However, by far the costliest, deadliest and most notable cyclone of the season was Hurricane Sandy, which formed on October 22. The outer bands of Sandy impacted the island of Bermuda, with a tornado in Sandys Parish damaging a few homes and businesses. Initially, it moved west-northwest, intensifying into Tropical Storm Nadine early on September 12. Several hours later, it made landfall near Bull Bay, Jamaica as a moderate Category 1 hurricane. Aug 25: Tropical Storm Isaac – The CFAN forecast for Tropical Storm Isaac has not changed significantly in the past 24 hours. Juni und endete am 30. [24] Initially, it was predicted by the National Hurricane Center that the depression would only strengthen slightly and then become extratropical by September 6, due to an anticipated increase in wind shear. Was 2012 the Hottest La Niña Year on Record? [22] With a total of eight tropical storms in August,[17] this ties the record set in 2004. However, only two hurricanes further intensified into major hurricanes. [30], At 2250 UTC on May 19, a ship near Alberto reported winds of 60 mph (95 km/h), indicating the storm was stronger than previously assessed. Following two pre-season storms, the CSU updated their forecast to 13 named storms, 5 hurricanes, and 2 major hurricanes, while the NOAA upped their forecast numbers to 12–17 named storms, 5–8 hurricanes, and 2–3 major hurricanes on August 9. [49] Initially, the storm posed a threat to Florida and the 2012 Republican National Convention,[51] but passed to the southwest late on August 26. Movement over the Gulf Stream and baroclinic processes caused the storm to deepen, with the storm becoming a Category 2 hurricane again at 1200 UTC on October 29. In Atlantic Canada, heavy rains fell in both Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. A cold front moving off the East Coast of the United States caused the system to turn northward and eventually northeastward by October 16, at which time it peaked with maximum sustained winds of 90 mph (150 km/h) and a barometric pressure of 969 mbar (28.6 inHg). It is tied with 1887, 1995, 2010, and 2011 for the fourth-most active Atlantic hurricane season on record, with 19 tropical storms. The storm peaked with winds of 110 mph (175 km/h) and a minimum barometric pressure of 965 mbar (28.5 inHg) on the following day, before weakening from colder ocean temperatures and increasing shear.

The New Orleans area was relatively unscathed, due to levees built after hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005. At 0000 UTC on the following day, the storm made landfall near the mouth of the Mississippi River in Louisiana with winds of 80 mph (130 km/h). It slowly organized while moving westward and crossed the Lesser Antilles between October 11 and October 12. 2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season. Late on September 5, Leslie was upgraded to a hurricane, shortly before strengthening to its peaking intensity with winds of 80 mph (130 km/h) and a minimum barometric pressure of 968 mbar (28.6 inHg). [22] Rip currents along the coast of the Florida Panhandle resulted in at least 10 lifeguard rescues at Pensacola Beach, while a portion of a store in the same city was washed away. The cyclone turned westward on September 9 and resumed weakening later that day, due to encountering wind shear generated by the outflow of nearby Hurricane Leslie. Isaac reached the Gulf of Mexico and began a strengthening trend, reaching Category 1 hurricane status on August 28. La Niña is present in this year of 2020. [25] In October, there were five tropical cyclones – Tropical Storms Oscar, Patty, and Tony – as well as Hurricanes Rafael and Sandy. Destin, FL (PRWEB) March 20, 2012 It has always been a crap shoot for a meteorologist to predict a long term forecast for hurricane development. A tropical wave emerged into the Atlantic from the west coast of Africa on October 11. By the following day, Nadine began weakening and was downgraded to a tropical storm early on September 17. In Florida Hurricane Insurance , Insurance Adjuster , Insurance Appraisal by Patricia Staebler March 28, 2012 Recently, I attended a meeting where an insurance agent made a presentation about the probability that Manatee and Sarasota Counties in Florida will be hit by a hurricane this upcoming season. The storm then curved east-northeastward and eventually northeastward, posing a threat to the Azores. Thereafter, Nadine curved westward on September 27 and northwestward on September 28. [61], Although it reached tropical storm status, the National Hurricane Center noted that Patty was "on borrowed time", as the storm was predicted to eventually succumb to unfavorable conditions. Several dynamical models (including the typically reliable European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) model) are indicating that El Niño development is relatively likely by the onset of the peak of the Atlantic hurricane season in early August. It is tied with 1887, 1995, 2010, and 2011 for the fourth-most active Atlantic hurricane season on record, with 19 tropical storms. The organization predicted 13 named storms, including 7 hurricanes, and an ACE index of 122. On September 3, the mid-level circulation of the storm split into two parts, with one portion continuing southward into the Gulf of Mexico and the other eastward over Ohio. [61] Initially, the National Hurricane Center predicted no further intensification, citing strong vertical wind shear. [72], A mid-level trough to the northwest and a ridge to the east caused the storm to curve northeastward on October 24. [37][38] In Mexico, officials reported that 85,000 