2021 Hurricane Season Thread

TexpackTexpack Posts: 3,492

I enjoyed the 2020 thread so much I’ll start the 2021 thread as well. When you can get access to the level of weather knowledge that 1984Met has simply by starting a thread, it’s a crime not to start one. Here’s hoping for a very quiet season.

    I THOUGHT there was a list of “permanently” retired names….Hugo and Fran and Katrina would have self esteem issues if not added to that list…

    And the Answer is…

    Thanks Texpack for the thread!

    Just in time for the last week of June, a possible tropical development off of the SC coast:

    Tropical Weather Outlook

    NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL

    800 AM EDT Mon Jun 28 2021

    For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

    1. A well-defined low pressure system located about 190 miles

    east-southeast of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, is producing a

    large area of showers and thunderstorms mainly west of the center.

    However, any additional increase in organization of the thunderstorm

    activity would result in the issuance of advisories for a tropical

    depression or tropical storm later this morning or afternoon. The

    low is forecast to move west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph, and the

    system should reach the coast of southern South Carolina or Georgia

    by this evening. If advisories are initiated, then tropical storm

    warnings could be required for a portion of the Georgia and South

    Carolina coasts with short notice. Regardless of development, a few

    inches of rain are possible along the immediate coasts of Georgia

    and southern South Carolina through Tuesday. An Air Force Reserve

    Unit reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the system

    this afternoon.

    * Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent.

    * Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.

    2. A broad area of low pressure associated with a tropical wave is

    producing a small cluster of showers and thunderstorms over the

    central tropical Atlantic Ocean. Some slow development is possible

    through the end of the week while this system moves quickly westward

    to west-northwestward at about 20 mph, likely reaching the Lesser

    Antilles Wednesday night.

    * Formation chance through 48 hours...low...20 percent.

    * Formation chance through 5 days...medium...40 percent.

    Perfect time for a beach vacation at Hilton Head. Lol

    Day trip to Savannah. At least they have an open container law. 🙂

    A hurricane hall of fame?! My goodness. 🤪

    I liked the ABC11 headline this morning... NC potentially in path of Hurricane Elsa. Oh really? Isn't that true for the entire South Eastern Coast of the US and the Gulf states?

    Elsa Strengthens.

    sounds like the name of a TikTok influencer.
