Hurricane Ian may quickly strengthen.

As a tropical storm early on Monday, Hurricane Ian brought persistent downpours and gusts of at least 73 mph.

However, forecasters warn that the storm is building strength swiftly and, if past experience is any indication, may become dangerously intense.

The fast growth of certain storms from relatively moderate tropical storms to Category 3 or higher hurricanes in under 24 hours is becoming increasingly common.

Information on how tropical storms might quickly strengthen due to climate change is provided below.

In the last 50 years, the seas have absorbed more than 90 percent of the extra heat from global warming due to human activities.

That's very important since storms tend to intensify out at sea.
Additionally, they gain up more strength the hotter the water is.
