I love tracking hurricanes. I did it for the whole 2012 season. And i'll do it for many more. But now I have a blog to share it with you!

I'm psyched because this is the first Eastern Pacific invest. An invest is a small tropical disturbance. It's called an invest because you need to invest time looking at it. the numbers 90-99 are used for each invest so: invest 1= 90 invest 2= 91, then it recycles after it gets to 99 back to 90. In the Atlantic it's called invest 90A I think. If we follow the same pattern as last year, we might have a tropical depression by late May to early June in the Atlantic. Here are the names for the 2013 Atlantic Hurricane Season.
Don't forget that if we run out of names we use the Greek Alphabet. i.e. Alpha, Beta, Zeta
