Tropical Storm Fay Forms off Carolina Coast

Posted: 08:25 AM 08 July 2020 | | Add Comment

98L is about to exit the coast of South Carloina, and move into the Atlantic, where it now has a 70% chance to develop into a depression or storm. Recon is tentatively scheduled to fly out late this afternoon to check it out.

Those in the Mid Atlantic and Northeast states will want to watch it, as the tiny system could bring surprises along the coast.

Cristobal Back in Gulf, Warnings up for Parts of Gulf Coast

Posted: 05:20 PM 05 June 2020 | | Add Comment

10AM Update 6 June 2020

Cirstobal is now a 50mph Tropical Storm in the Central Gulf, it is likely to continue to slowly gain strength, rain from the outer bands is already reaching parts of the coast, and the eastern part is bringing rain to much of Florida today.



Original Update
Tropical Storm Warnings are now up for parts of the Northern Gulf coast from Morgan City, LA to the Okaloosa/Walton county line in Florida.

The center of Cristobal has moved into the Gulf of Mexico to the north of the Yucatan Peninsula. An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the storm in a few hours, which should provide a good estimate of Cristobal's strength.

Storm Surge Warnings have been issued for areas outside the Hurricane and Storm Damage Risk Reduction System from the mouth of the Mississippi River to Ocean Springs Mississippi, including Lake Borgne.

The First Day of the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season Begins with a New TD

Posted: 12:03 AM 01 June 2020 | | Add Comment

12:00 PM EDT 3 June 2020 Update
Cristobal made landfall this morning in the state of Campeche just to the west of Ciudad del Carmen and movement continues to be excruciatingly slow, resulting in life-threatening flooding on top of life-threatening flooding, with all-new flooding in locations that are now waterlogged.

This is a very dangerous tropical cyclone. Interests in Central America and portions of S/E Mexico should continue to take significant actions to protect life and property.

From NHC:
Quote:

Damaging and deadly flooding has already occurred in portions of Mexico and Central America. Cristobal is expected to produce additional extreme rainfall amounts through the end of the week. The heaviest additional rainfall is expected over far southern Mexico and portions of the Yucatan Peninsula, while also extending along the Pacific coast from Chiapas to Guatemala and El Salvador. This rainfall could cause widespread life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.





4:30 PM 1 June 2020 Update
Invest 93L has continued to develop throughout the day, despite having spent much of the past two days fully over land, and has become a tropical cyclone, TD3, remarkably already the third tropical cyclone of the stunningly fast start to the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season.

It appears likely that TD3 will become Tropical Storm Cristobal within the next 24 hours, setting a new record. The current record earliest formation of a third named storm in the Atlantic occurred on June 5, 2016, when Tropical Storm Colin upgraded.
-Ciel


Original Entry
Today marks the first day of the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane season, which has already had TWO named Tropical storms, Tropical Storm Arthur, that formed east of Florida but stayed offshore, closest point to land was in the outer banks. And Tropical Storm Bertha, which formed quickly and made landfall in South Carolina causing some impacts along there, and in the outer banks, as well as a freak training rain system formed by a tail outer band in the Miami area causing major flash flooding.

Last year was most memorable for Hurricane Dorian, which sat over the Northern Bahamas for 24 hours devastating the area and then clipped over the North Carolina Outerbanks.

Once again we’ll be watching out in the Atlantic, and Hawaii if any storms threaten there.

The first regular outlook starts at 2AM on June 1st. And there's already something to track:

Invest 93L, which is the the remnants of Eastern Pacific Tropical Storm Amanda.

This system may move from over Guatemala into the Gulf of Mexico. In fact it has a 60% chance to develop over the next 5 days. Although it may stall or move into Mexico, but there is some chance that it may move further north,

So folks along the Gulf coast from coastal Texas to Louisiana should at least keep up with what's going on here, particularly for Sunday/Monday of NEXT week.

The names for 2020 are the following:
Arthur Hanna Omar
Bertha Isaias Paulette
Cristobal Josephine Rene
Dolly Kyle
Sally
Edouard Laura
Teddy
Fay Marco Vicky
Gonzalo Nana Wilfred

8:30 AM 27 May 2020 Update
Tropical Storm Bertha Forms offshore of south Carolina.

Tropical Storm Warnings issued for parts of South Carolina. Short lived, and will make landfall later today

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for the coast of South Carolina from Edisto Beach to South Santee River.

Original Update

A tropical depression or storm is likely to form just offshore of South Carolina today, before making landfall. Which will have a windy/rainy day. It is not expected to develop more than a minimal tropical storm.

The Preseason - TD1

Posted: 01:05 PM 12 May 2020 | 4 Comments | Add Comment | Newest: 07:47 AM 27-May EDT

Tropical Depression One has formed northeast of the Bahamas, and tropical storm watches are now up from Surf City to Duck in North Carolina.



It's mid may, and although it is the official start of hurricane season in the East Pacific (may 15th) sometimes we get preseason systems in May in the Atlantic (which starts on June 1st).

A special tropical weather outlook was issued for a system that may begin forming late this week northeast of the Bahamas. Although it isn't expected to directly affect land areas, those in Bermuda may want to keep watch on it.
