Tropical Storm Humberto Drenching the Cape Verde Islands

By: Dr. Jeff Masters, 2:11 PM GMT on September 09, 2013

Tropical Storm Humberto, the eighth named storm of the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season, is here. Humberto has formed unusually far to the east, between the coast of Africa and the Cape Verde Islands. Tropical Storm Warnings are flying in the southern Cape Verde Islands, and Humberto's rain bands have already arrived in capital city of Praia, where 1.46" of rain has fallen, with sustained winds as high as 26 mph. Humberto's west to west-northwest motion at 12 mph will keep the storm just south and west of the islands through Tuesday, but this path will be close enough to bring potentially dangerous rainfall amounts of 3 - 6 inches to the southern islands. Satellite loops show that Humberto is well-organized with plenty of spin and a growing amount of heavy thunderstorms. The models are bullish of developing Humberto into a hurricane just west of the Cape Verde Islands by Wednesday. If Humberto reaches hurricane strength before 8 am EDT on Wednesday, 2013 will avoid setting the record for the latest formation date of the Atlantic's first hurricane, dating back the beginning of the aircraft reconnaissance era in 1944. Humberto is expected to take a sharp northwards turn later this week, which will carry the storm into a region of ocean where no land areas would likely be at risk from a strike, with the possible exception of the Azores Islands.

Cape Verde Islands Hurricane History
The Atlantic's most terrifying and destructive hurricanes typically start as tropical waves that move off the coast of Africa and pass near the Cape Verde Islands. This class of storms is referred to as "Cape Verde hurricanes", in reference to their origin. Despite the fact that the Atlantic's most feared type of hurricanes are named after the Cape Verde Islands, these islands rarely receive significant impacts from one of their namesake storms. This is because tropical waves coming off the coast of Africa have very little time to organize into tropical storms before arriving at the Cape Verde Islands, which lie just 350 miles west of the African coast. According to EM-DAT, the International Disaster Database, there have been only two deadly tropical cyclones in Cape Verde history. The deadliest was Tropical Storm Fran of 1984, which brushed the southwestern islands on September 16 as a tropical storm with 50 mph winds. Fran brought sustained winds of 35 mph and torrential rains to the islands. The rains triggered flash flooding that killed 29 - 31 people and caused damages of almost $3 million (1984 dollars.) The other deadly named storm was Tropical Storm Beryl of 1982, which passed about 30 miles south of the southwestern islands on August 29, with 45 mph winds. The storm's heavy rains killed three people on Brava Island, injured 122, and caused $3 million in damage.

The most recent named storm to affect the islands was Hurricane Julia of 2010, which was the easternmost Category 4 hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic. Julia passed about 50 miles south of Sao Filipe in the southern Cape Verde Islands as a tropical storm with 45 mph winds, bringing wind gusts of 30 mph to the islands and some minor flooding.


Figure 2. Track of Tropical Storm Fran of 1984, which brushed the southwestern Cape Verde Islands on September 16 as a tropical storm with 50 mph winds. Torrential rains from Fran killed 29 - 31 people in the Cape Verde Islands, making it the deadliest storm in their history.

Ex-Gabrielle
The remnants of Gabrielle (now being called Invest 92L) are generating heavy thunderstorms about 500 miles south-southwest of Bermuda, as seen on satellite loops. High wind shear of 25 knots is inhibiting development, and wind shear is expected to stay high for the next three days. The disturbance is headed to the north-northeast to northeast at 10 mph, and is expected to pass several hundred miles east of Bermuda Tuesday through Wednesday. Since strong westerly winds are keeping most of ex-Gabrielle's heavy thunderstorms displaced to the east, the bulk of this activity should miss Bermuda. NHC put ex-Gabrielle's 2-day and 5-day odds of development at 20% in their 8 am EDT Monday Tropical Weather Outlook.

Reader Comments

THe shear doesn't seem to be a problem for Gabrielle despite the anticyclone having apparently moved out from on top of her. No signs of any decoupling or any meaningful effects on convection over the center yet, and the shear is slowly abating anyway. Clouds are getting nice and flat on top of Gabrielle, too. Convergence and divergence are good as well, so I would expect the convection to continue for quite some time. Also, the only thing left for Gabrielle is to get a strong 500mb vorticity. It's been strengthening but it's not quite there yet. The 700mb and 850mb vorticities are plenty strong enough and stacked though.

