All Eyes on the Tropics

It’s been over two months since the Atlantic hurricane season

Welcome to Hurricane Season 2010

And June is upon us again, and for those of us who track hurricanes this means one thing… TRACKING TIME! The 1st June marks the official opening of the Atlantic hurricane season, and while tropical cyclonic storms are present in various areas of the world throughout the year, the Atlantic storms are the ones with the most media attention, as these are the storms that impact the United States. So far this year looks to be a rough ride for the US coastlines with forecasts predicting an above average season, which is easy to agree with given the high SST values in the waters of the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico.

There has already been 1 invest this week after the remnants of the Eastern Pacific storm Agatha moved over Central America and into the Caribbean. Though conditions were too hostile for tropical depression development in the Caribbean. Other than that the models aren’t showing anything just yet, but storms can appear out of nowhere.

The 2010 storm names are as follows:

  • Alex
  • Bonnie
  • Colin
  • Danielle
  • Earl
  • Fiona
  • Gaston
  • Hermine
  • Igor
  • Julia
  • Karl
  • Lisa
  • Matthew
  • Nicole
  • Otto
  • Paula
  • Richard
  • Shary
  • Tomas
  • Virginie
  • Walter

All the meanwhile, an extremely strong storm has been present in the Arabian Sea over the past few days, Severe Tropical Cyclone Phet, which now looks to make a rare landfall in Oman as a very strong tropical cyclone. Though due to the dry air present on the coastal areas of the Arabian Sea, Phet is likely to weaken quite a bit before landfall.
