Hello all. It's been about two months since I've posted a blog, as I have been busily working through my first semester of college here at Plymouth State University in Plymouth, New Hampshire. The tropics are active this evening, with Gonzalo lashing Bermuda, Ana strengthening near Hawaii and a new tropical depression in the East Pacific. This activity is all due in large part to a strong MJO pulse that has moved from the central Pacific and into the Atlantic, sp...

Good morning. My topic today goes a bit outside of the usual individual storm forecasting I do here whenever I feel the urge to. It is now mid-August, and we are approaching the climatological peak of the 2014 North Atlantic hurricane season. We have so far had just two storms, Arthur and Bertha, both of which also became hurricanes, with Arthur by far the more impressive of the two, a strong early season Category 2 storm. However, we have been mired in a slow p...

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...

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!

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...
