AOI: South of Mexico

Another AOI at the south of Mexico appears. 0/30 as of now. Anonymous 2.0 (talk) 02:22, July 30, 2018 (UTC)

This one probably won't do too much. Models are more interested in blowing up a possible system after this into a powerful hurricane. ~ KN2731 {talk} 13:56, July 31, 2018 (UTC)
in what way won't ileana do anything and john be poppin dem hurricane pills brah? §ÖñÖ ÇHÌ ñÖ §ÄÐÄMÈ JÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖJÖ 14:56, July 31, 2018 (UTC)
SO WAIT JOHN BE POPPIN PILLS TO BECOME A CAT 5? AND THE OTHER STORM IN THE MODEL RUN IS KRISTY?? If shear is gonna relax in august according to models then 420% likely that lane be on roids §ÖñÖ ÇHÌ ñÖ §ÄÐÄMÈ JÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖJÖ 15:00, July 31, 2018 (UTC)
Up to 0/40, and I feel this could be Ileana, but not sure how strong it'll get. However, "John" sounds like a strong name, and it would be exciting to see the system after this become "John" and intensify to as much as a C5 (as long as it remains out to sea). ~ Steve 🌞 Talk PageMy Edits📧 02:29, August 1, 2018 (UTC)
i predict: hector will peak at a c3, ileana a c3 and john a c1. kristy and lane are two c4s. --§ÖñÖ ÇHÌ ñÖ §ÄÐÄMÈ JÖÖÖÖÖÖÖÖJÖ 11:35, August 1, 2018 (UTC)

This will probably become Ileana next week. Rooting for it to become a hurricane or stronger unless it affects Mexico in the long run. ~ Steve 🌞 Talk PageMy Edits📧

Nvm my below comment this'll become something soon. Currently at 10/80. Ryan1000 15:04, August 2, 2018 (UTC)

Oh lol, I mixed this up too. The AOI that I said wouldn't do anything much is the one below at 10/30, while the "possible system after this" is actually this AOI at 10/80. ~ KN2731 {talk} 15:13, August 2, 2018 (UTC)

Currently 20/90. Anonymous 2.0 (talk) 03:14, August 3, 2018 (UTC)

Tropical Depression Twelve-E

Now a tropical depression. 30 kts/1006 mb. TG 2018 20:44, August 5, 2018 (UTC)

Tropical Storm John

Forecast peak at 95 knots, but could be higher given rapid intensification is likely. ~ KN2731 {talk} 03:39, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

Ok, the EPac is on FIRE. Three active systems, and a fourth one looking likely from the 60/80 invest?! Newly-named John is going to be the stronger one out of the twins of very close proximity. I'm betting at least a C3, maybe a C4, is in store for John. ~ Steve 🌞 Talk PageMy Edits📧 05:11, August 6, 2018 (UTC)
John's intensity history has been somewhat off and on, he was a cat 2 in 1978, a major in 1982, 1994 and 2006, but he failed miserably in 2012 and wasn't too strong in 2000 or 1988. If John can remain offshore without causing much impact to Mexico, I personally hope he becomes a cat 5 so we can have a Pacific hurricane name reach category 5 intensity twice, but that intensity may be pushing it a bit far with this one. Nonetheless, RI index is high, and I would be surprised if this incarnation of John doesn't become at least a cat 3. Ryan1000 05:16, August 6, 2018 (UTC)
This storm is now at 60 mph and 999 mbars, and is forecast by the NHC to become a hurricane in the next six to twelve hours. Sincerely, IbAHAn1829, and stay safe! \(:-D)Chat/Ta ta! 11:52, August 6, 2018 (UTC)
Rapid intensification index is extremely high with this storm (60 to 90% according to the NHC's latest forecast discussion) and John already looks like a hurricane on satellite imagery. He's expected to become at least a 125 mph cat 3 at this point, but given John's very favorable environment and small circulation (TS winds go only 70 miles from the center), there is a very good chance he could get stronger than the 125 mph that NHC currently forecasts; the SHIPS and LGEM models show an even higher intensity. I'd say John is already a lock for a cat 4 at this point, and maybe there's an outside chance John could be the first Pacific hurricane name to reach category 5 intensity twice. Ryan1000 12:51, August 6, 2018 (UTC)
This doesn't have much time. This will pass near Socorro Island and thereafter enter much colder water to its northwest. With that said, John is making the most of it and 60 knots/day RI would not surprise me, which would put Category 4 in play. YE Pacific Hurricane 15:52, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

NHC's latest forecast discussion says that this has an 80% chance of going up 40 knots in intensity over the next 24 hours, and that could be conservative. Small and compact EPac storms like John have a tendency to overshoot the NHC forecasts for them, we saw how Aletta didn't have much time and dry air in front of it and she became a cat 4, John could too or even become a cat 5. He also could absorb Ileana, as stated in her forecast discussion. Ryan1000 16:31, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

Almost a hurricane now: 70 mph, 993 mbars. John will definitely be a hurricane in the next advisory. Anonymous 2.0 (talk) 17:30, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

Hurricane John

Now it is one. 75 mph, 990 mbars. Leeboy100 Hello!! 20:59, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

Rapid intensification is on the way, John could be a major hurricane as early as tomorrow morning. Ryan1000 21:31, August 6, 2018 (UTC)
90 mph/977 mb. Thus begins the RI, only question now is exactly how strong he'll get. This incarnation of John may have the potential to outperform John of '94 in thems of intensity, but we'll have to see about that. Send Help Please (talk) 09:26, August 7, 2018 (UTC)
Actually I think a minimal 3 from John because of how fat he is. What he gives to this world (eating up Kristy and Ileana and being a womanise) he will get back. Just wait for Miriam and Lane. yare yare daze (talk) 14:57, August 7, 2018 (UTC)
bruh he became a 2 --yare yare daze (talk) 15:05, August 7, 2018 (UTC)
John might be able to brush C4 actually, the cloud tops around the eye are rather cold. ~ KN2731 {talk} 15:22, August 7, 2018 (UTC)
bruh he looking like he gonna eat kirsty --yare yare daze (talk) 15:29, August 7, 2018 (UTC)
John is nowhere near Kristy for John to absorb Kristy. Unless you meant Ileana, which is what John is doing lol. I'm expecting John to be a C3 at peak. ~ Roy25 Talk | Contributions 17:33, August 7, 2018 (UTC)

