Welp, it's that time of year again, ladies and gentlemen. The start of the 2016 Hurricane Season...in the Eastern Pacific of course. You think I'm talking about the Atlantic, but apparently not. The 2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season doesn't start till another two weeks, but the 2016 Eastern Pacific Hurricane Season starts today and lasts till November 30th. All and all, the world when it comes to the tropics is really quiet...well...not really.
It's the first day of the Pacific Hurricane Season and already, a disturbance in the ocean. A cluster of clouds ready to develop. This has a ten percent chance to develop according to the National Hurricane Center. Moving West at 15 mph and pretty sure this won't have a chance to develop in the next few days. And the strange thing is, this year so far is the quietest in the tropics worldwide. And if we get pass May 19th with no storm development, it would beat out 1914. Anyway, the season has begun, despite that we already have a storm back in January, even though it's a Central Pacific storm. So here are the names for the 2016 season in the Eastern Pacific.
And if we do get a storm, and let's hope it's not the one that has a ten percent chance, we get the "A" named storm for the 2016 season, which will be Agatha. And...we're NOT gonna reach that far for the Pacific because a La Nina is now being called for the upcoming season, meaning less storms for the Pacific and more storms in the Atlantic. I think the farthest we can go for the list for a below to near average season is probably around the "I" or "J" named storm, which is either Ivette or Javier. So that's about for the Tropical Update for the day, the Hurricane Season has started for the Eastern Pacific. So tell me what you think? Are you prepared for the upcoming Hurricane Season? Tell me what you think in the comments below.
