2010 Atlantic Hurricane Season

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!

Yeah, as much as I do also love winter I tend to find myself wanting different things by the last part of the winter, esp this one which has been as good as it has been!

I look forward to reading more when the season starts. Also, I hear they've predicted an above average season this year.

ive asked, people this before and i hope I haven't asked you this before.

do you think we will ever see anything like 2005 again?

on separate issue if you look on wiki in each of the major basins the strongest hurricanes have occurred in the last decade or so,

A season like 2005 is exceptionally rare, looking at the past records as far as we have seems like there is a rough return rate of about 50-75 years, so its more then likely we will get another season like that at some point, though may have to wait till the next 'warm cycle' to get it...

Still as long as we are in the warm cycle of the Atlantic busy, sometimes hyperactive seasons are more then probable...

I'll do a blog about 2005 though tomorrow and why it was so active, interestingly enough 2 factors were by far and away the most important...

Thanks for the question!