I just hope John doesn't completely miss major status a la Fabio. Send Help Please (talk) 21:23, August 7, 2018 (UTC)

Honestly I wouldn't particularly mind if John peaked where it is now, or at 95 kts. This would only be the second non-major Hurricane John on record after the 1978 storm, and would therefore add a little variety. Then again, barring post-analysis of Fabio, we've already had a C2-peaking storm this season, whereas we've yet to have one peak as a C3 (Aletta, Bud, and Hector all went on to peak as C4s, with the latter possibly even becoming a C5)... so a C3 John would add just as much variety to this year's PHS as a C2 John would to that name's intensity history. Basically I'll be equally satisfied with either this being John's peak, or John peaking as a C3. --Dylan (HurricaneMaker99) 22:51, August 7, 2018 (UTC)
There is still about a day or so for John to acquire major status. If it didn't I would be disappointed. I think of "John" as a strong-sounding name. Please don't pull a Fabio!! ~ Steve 🌞 Talk PageMy Edits📧 23:46, August 7, 2018 (UTC)

No changes as of latest advisory, John should've laid off the meatballs, 2fat4major. Send Help Please (talk) 03:20, August 8, 2018 (UTC)

I think you meant he should’ve laid off the cannibalism. He is looking pretty fat, as you were saying. :P Leeboy100 Hello!! 04:26, August 8, 2018 (UTC)
Well, John was pretty fat before eating Ileana, I guess his gluttonous tendencies morphed into cannibalism when he decided that warm water and moist air weren't enough to sustain him. Regardless, he's down to 100 mph/972 mb, and his descent has begun. Perhaps him not reaching major status is karma for the aforementioned cannibalism... Send Help Please (talk) 10:37, August 8, 2018 (UTC)
Looks like John ran into unfavorable conditions faster than expected. The eye is now indistinct, and ATCF has brought John down to a C1. ~ KN2731 {talk} 13:50, August 8, 2018 (UTC)
that's what you get for eating up innocent ppl (remember iris and hamberto? eating karen for dinner?) he is paying the price: not becoming a major hurricane, also wasting ileana and kristy's opportunities to be strong storms. likely the next storm after kristy will be intense after the cold wake has gone --yare yare daze (talk) 17:12, August 8, 2018 (UTC)

And John follows Fabio and Hilary. Oh well, he was fun to watch at his peak. Anonymous 2.0 (talk) 18:52, August 8, 2018 (UTC)

Oh well, expected to weaken to dissipation. I wonder how many more storms will fail to reach major status. ~ Roy25 Talk | Contributions 23:30, August 08, 2018 (UTC)

AOI: South of Mexico II

A new AOI overlaps with the AOI above in the 5-day TWO. Currently 10/30. The EPac has awakened. Anonymous 2.0 (talk) 04:20, August 2, 2018 (UTC)

Assuming I'm not getting this and the above storm confused, this AOI is now up to 10/80 and is expected to become a depression early next week, but the AOI in front of it is only at 10/30, not as likely to develop. I say that this'll be Ileana. Ryan1000 12:49, August 2, 2018 (UTC)
This may be the 10/30 one, I believe. The 10/80 one is the AOI above this one. This may steal Ileana if conditions become favorable, but for now, the AOI above would be the one that has the highest possibility of becoming Ileana. Anonymous 2.0 (talk) 13:55, August 2, 2018 (UTC)
Nevermind, I mixed them up. This is the AOI directly behind Hector, but this probably won't develop anyways. Ryan1000 15:04, August 2, 2018 (UTC)

This disturbance is pretty much just Ileana food. Send Help Please (talk) 21:47, August 2, 2018 (UTC)

20/40 now. Anonymous 2.0 (talk) 03:14, August 3, 2018 (UTC)
30/50. This may be John after all (or Ileana, if the unexpected happens). Anonymous 2.0 (talk) 11:34, August 3, 2018 (UTC)
60/90. This might actually be Ileana first if it spins up fast enough. ~ KN2731 {talk} 03:28, August 4, 2018 (UTC)


And this has been invested first, actually. Up as 94E on TropicalTidbits. ~ KN2731 {talk} 03:31, August 4, 2018 (UTC)

Up to 70/90. Ileana and John could come at the same time due to this and the above system. ~ Steve 🌞 Talk PageMy Edits📧 06:44, August 4, 2018 (UTC)
I think this is the 60/90 one. Regardless, it is most likely that we will see Ileana and John before the succeeding week starts. Anonymous 2.0 (talk) 09:10, August 4, 2018 (UTC)

Never mind. This is now 70/90 as the invest above is 80/90. Anonymous 2.0 (talk) 13:02, August 4, 2018 (UTC)

The chances of this invest forming have actually gone down a bit, to 60%/80%. I guess this one will be Kristy, since 12-E could become John before this forms, unless it gets its act together quickly. Sincerely, IbAHAn1829, and stay safe! \(:-D)Chat/Ta ta! 01:50, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

If this does become Kristy I doubt it'll be strong, since it will be following in Hector's cold, upwelled wake. Ryan1000 04:48, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

Agreed that it probably won't be too powerful, but if it becomes named soon, we could see 4 active named systems in the EPac and CPac! Insane especially after the dead July. Something must have made it more favorable?! ~ Steve 🌞 Talk PageMy Edits📧 05:14, August 6, 2018 (UTC)
I've heard that people are forecasting an El Niño to form this year, but i'm not sure if this is a cause. I'm guessing it was just the conditions improving like a decrease in wind shear. Sincerely, IbAHAn1829, and stay safe! \(:-D)Chat/Ta ta! 11:44, August 6, 2018 (UTC)
The Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) is back in the EPac, and most forecasting agencies expected an El Nino this year to begin with, with higher activity expected in the EPac but less in the Atlantic. Yeah, we may have had two hurricanes in July in the Atlantic but the basin hasn't had much since and isn't expected to anytime soon; the AOI near the Azores right now isn't expected to develop, let alone affect land. Ryan1000 12:51, August 6, 2018 (UTC)
Wind shear has declined quite a bit in the basin. This should become Kristy as it tracks west even if it's taking its sweet time now. YE Pacific Hurricane 15:50, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

