Well James Franco from the movie, Pineapple Express, you thought wrong. The 2016 Hurricane Season doesn't start till June 1st (May 15th for the Eastern Pacific) and already, activity has sprung up in the Central Pacific.
Tropical Storm Pali has just been named by the Central Pacific Hurricane Center in Hawaii as of the 11:00 advisory, Hawaiian Time. Making this the third storm to form in the month of January, not to mention, the unofficial start of the 2016 Hurricane Season. Last time a storm formed that early in the season was in 1992 when Ekeka formed, which turned into a Category 3 Hurricane. Will Pali become like Ekeka in the distant future?
The answer is NO. Because the Hurricane Center projects that Pali will remain as a Tropical Storm as it moves North Northwest by Friday Morning and spiraling towards the Southwestern direction by the time next week rolls in. Of course, the storm is expected to weaken by the time it moves south. And speaking of an early start.
Something sinister is roaming in the Atlantic between the Carolinas and Bermuda. The National Hurricane Center in Miami is giving this system a thirty percent chance of this storm to develop in the next five days. It could be either a Subtropical Depression or a Subtropical Storm in the distant future. If develop into a storm, it will get the first name of the 2016 Atlantic Season, "Alex". But then again, if there's a 0-0 chance of development, then I guess Europe should be on the lookout.
