Hurricane season starts tomorrow! Here's a look at the names of tropical cyclones for 2016.
Even though hurricane season starts tomorrow, we have already seen two named tropical cyclones. Tropical storm Bonnie made landfall Sunday morning, in South Carolina and hurricane Alex hit the Azores in January. Yes, January. Below I have plotted the tracks of the cyclones. I will update this map every time we have a new tropical cyclone this season.
You can find this map on the newly updated Tropics page. On that page you will also find my forecast for the hurricane season, current conditions on any type of tropical cyclone in the Atlantic, and any types of graphics such as cones, that I make for hurricane season.
Speaking of my hurricane season forecast, here's a look at the final one. This forecast includes, hurricane Alex and tropical storm Bonnie.
As we head into the weekend, some type of tropical cyclone could develop in the western Caribbean Sea or near the Yucatan Passage. After that it should head near Florida. However, we likely won't be dealing with anything too serious, as conditions aren't great this time of year. If a tropical storm were to develop, its name would be Colin.
Here in the NYC area, weather looks quite tranquil, with a cool down coming around the 8th. Our area will likely stay in "abnormally dry" conditions on the drought monitor.
