’s five-day path. However, there is significant uncertainty in the track forecast between the weekend and Tuesday, the NHC said. Discrepancies in the track have made meteorologists’ confidence in the projection “lower than usual,” the NHC said.”

While we hope Tropical Storm Elsa doesn’t ruin your plans to visit Walt Disney World, keep watch as even the National Hurricane Center has noted this is a hard one to track. Stay safe, Disney fans!

About Mike/ Jamie

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