Still 60/80, but this thing still has a high chance to become Kristy in the next couple of days (or so). Anonymous 2.0 (talk) 17:30, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

Tropical Depression Thirteen-E

"Satellite data indicate that thunderstorm activity associated with a well-defined low pressure system located about 1000 miles southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula has continued to become better organized during the past several hours, and a special advisory package will be issued on Tropical Depression 13-E by 1000 PM PDT." --Isaac829E-Mail 04:16, August 7, 2018 (UTC)

The track forecast is now out, 13E (Kristy) might have an outside chance to be a hurricane but currently expected to be 65 mph, and interaction with a weakening John late in the forecast period could turn Kristy-to-be northward, eventually over cooler waters and dissipating. Ryan1000 05:50, August 7, 2018 (UTC)

Tropical Storm Kristy

Here she is, already outpreforming initial forecasts. 50 mph/1000 mb right now, expected to be a minimal hurricane in 48 hours before interaction with John. Send Help Please (talk) 09:21, August 7, 2018 (UTC) Kristy you little minx. Anyway I predict a C2 peak. yare yare daze (talk) 14:57, August 7, 2018 (UTC)

At least i'm glad the EPAC is finally pulling its acts together after sleeping in July, which, if I can recall, is generally one of the most active months for the EPAC. Kristy should also be a hurricane in the coming days. ~ Roy25 Talk | Contributions 17:35, August 7, 2018 (UTC)
The MJO moved into the basin, which should explain the high activity we are seeing. Kristy still forecast to become a hurricane, but it will only peak as a weak C1 if it does so (unless we see a sudden unexpected RI stunt). ~ Steve 🌞 Talk PageMy Edits📧 23:50, August 7, 2018 (UTC)

Plot twist. This may become Ileana. Still poorly organized as of the moment though. Anonymous 2.0 (talk) 04:13, August 5, 2018 (UTC)

Up to 30 knots. This may actually win the race and become Ileana. ~ KN2731 {talk} 09:11, August 5, 2018 (UTC)
Unfortunately if it does, it may not become that strong of a fishspinner. Currently forecast to peak at only 50 mph. Ryan1000 13:44, August 5, 2018 (UTC)

Tropical Storm Ileana

And it looks like Ileana has arrived. currently 40 kts/1003 mb, and expected to stay at TS strength. TG 2018 20:42, August 5, 2018 (UTC)

They're both in surprisingly close proximity, and John could eat up the remnants of Ileana in the long run. For now Ileana is expected to bring impacts to Mexico, and a tropical storm warning has been issued. John shall become the dominant one and prevent Ileana from becoming more than a strong TS. For now, I doubt this will become a hurricane. ~ Steve 🌞 Talk PageMy Edits📧 05:17, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

2AM (1AM CDT) advisory: 999 mbars, 60 mph. Anonymous 2.0 (talk) 06:24, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

Now 65 mph / 998 mbars. It is now forecast to become a hurricane by the NHC. Sincerely, IbAHAn1829, and stay safe! \(:-D)Chat/Ta ta! 11:47, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

Woah, Ileana is making me (and the NHC) eat our words. It might very well be a hurricane at this rate, but the track now brings her closer to Mexico's coastline. There's a high pressure system over Mexico right now, but the rotation of, and interaction with, her brother John might try to force her closer to the coastline. There could be some impacts with this if that happens. Ryan1000 12:41, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

Should rotate counterclockwise as it interacts with John. Could become a hurricane in the meantime but GFS/ECMWF don't have a good handle on this so confidence is low. YE Pacific Hurricane 15:55, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

The NHC no longer expects this to become a hurricane as of latest advisory. It's only a matter of time before Ileana becomes John food (which is the exact opposite of what I said several days ago lol). Send Help Please (talk) 21:18, August 6, 2018 (UTC)

Yeah, NHC says that Ileana already looks like an outer rainband of John by now, so John's probably going to eat up his little sister sometime tomorrow. Ryan1000 21:31, August 6, 2018 (UTC)
"John's probably going to eat up his little sister" sounds so morbid when you take it out of context. Also, which storm is truly the little sibling? Ileana may be smaller in size, but she did form first... although one could lawyer about the precursor to John becoming identified before the precursor to Ileana. --Dylan (HurricaneMaker99) 00:26, August 7, 2018 (UTC)

"Hurricane cannibalism" has happened before, the TD that became Hurricane Alex in 2010 swallowed category 3 hurricane Darby in the EPac at that time, since Darby was so small compared to the much larger Atlantic depression, and Ileana is pretty small compared to John. Ryan1000 01:10, August 7, 2018 (UTC)

The formidable long-track major hurricane I mentioned earlier is very unlikely to ever come from this.

Woah, calm down. Just because it's your favorite name doesn't mean it HAS to be a powerful fishspinning major hurricane. I also heard that you bet 50 pounds for Lane to be huge. Unless this invest does a completely unexpected RI stunt, you might unfortunately lose your money. This invest is too far away to be Walaka, unless it takes like a week to develop (most likely it will be Lane). If you lose your money, well that's too bad. Next time, you can learn to not bet that much money on such luck-based outcomes.

