Groundhog Day: from weather expert Jim Lushine:

Two of South Florida's more unusual weather events took place on Feb. 2, Groundhog Day.

In 1998, the costliest tornado outbreak in the region's history occurred when several strong twisters caused more than $200 million in damage.

In 1952, the only known tropical storm ever to form in the Atlantic Ocean in February hit South Florida. The unnamed system, with maximum winds of about 50 mph, emerged in the northwest Caribbean, crossed South Florida and moved northeast into the Atlantic. Only minor damage was reported here.

Could another hurricane form in February? It's possible but highly unlikely. The wind shear is usually much too strong.
