This event is a spin-off of CycloneRyne94's Atlantic Voting pool that you may have seen on HHW. Because there doesn't seem to be a Pacific version, I'll create it instead right here! Vote on what you think the outcome will exactly be based on the following scenarios below.
Note that I've affectionately given some hurricane names nicknames :) Anyway please place your votes and comment!Read more >
Just asking which hurricanes match the following description:
- atlantic or east pacific
- category 2 - 4
- annular (or very close to it), so must be round and tight-looking
- born 1994 - 2000 (preferably near 1998)
- eye must not take up plenty of the cloud
- fluffy, full but a defined appearance
- fluffy, soft-ish but defined eye
Thanks!Read more >
Just woke up from a 7 hour nap (it's 12am on a Friday night where I should be off to the clubs with friends but I'm too tired to do anything ahaha) after getting no sleep last night due to a group assignment... ah well.... Easter break is finally here though!
Anyway back on topic, I keyed in some official hurricane names designated by the NHC into Randy Olson's Name Age Calculator which predicts the year of birth of someone given their first name alone using a special algorithm based on Social Security records in the US. Some results were as expected and others were a little bit more shocking.
Beatriz - 1989
Calvin - 1970
Dora - 1954
Eugene - 1953
Fernanda - 2006
Greg - 1963
Hilary - 1984
Irwin - 1948
Jova - N/A
Kenneth - 1961
Lidia - …

HO HO HO TO Y'ALL ;) I hope you're all having a very merry Christmas!
I went through the 2017-18 Western European Windstorm name list (led by Météo-France), and the 2018-19 SWIO name list. Here's what I've found:
Notice any similarity? Well, it looks like Météo-France directly plucked the names "Irene", "Jose" and "Katia" directly from the 2011 Atlantic hurricane names! Not to mention, in the correct sequential order too! "Leo" and "Marina" seem to be eerily similar names to "Lee" and "Maria". Other names that Météo-France seemed to pick out from other hurricane naming lists include "Ana" (Atlantic 2021), "David" (Retired Atlantic 1979), "Felix" (Retired Atlantic 2007), "Olivia" (EPAC 2018) and "Rosa" (EPAC 2018). As well as France, Spain an…