A 105 mph point at the end of the forecast. Since NHC forecasts are often conservative about the long run, you might be lucky and get your money back after all. Lane is likely to actually be a formidable long-tracked major, and possibly even follow in Hector's footsteps! 😊 ~ Steve 🌞 Talk PageMy Edits📧 02:52, August 15, 2018 (UTC)

Hmm I'm thinking C4 peak, maybe 115 to 125 knots, since the sea surface temperatures ahead of Lane aren't especially high unless Lane pulls a Hector and goes annular. There might be some threat to Hawaii in the long run but that's more than a week away so it's probably too early to tell. ~ KN2731 {talk} 16:10, August 15, 2018 (UTC)
Also this season is moving pretty fast. We're already up to the L storm in mid-August with over a hundred ACE units (courtesy of Hector), the only sticky point being the CPac which hasn't seen Walaka yet. ~ KN2731 {talk} 16:14, August 15, 2018 (UTC)

I think she and Bud will be similar intensity tbh --¡OIᗡ 'ƎW S∀M ⊥I (talk) 16:20, August 15, 2018 (UTC)

If this becomes another strong and long-lived major hurricane like Hector, I think he could be going down "Victory Lane" or something like that. But unlike Hector, Lane could eventually pass north of Hawaii instead of south, on his current projected course. If not, he could at least get closer to the islands than Hector did. May be something to watch out for. Ryan1000 17:31, August 15, 2018 (UTC)
Hopefully it's not going to be a Hawaii threat in the distant long run... but with the way things are appearing now, it's possible it could more of a Hawaii threat than Hector was. Hawaii is now in view on the forecast track map, and it appears to be moving on a trajectory that would take it south of Hawaii (like Hector) but possibly closer. At least Rara will keep her 50 pounds (unless Lane falls far short of expectations). ~ Steve 🌞 Talk PageMy Edits📧 03:50, August 16, 2018 (UTC)

At least Rara keeps the 50 quid. However, this is slowly becoming like 2014's Iselle. While Iselle weakened to a TS before hitting Hawaii, Lane is expected to become a high-end Category 3 (at least according to JTWC's unofficial forecast track). Anonymous 2.0 (talk) 09:06, August 16, 2018 (UTC)

Given the fact EPac storms can overshoot the NHC forecasts for intensity in ideal conditions, like Aletta earlier this year, I wouldn't be surprised if Lane becomes a cat 4 like Iselle or Hector. Ryan1000 12:18, August 16, 2018 (UTC)
ditto what ry said above ^^^ but exact peak? --¡OIᗡ 'ƎW S∀M ⊥I (talk) 13:14, August 16, 2018 (UTC)

Hurricane Lane

Now a hurricane, and still forecast to be a cat 3, but we could easily see a cat 4 from this given Lane's impressive structure, I personally predict 145-150 mph, but it could go to 155, just under cat 5 like Hector did. Ryan1000 03:48, August 17, 2018 (UTC)

Since it should stay south of Hawaii, I would even root for it to become the C5 that Hector didn't become. But that's just wishful thinking. More likely, it might peak a little under Hector's intensity (I also predict around 145-150 mph). Lane is Hector 2.0... ~ Steve 🌞 Talk PageMy Edits📧 05:07, August 17, 2018 (UTC)

Major Hurricane Lane

It's official, Joestar's 50 pounds are safe. Send Help Please (talk) 02:43, August 18, 2018 (UTC)

Forecast to hit 140 mph, but I see no reason Lane can't get up to 145-155 mph, it's a very well-organized storm and his RI isn't stopping. Not surte if he'll make it all the way to cat 5 though. Also, something else I should point out is when Lane was named 3 days ago, he became named 5 days before Lester in 1992, so we're actually ahead of that season's pace at this moment, but we're still quite a ways behind 1985, and 1992 also had some CPac storms as well. Ryan1000 04:05, August 18, 2018 (UTC)
Wow, Lane is just taking off. 105 knots, 964 mbars, and is expected to strengthen further into a Category 4. Also, this is somewhat off-topic, but it’s good news, and I’m just going to put it here. Power has been restored for pretty much all of Puerto Rico aafter Hurricane Maria last year.Hopefully, unlike Maria, Lane will miss a US state/territory that’s out to sea, in this case Hawaii. Actually, never mind, Lane is supposed to miss Hawaii anyway. My bad. Leeboy100 Hello!! 05:44, August 18, 2018 (UTC)
Joestar/Rara must be having a party right now. She correctly betted this and will get her 50 pounds back!

"Victory Lane" has an outside shot of becoming a 5, but the NHC says favorable conditions will only persist for the next 12 to 24 hours or so before Lane moves into a less favorable environment. Still, this is looking like a really cool storm to track like Hector. We're probably going to see a lot of ACE from this storm too, though not as much as Hector. Ryan1000 12:30, August 18, 2018 (UTC)

Most recent advisory kept the pressure steady but bumped the winds to 120 kts, and the 18z ATCF has retained those values. With this considered, combined with the fact that Lane's eye seems to have clouded over a bit recently, I suspect he's leveling off in intensity, though it would be cool to see him strengthen a bit more (I like the numbers 130 and 150... it'd be nice if Lane could peak at 130 kts/150 mph). Joestar's success with Lane reminds me of how I somehow managed to accurately predict five years in advance that last year's Arlene would form in April. --Dylan (HurricaneMaker99) 19:25, August 18, 2018 (UTC)

2 PM PDT advisory leaves Victory Lane's intensity in check at 140 mph and 948 mbars. He could muscle in a few more mph in intensity before weakening due to somewhat higher shear as Lane eventually passes south of Hawaii. Ryan1000 21:08, August 18, 2018 (UTC)

I guess it will be weaker than Hector. It's also beginning to cross into the CPac ATM, and will start dying out soon after passing Hawaii. ~ Steve 🌞 Talk PageMy Edits📧 01:18, August 19, 2018 (UTC)

He's already started to die down, it's likely Lane won't get any stronger at this point, but a 140 mph storm is still a fairly good intensity. Also, he's now expected to pass even further south of Hawaii than Hector did, which is good news, and he'll be weaker. Ryan1000 04:42, August 19, 2018 (UTC)

CPac named storms aren't supposed to form that often (2015 was an exception as it was a super El Nino, but this year's El Nino may not be as strong as that of 2015). But fret not, it's only August 16, we still have about 2 and a half (active) months of the EPac season left. And having 12 named storms in the EPac proper right now is well ahead of schedule. Not as active as the record pace of 1985 or 1992, but still a good pace nonetheless. Ryan1000 03:48, August 17, 2018 (UTC)

I'm hoping this somehow survives to the CPac and becomes Walaka. At least it would break the monotony there. ~ KN2731 {talk} 04:42, August 19, 2018 (UTC)