Morning Liz =)

Ha!, not according to rita.....Lovely Rita, meter maid.


AW Poor Rita is so desperate for rain He has given up on the idea of ever getting some :)
Notice ULL moving west towards Florida and probably into the GOM, just in time to screw up any chance for major rain event for TX, and drive whatever into MX. It happens every time, in fact going on 5 years now. Throwing all models out the window
Go Gabby go! And Humberto, I am rooting for you to grow into the hurricane you want to become! And since today is the official peak of hurricane season, and my daughter's birthday, it is only fitting that we get our first hurricane sometime today.
Sure has been interesting this season that storms "die off" and yet they somehow regenerate! I don't write them off until the last little bit of latent energy or any spin left of the system is gone out to sea or finally over land. As long as there is some bit of energy or spin, the system has a chance (however slim) to fire back up.
This has been one weird, interesting and fun season trying to predict (GUESS) what is going to happen.
We are half-way done...so let's sit back and enjoy the ride for the other half. No telling what Mother Nature has in store!
BRING IT ON!
maybe a landfall tropical storm!!!
Humberto has at least a partial eye wall currently. It could easily develop into a hurricane today.

Believe that recon will find a stronger Gabrielle when they investigate this afternoon. In my opinion, it's not totally out of the realm of possibilities for Gabrielle to attain minimal hurricane status before shear increases in a couple of days. It's heading over waters that have been well above normal the majority of this season.

He writes the same silly complaint (about 3,000 versions of it so far) and he just needs to move on to a new topic.
So, let's have fun with Humberto, Gabby and (HOPEFULLY) abundant rain for the parched, dry Texas and the Southwest.

I don't know what to say. Still the same story....
Right now the only model showing a landfall of any potential cyclone in the BOC north of Tampico is the GFS.



The ensemble spread is also pretty strung out along the coast:



Even the overenthusiastic GEM isn't that excited.



My guess is that the GFS hiccuped this morning, the 12z model run isn't for a few hours, so I suppose it's time to start doing things today.

If you do a 5 year drought map we're basically in the deep red, as Houston is over 50" behind rainfall since Ike in 08'. The improvement is a smokescreen.

That looks like an slot of dry air getting drawn into the core of the circulation. This could hinder the next forecast advisory of going to a hurricane. Still in contention for breaking the latest hurricane record.

You'd also strip the top soil from here to El Paso.

I was hoping this year would be a lot like last year, lots of tropical storms, coupled with the good westward tracks we expected and a weaker subtropical ridge but that hasn't panned out just yet.

We've still got another half of the season to go and with the return of the autumn troughs we might just get a few rainmakers.
maybe a hurricane soon!!

He's not wrong. Even though Isidore failed to become a Category 4, it was predicted to become one and make landfall at that strength in Louisiana before it made a track change into the Yucatan and weakened. Lili did become a Category 4, but weakened before landfall in Louisiana. Both were retired.

Well I was waiting for the update from Dr. JM, but . . .

G'morning from Central OK,

Things still roasty toasty here, thanks to that High meandering around the central portion of the US.



As mentioned more often by those in Texas, its been a while without appreciable rain



Short term forecast brings us into next week before any decent chance of rain is forecast.

Hopefully the second half of September will be wet enough to stifle any possible wildfire threat for this winter.

Gabrielle has resurrected herself, in time to plague Bermuda for the next 36-48 hours. And Humberto is churning away far to the west looking as if it'll beat the "latest hurricane to form" by 12 hours.

After that, or attention will shift to the BOC, to see if the one reliable region to form storms this year does it again.

Hope all are having a good day.

* until 1245 am MDT

* at 945 PM MDT... local law enforcement reported a continuation of flash flooding in Boulder County... with numerous Road closures and stalled vehicles due to flooding. Up to 3.5 inches of rain has already fallen in southeast Boulder... with widespread rainfall of 1.5 to 2.5 inches over the rest of the warned area. Another one to as much as 2 inches of rain can be expected in some locations before decreasing.
