FWIW, Hurricane Alley has also issued their update for January (along with TSR). Most sites seem to be thinking upper teens for # of storms. Had we not hit mid-20's this year, people would be freaking about now. But it's almost anti-climactic to me.

post analyses [Re: LONNY307]

nhc has put up a couple more so far this week, having put up a few last week. not many more to go. new are the reports on stan, tammy, and delta since monday, though none effect any real track or intensity changes. delta's report mentions evidence of hurricane intensity on 27 november, but doesn't say evidence is conclusive enough. still unposted are the reports on emily, franklin, harvey, Rita, vince, beta, and zeta. out of the 30 tropical cyclones last year, that makes the job 80% complete.
we won't find out until april, after some wmo conference, which 2005 names are slated for retirement, and what the replacements will be. it's obvious that Katrina, Rita, and Wilma are going.. and likely Dennis, emily and stan. beta is a longshot.

I thought the Greek names were "nonretirable" (That's not really a word, is it..) because they were just letters of the alphabet - like when storms were called 1,2,3 etc they can't retire "2" ...

OK I could be confused, but I really thought I read that in a discussion... somewhere.

Guess we'll have to wait and see!

shana you're probably right.
was down in southern mississippi last weekend, doing some research data collection... took a lot of pics, too. pretty awful stuff to see. if any turned out right i'll get 'em online somewhere and post a link on another forum.

South Atlantic, again [Re: HanKFranK]
      #64549 - Thu Feb 23 2006 02:39 PM

There's a small feature located near 29S and 40W -- really small and just NW of a larger, upper-level feature -- that is being looked at for tropical cyclone development. The NRL lists it as 90L.invest on their webpage, and it does have the appearance of a depression or weak storm. It's likely nothing more than something interesting to look at, but there's something down there. No phase analyses available at this time, though, and the last QuikSCAT pass was last night about this time showing an open circulation with winds to about 30kt.

You can see it using the IR imagery at, look for GOES-EAST Full Disk.
