Slowest start since at least 2004.

With no current area's of interest, 2019 has had the slowest start since at least 2004 when Hurricane Charlie was classified on August 9th, 2004.

Assuming nothing forms by the 9th, we would need to reach back all the way to 2001 when the "C" storm formed on the 15th of August.

Re: Slowest start since at least 2004.

Models show waves coming off Africa the around the 8th and 17th with decent vort but they both seem to wash out. Dry air and and strong easterlies seem to sap their energy... keep watching though!

Saw that. That is the only "hope" for beating 2004 that I can see. It looks pretty impressive about to come off of Africa at the moment.

Edit: W00t, post #100,000 (1st post would have been 00001,making this (100001)the 100,000th.

The Atlantic is a little slow getting the memo. I can't remember when the last time I've seen the basin this empty in mid August was.
