Welcome 2014 hurricane season. I'm sure there are some or several out there who doesn't want this to come either due to their ground zero location or travel disruptions.
The season comes in either way anyway.
Hello June 1st, we are half way into 2014.
The first tropical weather outlook known to us as "TWO" was issued at 2 AM and this time it described an area of disturbed weather in the Gulf of Mexico associated with the Pacific Invest 93E.
TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
800 AM EDT SUN JUN 1 2014
For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
An elongated and nearly stationary area of low pressure located over the Bay of Campeche extends northeastward into the south-central Gulf of Mexico. Although shower activity is currently disorganized, some slow development of this disturbance is possible this week as environmental conditions become marginally conducive.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent
Today marks the first day of the Atlantic hurricane season, which will run until November 30. Long-term averages for the number of named storms, hurricanes, and major hurricanes are 12, 6, and 3, respectively.
Keep in mind we are in the hurricane season now, it only takes one to make it be a bad season mo matter if it's an El Niño year. Look what happened in 1992 with Andrew. Even busy seasons are more feared but you may get something like 2010 with nothing really worth talking about.
If for any reason the Galveston area, New Orleans area, Miami-Fl Keys area, Charleston-Wilmington area or the northeast are under a threat for major hurricane hit please don't take any chances on surviving the storm, just evacuate without being told to.
I live in the Charleston-Wilmington area, hurricanes can make it up and potentially devastate this area if the atmospheric patterns favor it.
In 1959, Hurricane Hazel made landfall as a violent category 4 major hurricane east of Myrtle Beach, SC.
The 1959 season only generated 11 named storms.
Be prepared and let's have fun tracking.
