10% chance of some tropical development in the Atlantic, but development will become less favorable. Hope the Caribbean get the rain from the tropical wave.

Default The Atlantic really has become a disappointing place to watch.

As a guy who loves to track hurricanes, I can remember the flurry of activity during the mid 2000s, and all the old paper charts I have. As a hurricane enthusiast, the past several years across the Atlantic Ocean have been really disappointing. Some facts:

-The Atlantic has not seen a Cat 5 since 2007's Felix. Yeah, I know cat 5's are a somewhat rare breed of hurricane, but the Atlantic hasn't seen one in nearly 8 years. EIGHT YEARS. Meanwhile, they've been sprouting like mushrooms all over the west Pacific.

-2013 was a complete joke of a season. There wasn't even a steady El Nino, yet we ended up with a bunch of weak systems that shriveled up and died. No major hurricanes, not even any cat 2s. We didn't see a hurricane until almost the middle of September.

-2014 wasn't much better. Only like 8 named storms. ACE was well below average.

-2015 looks to be in bad shape as well and is compounded by the El Nino. We're already into August and the outlook for the rest of the month and season looks dead. Wouldn't be surprised if there were no major hurricanes this year.

Any hobbyist hurricane trackers considering just dropping the Atlantic altogether and putting more focus on the Pacific?

Fixed. The Pacific continues to be an interesting place to watch, even if it is halfway around the world from where I live. Souldelor once had 180 MPH winds and has been an interesting watch so far, and there are currently several storms out in the Pacific right now.

It will be intresting to see if more hurricane remnants move up to California.

Yup, for the Atlantic at least. All part of the flip cycle. Atlantic is cooling down, Pacific heating up. Cold AMO/Warm PDO.

It's been 10yrs since a major hurricane hit the U.S and ...

Can you imagine the brainwashing headlines now if something like that happened?? Oh yeah, Katrina.

There hasn't been a direct hit since 2005 here


I've stopped looking at the hurricane centers page as it just reinforces my disappointment
