Well here we are in the middle of this cold winter and I find myself already thinking of the hurricane season. I think most storm people, be it hurricane lovers, tornado lovers and even just bog standard convective lovers tend to get something of the winter blues at the back end of the winter and this winter seems to be no different for me, indeed if anything its even worse thanks to how good this winter has been!Anyway I did plan to do a blog way back when the blog system was first started but never found enough time to comment on it but now, in 2010 I feel I have just enough time and also dedication to go for it, very simply I'll put my thoughts about certain systems up here every now and then, esp with the biggies of course!Firstly, here is the 2010 season name list, which is quite different from the last outing of this name set in 2004, as there were several hurricanes retired from that list. So anyway here it is, with new names in red AlexBonnie[color="#ff0000"][b]Colin[/b][/color]DanielleEarl[color="#ff0000"][b]Fiona[/b][/color]GastonHermine[color="#ff0000"][b]Igor[/b][/color][color="#ff0000"][b]Julia[/b][/color]KarlLisaMatthewNicoleOttoPaulaRichardSharyTomasVirginieWalter Also one other little fact, in 1952 we would have already had our first tropical storm. A very rare system formed in the Caribbean and tracked NE making landfall in Florida. Just how tropical this sysem really was is unknown but forming on the 2nd of Feb, its the earliest pure tropical storm to form in the Atlantic basin. Indeed only 5 systems have developed before May in the Atlantic, the last being tropical storm Ana which developed in April 2003, such systems are very rare and thus are not to be expected in any season, though obviously they do crop up every now and then!Anyway I'll leave it at that for now, I'll update when I can as there may well be other systems from other basins that deserve a mention but until next time, stay safe!
