The 2010 Atlantic Hurricane Season Ends
      #90096 - Tue Nov 30 2010 08:46 AM

Today, November 30th, is the official end of the Atlantic Hurricane Season. This year was notable because, despite being an extremely active year, there were no hurricane landfalls in the United States.

19 Named storms, 12 hurricanes, and 5 major storms, making it the third busiest on record. Only surpassed by 1933 and 2005.

No major storms approached the deepwater horizon spill, and most were well out to sea.

Only one named tropical storm made landfall in the US as a tropical cyclone, Bonnie, which never got above 40MPH, barely making it a Tropical Storm.

Tropical Depression Two made it into Brownsville, other than that. Nothing.

Earl was the closest hurricane to hit the United States, nearing North Carolina, but staying far enough away, and enough to evacuate parts of the North Carolina outer banks.

Hurricane Igor was extremely damaging to Newfoundland in Canada, mostly from raging flood waters that washed out many areas.

Hurricane Karl became the strongest hurricane ever in the Southwest Gulf/Bay of Campeche.

The areas hardest hit by storms this year were Newfoundland, Mexico (both eastern, and the Yucatan), and Belize. Haiti and St. Lucia also had to deal with Tomas.

The largest reason many of the storms recurved out to sea was the general positioning of the Azores and Bermuda high pressure areas.

A detailed report of 2010 can be found from Phil Klotzbach and Bill Gray.

The 2011 Atlantic hurricane season starts June 1st, and ends November 30th, 2011.

In the Atlantic right now, it remains quiet for Tropical Development to end out the season.

See you next year.

We have 95L in the CATL, nearing windward islands with surprisingly favorable conditions, an anticyclone overhead.