people in Majahual lost power; roads were damaged elsewhere in state of Quintana Roo. While the storm was active, Alberto produced 3 to 5 ft (0.91 to 1.52 m) waves, prompting several ocean rescues. Two communities within the city of Veracruz reported street flooding. Die Atlantische Hurrikansaison 2012 beginnt offiziell am 1. [66] One fatality occurred when a woman in Guadeloupe unsuccessfully attempted to drive her car across a flooded roadway. Thereafter, it weakened back to a Category 2 hurricane later on September 6. Despite a projected track toward landfall in Louisiana or Texas, the storm headed the opposite direction, moving slowly north-northeast or northeastward. In Mexico, Helene brought moderate rains to areas previously affected by Hurricane Ernesto. Note: On January 15, 2012, NCDC announced as part of its 2012 Global Climate Report that 2012 was the warmest La Niña year on record. Damages totaled $65 billion in the United States and $68.7 billion overall, making Sandy the fifth-costliest Atlantic hurricane in recorded history, behind only Hurricane Katrina in 2005[71] and hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria in 2017. While moving north-northwestward the following day, Rafael intensified into a hurricane. [73] The name Kirk replaced Keith after the 2000 season, but was not used in 2006. Due to a further organized appearance on microwave and geostationary satellite imagery, it is estimated Tropical Depression Six formed at 1800 UTC on August 3, while located about 130 miles (210 km) south-southwest of the southernmost islands of Cape Verde. In New York, an estimated 305,000 homes were destroyed. La Niña has been linked to increased hurricane activity in the Atlantic basin, and 2011 was an above average year. The system moved slowly westward, and the associated convective activity began organizing on August 24 near Cape Verde. ... Hurricane Sandy (2012… Later that day, it transitioned into an extratropical low pressure area. A second tropical cyclone, Beryl, developed later that month. Tracking steadily west-northwestward, it slowly intensified due to only marginally favorable conditions. The La Niña-to-El Niño ratio is slightly larger for major hurricane landfalls than for all hurricane landfalls , which is also in keeping with prior research (Bove et al. [55], The depression initially moved westward before turning northwestward on August 29 in response to a weakness in the subtropical ridge. Instead, Debby weakened, and late on June 26, it was a minimal tropical storm. Tracks of Atlantic named storms during 2012… They also stated there was a lower than average chance of a major hurricane impacting the United States coastline in 2012. It moved ashore in North Florida on May 29 with winds of 65 mph (105 km/h), making it the strongest pre-season storm to make landfall in the Atlantic basin. In that country, there was 1 fatality and damage to thousands of homes, resulting in about $100 million in losses. In Central and South Florida, damage was primarily caused by tornadoes, one of which caused a fatality. The agency predicted between twelve and seventeen named storms, five to eight hurricanes, and two to three major hurricanes. After weakening to a tropical storm and moving into the Bay of Campeche, the storm struck Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz on August 9. The storm slowly acquired tropical characteristics as it tracked across warmer waters and an environment of decreasing vertical wind shear. Late on August 9, the National Hurricane Center initiated advisories on Tropical Depression Seven, while located about midway between Cape Verde and the Lesser Antilles. La Niña - or the lack of it - could mean good news when it comes to the upcoming hurricane season, said Mike Halpert, deputy director of NOAA's National Climate Prediction Center. [14], The Atlantic hurricane season officially began on June 1, 2012. Wind shear initially caused the depression to remain weak, though by August 2, it was upgraded to Tropical Storm Ernesto. The depression was steered toward the west-northwest along the southern periphery of a deep-layer subtropical ridge. Early on May 22, Alberto degenerated into a remnant area of low pressure after failing to maintain convection. After passing over Cape Verde, it moved generally west-northwestward and crossed a region of colder seas. The 2019 hurricane season was the fourth consecutive season with above normal storm activity. [65] In addition, the heavy rains led to significant crop loss. Weakening to … The latter portion interacted with an upper-level trough, which developed into a surface low pressure area on October 21. [70] Early on October 27, it briefly weakened to a tropical storm, before re-acquiring hurricane intensity later that day. The 2020 hurricane season is off to a quick start, with five tropical storms in the books as of Wednesday. The depression headed just north of due west and twelve hours later, strengthened into Tropical Storm Isaac. The storm left $750 million in damage, 54 deaths, and 21 people missing.[69]. [17] This was the first occurrence of two pre-season tropical storms in the Atlantic since 1951. The storm curved back to the northwest and briefly weakened to a Category 1 hurricane on September 8. At 2100 UTC, the storm made landfall near Steinhatchee, Florida with winds of 40 mph (65 km/h). This was the same list used in the 2006 season. An additional 587 homes were inundated after the Black Creek overflowed in Clay County. [24], A tropical wave developed into Tropical Depression Fourteen on September 10, while located about 885 miles (1,425 km) west of Cape Verde.
