Default T. S. 'Arthur'

It's dissipating now over Mexico, but it looks like we had a jump start to the hurricane season this year with 'Arthur'. But it doesn't mean that the season will be superactive. I once read that there is actually a slight negative correlation between early season activity and activity for the rest of the season. We shall just wait and see.

Wasn't that unreal? TWC was showing it yesterday and saying how it wasn't even the official start yet until today.

Did it wreak any havoc there or was it mainly the heavy rains that they had predicted?

I know, it's funny how it got another name when it moved into the Atlantic side. I lived through the eye of Hurricane Rita in 2005 and I'm NOT doing that again!!

From my understanding, just heavy rains down in Mexico. I checked the headlines down there and most reports indicate about 10-15 inches of rain in Southern Mexico.

No reports of major damage just yet, but they are concerned for major flooding of already full rivers. This area has been hit hard with rain for who knows how long and this just aggrivates the situation.

As far as how abnormal a storm this early is, it really is not. Last year we had Subtropical Storm Andrea form off the coast of the Carolinas in early May last year. Arthur gained it's center of circulation in the Pacific Ocean as "Alma" until she crossed Guatemala into the Atlantic Basin. When storms cross over different basins, they get a new name.

Arthur regained a closed circulation over his short time over water and now moved into Mexico.

Tropical activity in the Atlantic shall remain as quiet as ever for the next week or so.
