A Check of the Global Tropics

By: MAweatherboy1, 9:21 PM GMT on July 09, 2014

Good evening. We are now close to a third of the way through July, and that means we are moving closer to the climatological peak of the Atlantic hurricane season. The basin is currently quiet, as is the neighboring East Pacific since the somewhat surprising dissipation of Fausto earlier today, so I think now is a good time to take a look at the bigger picture on where we stand globally for tropical cyclone activity in 2014, and where we are heading in the next fe...

Tropical Depression 3-E Forms

By: MAweatherboy1, 10:41 PM GMT on June 09, 2014

Good evening. For the third time this year, we are tracking a tropical cyclone in the East Pacific basin. The Atlantic is currently quiet with no development expected for the next week or so, at least. Our newest system in the East Pacific is Tropical Depression 3-E, which has formed from an area of low pressure, invest 94E, that has been tracked for the past few days. I will format this blog in the same new format that I used for my previous entry. Enjoy!

TD 1-E Forms; Likely to Strengthen But No Threat to Land

By: MAweatherboy1, 11:38 PM GMT on May 22, 2014

Good evening to everyone. We are now one week into the official Eastern Pacific hurricane season, and predictions are for an active season in this basin as El Nino develops. After remaining unorganized for the past few days, the season's third East Pacific invest, 92E, organized significantly today, developing a closed circulation as observed by scatterometer data as well as a clearly vigorous twist in visible satellite loops. It is a new season, so I am going to...

Strengthening Ita a Threat to Australia

By: MAweatherboy1, 1:37 AM GMT on April 08, 2014

Good evening. If you have not already done so, I recommend reading over my previous blog entry, which contains my complete seasonal forecast for the 2014 North Atlantic Hurricane Season. Tonight, however, I'm shifting gears to look at a completely different part of the world, the southeast Pacific Ocean. There, Tropical Storm Ita is intensifying tonight. Ita has already left significant devastation in the Solomon Islands, where river flooding from heavy rains fr...

2014 Atlantic Hurricane Season Forecast

By: MAweatherboy1, 11:19 PM GMT on March 31, 2014

With March nearly behind us, and the seemingly endless winter of 2013-2014 slowly releasing its grip on the country, we are now heading deeper into spring and that means closer to another Atlantic hurricane season. With the official start of the season now just two months away, I think it is time for me to release my thoughts on how the 2014 season will go. As I've said in the past, I'm not a big fan of seasonal forecasts, but I do them anyways because how can you...