Retirements at a Glance

Seven storms have formed and we might as well add this section now. Anonymous 2.0 (talk) 17:16, July 31, 2018 (UTC)

A2.0's EastPac retirement expectations

  • Aletta - 4% - A fishspinner but showed us how to start a season. 4% because it peaked as a C4.
  • Bud - 4% - Also 4% because of its Category 4 status. Great follow-up to Aletta, but juat like Bud's predecessor, it caused no effects to land, so that won't merit any realistic chance of retirement for Bud too.
  • Carlotta - 5% - Affected Mexico and caused some problems, but no fatalities were recorded so I think Carlotta will be back in 2024.
  • Daniel - 0% - Danfail it is, as Send Help Please called it. Broke the streak of strong hurricanes that bore the same name. Yikes.
  • Emilia - 0% - Another forgettable storm.
  • Fabio - 2% - For peaking as a Category 2. Forecast to become a major, yet Fabio bottled it a la Hilary 2017.
  • Gilma - 0% - Just like what Send Help Please also said, Failma. The Failicia of this season along with Danfail, so far.
  • Hector - TBD - Currrently a threat to Hawaii, but forecasts show it will remain south of it.
  • Ileana - TBD - May cause some impacts in Mexico, we'll wait and see.
  • John - TBD - Same with Ileana.

That's it.

Dylan's predictions

  • Aletta: 0% - A beautiful, intense, harmless kick-off to the season.
  • Bud: 1% - Another gorgeous storm to observe over open water, with fortunately minimal effects on land.
  • Carlotta: 2% - Was more of a nuisance for Mexico than expected.
  • Daniel: no
  • Emilia: 0% - Not an epic fail, not much of a winner either. It sort of just existed.
  • Fabio: 0% - 🎶leeeet doooown aaaaand haaaaanging aroooouuund🎵
  • Gilma: 0% - Worse flop than Daniel in terms of intensity but at least it was resilient in its post-TS depression stage.
  • Hector: 0% - Gud storm was gud. I'll defer to Steve and Ryan's explanations as to why.
  • Ileana: <1% 3% - John murdered her and consumed her remains <death metal plays in background> before she could do much to Mexico.
  • Bumping up a tad — Ileana is the first storm of the season to cause fatalities, with a death toll of 4 thus far. Fingers crossed it doesn't rise any higher.
  • John: 0% - The ends probably didn't justify the means, but by preventing Ileana from being any worse for Mexico, John arguably helped more than he harmed.
  • Kristy: -1% - You can take a negative percent as punishment for stalling just below hurricane status for a full day, only to abruptly collapse into nothing. Poor show, Kristy.
  • Lane: TBD% - Still active. We'll see whether this becomes a threat to Hawaii down the road.

Roy's Retirement Prediction

Intensity colors: TD, TS, C1, C2, C3, C4, C5

Retirement percentages colors: 0%, 0.001-9%, 10-19%, 20-29%, 30-39%, 40-49%, 50%, 51-59%, 60-69%, 70-79%, 80-89%, 90-99%, 100%, ???

  • Aletta (0%) - A nice harmless fishspinner. Obviously this won't be going.
  • Bud (0.001%) - While it did affected land at the end of its life, this was also pretty much a fishspinner
  • Carlotta (1%) - While weak, it has came close to Mexico, but no deaths and damage were reported.
  • Daniel (0%) - A weak failicia that untimately was a name stealer. Unimpressed
  • Emilia (0%) - A rather weak, but a nice fishspinner
  • Fabio (0%) - Nice fishspinning hurricane that broke the TS streak, but failed to reach major hurricane status. Sigh
  • Gilma (0%) - Same as Daniel, except weaker, and only lasted 6 hours as a TS. Name-stealer.
  • Hector (???) - Currently active
  • Ileana (0%) - Didn't last long before being absorbed by John
  • John (???) - Currently active
  • Kristy (???) - Currently active


  1. Should I give a tropical cyclone name a retirement chance of 50% and above, then that tropical cyclone name will be all caps.
  2. The triple question marks on my retirement percentage scale is only used as placeholders on an active storm.
  3. Storms that exits a basin and enters another basin would not have their own retirement predictions in that basin it entered, instead will have it in the basin of origin.

Steve's predictions and grades

See "notes" (at the very bottom) for explanations of some stuff.

Intensity colors: TD, TS, C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, 200+ mph

Retirement percentage colors: 0% or N/A, 0.001-0.4%, 0.5-0.9%, 1-4%, 5%-9%, 10-14%, 15-19%, 20-24%, 25-29%, 30-34%, 35-39%, 40-44%, 45-49%, 50%, 51-54%, 55-59%, 60-64%, 65-69%, 70-74%, 75-79%, 80-84%, 85-89%, 90-94%, 95-98%, 99-99.999%, 100% or TBA

Grading colors: EO+, EO, A++, A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D-, E, F, F-, Z, Z-, TBA

