Single hurricane thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Or it was the same reporter who said we haven't had a splashdown since 1945.

I just looked, there have been numerous TSs into Maine and Canada.

Check out Faith in 66
I'm not finding any tropical systems that went farther north in Quebec and Labrador, as opposed to offshore like Faith, but I didn't search hard.

Could all hinge on the word, or 3

Tropical, subtropical, extratropical

The Canadian Hurricane Center has a lot of archive info but it's difficult to use to answer how far north. I found 2 that track out the northern tip of Maine, but can't make-out the legend - they could be Depressions.

Same for Google. You can't look up TSs records for the furthest north. All you get is Faith.

Add in that it may be my flub in what I heard. That's a problem with TV - nothing to quote verbatim.

Now for some scary shit.

After today,
15 more named storms, 10 more hurricanes, 5 more at cat 3 or better.

"This could be the second most active hurricane season on record."

Wow.

Whether any kind of record or not, still impressive how far north in Quebec Isaias will be a TD. It's been on land ever since the NC-SC border.

Lots can change, but likely Tropical Storm Josephine is currently aimed right at eastern NC. :roll:

I call Fish Storm

Look at the High pressure front about to move in to protect the east coast.

2020 hurricanes
May they all be Fish Storms
(or at least no stalled Bermuda Highs steering them into the Gulf)

TD 13 could be a double hit on Florida. It's a long way out, but ut doesn't look like there's anything to keep it off S.Florida and then on to Pensacola.

Yep:

Then, TD14 is aiming for the Yucatan and Houston:

Opal came off of the Yucatan. There isn't much to keep either of these from changing direction. My problem is 13.

Ran across this today

Shudder to think these things could merge and be a Perfect Storm.

Doesn't look like the timing is quite right, but these are tropical disturbances so who knows?

And, it's 2020.

The timing is pretty close and their cones of possibility do intersect. Idk what happens when TSs interact. Has it happened before?

Tropical Storm Laura
Puerto Rico, again :( . New Orleans again?

Tropical Depression Fourteen
Houston again?

Edit: Ah, many answers. Here's one:
Could 2 hurricanes combine into 1 in the Gulf next week?
It’s called the Fujiwhara Effect, and it's possible.


... A similar occurrence happened in the Pacific Ocean three years ago when Hurricane Hilary and Hurricane Irwin combined. But, there's no record of it happening, specifically, with two hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico.

In fact, there's no record of two hurricanes existing simultaneously in the Gulf of Mexico, although there is precedent for two tropical cyclones at once in that area. Basically, two tropical systems have been in the Gulf together before, but they weren't both at hurricane strength at the same time....

How does it start? For the Fujiwhara Effect to take place, there must be two storms involved. They also have to be within 870 miles of each other.

What happens then? If that happens, the National Weather Service says one of three things happens when the storms come near each other. “When two hurricanes spinning in the same direction pass close enough to each other, they begin an intense dance around their common center,” the NWS website explains.

1: If one hurricane is a lot stronger than the other, the smaller one will orbit it and eventually come crashing into its vortex to be absorbed.

2: If the two storms are close to the same size, they can gravitate toward each other until they reach a common point where they either merge or they spin each other around for a while before they spin off in different directions.

3: The third possibility is that the two systems come together to form a large storm instead of two smaller ones.

Will it happen this time? The two tropical systems are not forecast by the NHC to cross paths but the distance between their respective forecast cones will be less than the 870 miles necessary, so it could happen.

:shock:

They're now predicted to be a little closer in time and space. :o

Plus, the Koreas are looking to get smacked by a Cat 2 at the same time, Tropical Storm Bavi.

Lotsa Marxists in the North.

Damn close to zero.
2 tropical storms a potential double threat to US Gulf Coast

... Tropical Storms Laura and Marco were both projected to approach the U.S. Gulf Coast at or near hurricane force....

Two hurricanes have never appeared in the Gulf of Mexico at the same time, according to records going back to at least 1900, said Colorado State University hurricane researcher Phil Klotzbach. The last time two tropical storms were in the Gulf together was in 1959, he said.

The last time two storms made landfall in the United States within 24 hours of each other was in 1933, Klotzbach said.

The projected track from the U.S. National Hurricane Center would put both storms together in the Gulf on Tuesday, with Marco hitting Texas and Laura making landfall a little less than a day later, though both tracks remain uncertain....

Both storms were expected to bring 3 to 6 inches (8 to 15 centimeters) of rain to areas they were passing over or near, threatening widespread flooding across a vast region....

It seems fitting for such an unusual twin threat to arrive in 2020, said University of Miami hurricane researcher Brian McNoldy.

“Of course, we have to have two simultaneously land-falling hurricanes,” McNoldy said. “It’s best not to ask what’s next.” ...
:shock:

America, Aug 29: So, when is the RNC starting?
