    Watching Forrest Gump

    September 25, 2014 by HurricaneMaker99

    ...and I found out that Hurricane Carmen played a role in Forrest's in-film success! I won't mention how Carmen helped because I don't want to spoil it for anybody - look it up on Wikipedia if you must find out and can't wait to watch the movie ;D

    I'm pleasantly surprised to see this underdog of retired hurricanes get some pop culture kudos. Just figured I'd share that with you all.

    I have never seen the NHEM suffer such a widespread power outage for tropical cyclones. The Atlantic has had six storms, which is a respectable amount, but no hurricanes. EPAC is doing better; they're sorely behind on major hurricanes, with none yet, but they've already had 13 storms, which is the fastest clip I can remember, of which 6 became hurricanes. WPAC is the worst of them all. Out of 17 JMA named storms, only 2 have officially become typhoons (5 if you count Rumbia, Pewa, and Trami, which were upgraded by JTWC but not JMA). 2 out of 17!!! Even the 2007 and 2011 Atlantic seasons did better than that! Does anyone know why we're lacking so severely in TC intensity throughout the NHEM?

    June activity

    I just realized that this year was the second in a row where the Atlantic had two named storms in June; 2012 had Chris and Debby, and this year had Andrea and Barry. Has this ever happened before?

    Mine would be last year's Atlantic season:

    • It was very busy, which gave us plenty of systems to track
    • Most of the strong storms were well-behaved (especially Danielle and Julia, though Earl counts since he wasn't so bad, despite scaring the sh!t out of 50+ million East Coasters, myself included)
    • Compared to the total amount of storms, the amount of naughty ones (Alex, Igor, Karl, Matthew, and Tomas; I'm looking at you guys) was relatively small
    • Number of fails (Bonnie, Colin, Fiona, and especially Gaston) was also relatively small
    • First time since 1998 when at least three hurricanes were simultaneously active (Igor, Julia, and Karl on September 16)
    • October just ruled, with five hurricanes (the most since 1870, IIRC), Paula and Richard just being …