  • One-E:
    • Retirement: N/A - No name, no retirement.
    • Grading: F - Gets credit for its formation before the start of the season. Still a fail, nonetheless.
  • Aletta:
    • Retirement: 0% - Complete fishspinner.
    • Grading: A - A nice early season powerful hurricane. As a bonus, no one was affected at all.
  • Bud:
    • Retirement: 1% - Struck Baja, but without doing much harm. Caused a moisture plume to reach the southwestern U.S., and that wasn't harmful either. Impacts are too light for retirement.
    • Grading: A- - Another nicely strong hurricane that reached the bare minimum for C4. Impacts are not enough to affect the grade.
  • Carlotta:
    • Retirement: 2% - Caused torrential rainfall in the area of Mexico that it affected. Impacts are not enough to even think about retirement, though.
    • Grading: D - Strong tropical storm that affected land. At least it was not a total failure like the below storm was.
  • Daniel:
    • Retirement: 0% - Out to sea, no one was affected.
    • Grading: Z - Laughable failure that only lasted 2 days and peaked at no more than 45 mph/1003 mbar. Danfail will be remembered as a complete nothingburger. 😂
  • Emilia:
    • Retirement: 0% - Another fishspinner.
    • Grading: E - That very active June was a bit more about quantity than quality. Reached 60 mph, but I don't care for this boring storm.
  • Fabio:
    • Retirement: 0% - Yet another out-to-sea system.
    • Grading: C- - A strong C2 usually doesn't get this low of a grade. But the story is that Fabio's grade really suffered because it was expected to become a major hurricane, but flunked the mark by just 5 mph! In fact, it had potential to RI to reach C4 or possibly even C5. A major disappointment you were, Fabio.
  • Gilma:
    • Retirement: 0% - Also out to sea.
    • Grading: Z - Even worse than Danfail, and was a TS for only 6 measly hours. Gilfail was one of the worst, and most laughable, name-stealers ever! It did last a few days in total, which is the only thing that prevents it from being Z-.
  • Nine-E
    • Retirement: N/A - Cannot be retired.
    • Grading: Z - It had potential to last even longer than it did. At least it didn't steal a name. Still a pathetic failure though.
  • Hector:
    • Retirement: 0% - Despite its long track, it stayed out to sea and no fatalities or damage were reported at all.
    • Grading: EO - Oh boy, where do I start. It crossed THREE basins, the first to do so since Genevieve in 2014. Also, it broke the record for most consecutive days as a major hurricane and most hours as a C4 in the northeastern Pacific. Except for dangerous surf in Hawaii, this did not harm anyone at all! Hector has earned its status as an extraordinarily outstanding storm! The only thing preventing this from being EO+, my absolute highest grade, is that it stayed below C5 unlike John '94 (a relatively similar storm).
  • Ileana:
    • Retirement: 6% - Unfortunately proved to be deadly. 🙁 Highly unlikely for retirement though.
    • Grading: E - Did its best in the face of John. However, they did forecast a hurricane once.
  • John:
    • Retirement: 0% - I believe the only impacts were high surf.
    • Grading: C- - Pulled a Fabio by flunking major status. And shame on him for being a cannibal.
  • Kristy:
    • Retirement: 0% - Nope.
    • Grading: D- - It had potential to become a hurricane, but failed by 5 mph.
  • Lane:
    • Retirement: TBA - Currently active. Retirement prediction will be released once it dissipates.
    • Grading: TBA - Currently active. Grade will be released once it dissipates.

Notes: Intensity colors -

  • Based off of the SSHWS, except for the 200+ mph color.
  • I still use "TD" due to the inclusion of grading (they cannot be retired). So it would be wrong for TD to be considered redundant in this case because TDs are still included for grading only.
  • I wanted to give special recognition for cyclones reaching insane intensities by introducing a new color for those that reach the "200 Club." Of course, very few storms will ever receive this color.

Retirement percentage colors -

  • "N/A", which is gray like 0%, is most often used for tropical depressions, which are usually not named and thus cannot have a name retired. Other unnamed storms receive "N/A" as well.
  • "TBA", which is black like 100%, is used for currently active storms or recently dissipated storms without a definite percentage of retirement yet. "TBA" is also used for grading when a system is currently active.
  • 0% and 100% are estimated percentages, in which they don't necessarily mean that it is absolutely certain that a storm name will or won't be retired. Unless it is the PAGASA basin (which has retirement requirements), there will always still be an infinitesimally small chance of retirement (for 0%) or non-retirement (for 100%).
  • New for 2018: My scale comes in ranges now instead of individual percentages. This allows me to use any percentage now instead of having to restrict myself to individual percentages. Any percentage within a range (like from 1-4%) uses the same color (in this example, blue). The range also includes decimals and goes slightly beyond what is shown as the "highest" number in my scale. The actual highest limit to the range earlier described is 4.99999...% (I don't round up to the next range). Those upper limit decimals are not included in my scale in order to preserve space.
  • Different fonts indicate how likely a storm is to be retired. The whole entry of the storm is bolded, italicized, underlined, or capitalized depending on my retirement prediction. For low or nil-chance storms (0% to 24%), only the colored components (storm's name, percentage, and grade) are bolded and the rest of the entry is plain-text. For 25% to 49%, the whole entry is bolded. For 50% to 74%, the whole entry is both bolded and italicized. For 75% to 99.999%, the whole entry is bolded, italicized, and underlined. 100% entries are bolded, italicized, underlined, and capitalized.

Grading colors -

  • EO = "Extraordinarily Outstanding". This is beyond "A", when a TC is so good that it deserves special recognition. Add a "+" to emphasize the best and most outstanding TCs that have ever occurred in history (such as Patricia '15 or John '94). I try to avoid giving this rating to catastrophic storms due to the fact that catastrophe knocks down a storm's reputation, and it would seem insensitive to give such storms a high rating. An EO+ storm has requirements that are stricter than EO: it has to be a fishspinner (or, if affecting land, not cause very significant damage or deaths, which means no Haiyan, Wilma, Irma, etc.) and it has to be very near records (I'd say top 3), tie, or break records relating to powerful intensity, longevity, or how unusual it is. If the achievement is one of the latter two, an EO+ storm has to peak as a major (C3+ on the SSHWS). An exception to the major rule could occur if a storm is INSANELY long-lived or unusual. For example: a tropical system that literally forms in the Arctic Ocean/right on the equator/Antarctic/far inland/other extremely strange spots, or a storm that lasts months would almost always be deserving of "EO+".
  • Z = If the grading scale were to go down the same pattern as A to F, it would go to G, H, etc. and would eventually have to stop at "Z". All the in between letters from G to Y are skipped because it would be way too much, redundant and unnecessary. "Z" is the letter assigned to the worst of the worst, and such storms would be considered epic failures and unmemorable because of a lack of land effects. If I gave a highly impacting storm a Z, it might seem insensitive because the storm actually did something. Add a "-" to the grade to emphasize the worst epic failures that ever occurred in history. Specific requirements for the Z- storm are as follows: Fishspinner (or barely affecting land) due to lack of memorability, peaks at no more than 40 mph, lasts no longer than one day, or is downgraded from a TS to a TD or worse in post-analysis while still named. Although weak named TSs receive Z- on occasion, even fishspinning TDs don't receive the Z- grade that often because, in my opinion, stealing a precious name is a worse offense than remaining unnamed. If a system is named, more should be expected out of it.
  • Except for the extreme grades and "E", this scale is obviously based off of the educational grading system.

Ryan1000's retirement predictions

Here's my thoughts on retirements so far:

  • Aletta - 0% - A great way to start the season, and her strongest incarnation to date as well.
  • Bud - 1% - Like Aletta, this is the strongest incarnation of Bud to date, but his Baja landfall brought minimal effects at most.
  • Carlotta - 2% - This was to Bud as Carlos was to Blanca in 2015, a slightly worse storm but still probably won't be retired.
  • Daniel - 0% - It's a shame that Daniel, one of our traditional EPac major fishspinners, flopped this time around...try again in 2024.
  • Emilia - 0% - Fared slightly better than Daniel but was still unimpressive overall.
  • Fabio - 0% - Reminds me of Hilary last year. He failed to meet expectations, but his large size held him back.
  • Gilma - 0% - Lasted slightly longer than Daniel but failed worse than he did by intensity.
  • Hector - 0% - Was an absolutey amazing storm to track. It lasted for the most consecutive days as a major hurricane on record in the Pacific while east of the dateline, at 7.75 days, beating Norbert of 1984, and racked up the 4th highest ACE of any Pacific hurricane while east of the dateline as well, all while not causing any known damage or deaths on land. My favorite storm of the season.
  • Ileana - 4% - Despite being eaten by John, Ileana unfortunately still killed 4 people in Mexico, with some minor damage to boot.
  • John - 0% - Fishie, and failed to be a major; consider that punishment for eating your little sister.
  • Kristy - 0% - It's a shame that Kristy fell short of hurricane intensity; hopefully she can be upgraded in reanalysis.
  • Lane - ?? - Still active, hopefully he passes south of Hawaii down the road.

That'll suffice. Ryan1000 04:44, August 1, 2018 (UTC)

KN2731's storm grades & retirements

I'll jump on the bandwagon and add mine too.

Grades: A, B, C, D, E, F. These grades go by meteorological statistics alone, and do not reflect my opinion of any deaths or destruction that occurs; for that refer to the appended descriptions and retirement chances.

Retirements: 0%, 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25%, 30%, 35%, 40%, 50%, 60%, 70%, 80%, 90%, 100%.

  • One-E – grade D. Couldn't do much in the face of shear, but gave us an early start.
  • Aletta – grade A, retirement 0%. Amazing powerful June fishspinner. Well done for our first ever major hurricane Aletta.
  • Bud – grade B, retirement 5%. Touched C4 but rapidly weakened immediately after. Thankful for that however as it made landfall on Baja California not long after, and didn't cause much damage.
  • Carlotta – grade B, retirement 5%. Intensified surprisingly quickly close to land despite being forecast to fizzle. Not much damage reported, so that's all good.
  • Daniel – grade F, retirement 0%. Historically Daniel was the name of a long line of fishspinning majors. Completely flopped this year with its weakest ever incarnation. Boo.
  • Emilia – grade E, retirement 0%. Chose the wrong time and place to form and got burdened by shear.
  • Fabio – grade C, retirement 0%. Great fishspinner, but lost points for peaking just under major hurricane status. :(
  • Gilma – grade F, retirement 0%. Utterly pathetic name thief. Probably doesn't even deserve a grade.
  • Nine-E – grade E. See Emilia.
  • Hector – grade A, retirement 0%. Powerful tri-basin crosser that managed to miss Hawaii. Well done, Hector. Definitely best storm so far.
  • Ileana – grade B, retirement 5%. Surprised us all by spinning up so quickly and beating out the more hopeful AOIs (John and Kristy). Could have become a hurricane (albeit a dangerous one, given her proximity to Mexico) if not for John's cannibal tendencies.
  • John – grade C, retirement 0%. Gets points for being interesting by cannibalizing Kristy, but pulled a Fabio and flunked major hurricane status. :(
  • Kristy – grade D, retirement 0%. Screwed up by peaking just under hurricane intensity; grade may rise if she's upgraded post-season.

Harvey's retirement predictions

Intensity colors: TD, TS, C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, C5 (185+ mph)

Retirement percentage colors: 0% or N/A, 0.001-0.9%, 1-9%, 10-19%, 20-29%, 30-39%, 40-49%, 50-59%, 60-69%, 70-79%, 80-89%, 90-99%, 100%

Grading colors: S, A+++, A++, A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D-, E, F, F-, Z, Z-, TBA

  • One-E:
    • Retirement: N/A
    • Grading: F - Mostly a fail, but it did form in the early season.
  • Aletta:
    • Retirement: 0% - This storm did not affect land.
    • Grading: A - This storm gets a high grade due to the rapid deepening and the great satellite imagery at peak intensity. This is the strongest incarnation of this storm to date.
  • Bud:
    • Retirement: 0.7% - It did struck Baja late in its life as a weak TS, however impacts are too minimal for retirement.
    • Grading: A- - Like the above storm, it was a powerful early storm that was the strongest of its incarnation, however this one was slightly weaker.
  • Carlotta:
    • Retirement: 1% - Caused torrential rainfall in Mexico. Impacts are minimal and do not affect the retirement.
    • Grading: D - This would become the first of many weak storms in the season. Impacts aren't memorable enough to affect the grade.
  • Daniel:
    • Retirement: 0% - Another fish storm.
    • Grading: Z - Just about every other incarnation of this storm was a fishspinner that reached major hurricane status, but this one broke the chain and decided to fail miserably. Ugh...
  • Emilia:
    • Retirement: 0% - Another fishspinner.
    • Grading: E - Another weak fishspinner. Another fail, but it didn't fail too hard.
  • Fabio:
    • Retirement: 0% - Yet another fishspinner.
    • Grading: C - Well, it could have been higher, but it's only because it failed even though it was expected to be a major. And it was 5 mph away from becoming one, and might have even had the chance to become a C4 or possibly even C5. I would have put it lower, but at least it did reach a high intensity.
  • Gilma:
    • Retirement: 0% - Another fish-spinning fishspinner.
    • Grading: Z- - It barely lasted more than two days, and was only a TS for 6 hours. In other words, it didn't try at all.
  • Nine-E
    • Retirement: N/A
    • Grading: F- - Another weak depression. At least it didn't steal a name like the above storm did.
  • Hector:
    • Retirement: 0% - Impact was minimal.
    • Grading: S - This is hands down the best storm of the season. It crossed all three basins, the last time this happened was with Genevieve in 2014. It also broke the record for most consecutive days as a major hurricane and most hours as a C4 in the northeastern Pacific. Best of all, it didn't harm me at all (I live in Hawaii FYI). C5 or not, it still earned the highest grade.
  • Ileana:
    • Retirement: 3% - 4 deaths. Still unlikely for retirement.
    • Grading: C+ - It did its best, unfortunately eaten up by John. It could have been a hurricane.
  • John:
    • Retirement: 0% - Only high surf.
    • Grading: C- - While it did get some points for eating up a storm, it flunked major status.
  • Kristy:
    • Retirement: 0% - Fishspinner.
    • Grading: E - It could have become a hurricane, but it failed.
  • Lane:
    • Retirement: TBA - Currently active.
    • Grading: TBA - Currently active.


  • Storm names in italics indicate currently active storms.

Lee’s retirement predictions

  • Aletta- 0%: Nice harmless Category 4 to start the season. However, no impacts= no retirement.
  • Bud-1%: Another Category 4. Made landfall in Baja, but didn’t do much. It’s staying.
  • Carlotta-2%: Like Bud, it caused some impacts to land. Still, also like Bud, it’s staying.
  • Daniel-0%: Well, it existed. That’s about all I can say.
  • Emilia-0%: Ehhhh.
  • Fabio-0%: Was a nice system to look at for a few days.
  • Gilma-0%: Absolutely not.
  • Hector- 0%: Absolutely amazing storm, and my favorite of the year so far. Became a really strong Cat 4, and lasted quite a while, not harming anyone in the process. First storm to cross all three Northern Pacific basins since Genevieve. It may be upgraded to a Cat 5 in post analysis, but since neither Jose or Joaquin were, I won’t hold my breath. No impacts doesn’t get it a chance at retirement, but I’ll give him this (⭐️) for being such a great storm.
  • Ileana- 5%: Unfortunately, I have to revise my previous prediction. Ileana did manage to cause 4 deaths before becoming lunch for Hurricane John. Still, I don’t see her going anywhere.
  • John- 0%: Other than completely murdering another storm, John didn’t do much. He’s staying.
  • Kristy- 0%: Didn’t do much. Staying
  • Lane- Currently active Could affect Hawaii.

SHP's Grades and Retirement Predictions 

Intensity colors: TD, TS, C1, C2, C3, C4, C5

Grade colors: S, A+, A, A-, B, C, D, E, F, Failippe

  • One-E: Grade: E - Retirement: 0% - Forgettable TD, only saved from an F by being a pre-season storm.
  • Aletta: Grade: A+ - Retirement: 0% - Defied predictions by exploding into a Cat. 4, showing Adrian how it's done.
  • Bud: Grade: A - Retirement: 0.1% - Did what Aletta did except slightly weaker and with minor land impacts.
  • Carlottta: Grade: D - Retirement: 1% - Hovered around the Mexican coast for a while, but impacts were thankfully not all that major.
  • Danfail: Grade: F - Retirement: 0% - Historic major turned epic fail. Dissapointing.
  • Emilia: Grade: D - Retirement: 0% - Not much to say about this one.
  • Fabio: Grade: C - Retirement: 0% - Decent storm, but just barely missed Cat. 3 status despite predictions. Grade will go up if he attains major status on post-analysis.
  • Failma: Grade: Failippe - Retirement: 0% - It could've been just another forgettable TD, but it had to go and steal the name Gilma in the worst way possible. What a disgrace.
  • Nine-E: Grade: F - Retirement: 0% - It existed. NEXT!
  • Hector: Grade: S - Retirement: 0% - Oh man, what a storm. It spent the longest consecutive time as a major in the history of the E Pac, racked up the 4th highest ACE in the history of the E Pac, crossed through 3 basins, and left Hawaii alone. Cat. 5 or no, Hector is definitely deserving of my highest grade, and is now one of my personal favorite storms of all time.
  • Ileana: Grade D(inner) - Retirement: 4% - Tried to become a hurricane, but her time was cut short by her big brother John. Unfortunately, she caused the deaths of 4 people.
  • John: Grade: C(annibal) - Retirement: 0% - Missed major status, but I consider that karma for consuming Ileana. Not cool, John.
  • Kristy: Grade: D - Retirement: 0% - Came closer to hurricane status than Ileana, but still failed.
  • Lane: Grade: ??? - Retirement: ??? - Currently weakening, looks like Hawai'i is safe.

^This is Hector's peak intensity while it was located east of the Central Pacific, and the CPac TCR on Hector will come out separately, probably a long time after the NHC's EPac proper report. In the CPac, Hector's operational peak was 155 mph and 936 mbars, and lasted until August 13 while east of the dateline.

^^Hector and Lane didn't dissipate on these dates, but moved into the CPac (and later WPac for Hector) basins.

Already we have our first TCR, its for One-E. Only change was that the pressure was raised to 1007, and One-E's duration was decreased by one day. --Roy25 23:11, July 17, 2018 (UTC)

Aletta is out. No changes happened to her though. Ryan1000 14:17, August 1, 2018 (UTC)
do you want to put speeds in km/h for us non-americans or not --🅱ust 🅱hut 🅱p 🅱lready 😂😂👌🏿👌🏿💯💯 (talk) 17:50, August 8, 2018 (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply, but the table wouldn't look very neat if we put in the winds in knots, mph and km/hr, since it's only so wide and every storm would then have 2 or more rows for it. It's better with just 1 row per storm the way it is. Ryan1000 14:20, August 11, 2018 (UTC)

Also, changed a few things on Hector, since the EPac and CPac TCR's will be separate, and Hector's peak while east of the CPac was lower. Ryan1000 16:08, August 14, 2018 (UTC)
