The 2008 Hurricane Season

Opening Season Preamble (21st April, 2008)

I've been looking at the Intellicast west Atlantic map recently to try and spot any signs of tropical activity, but, as yet, there is no sign of anything. The tropics around the west African coast do not look favourable for the time being due to a high pressure system in the mid Atlantic that is allowing a more westerly airstream to it's south.

Last year we had an early sub-tropical storm that formed off the east coast of Florida on the 9th of May - sub-tropical storm Andrea - so that's what we'll be looking for again this season. As usual, we will do our best to track all the active storms in the 2008 hurricane season, so keep checking this page regularly. Hurricane Arthur or Tropical Storm Arthur will be the first of the season when it appears, and we will be ready to track it.

Here's hoping the season will not be too active, despite the pundits forecasting a very active year.

Here's the list of 2008 contenders.

Arthur, Bertha, Cristobal, Dolly, Edouard, Fay, Gustav, Hanna, Ike, Josephine, Kyle, Laura, Marco, Nana, Omar, Paloma, Rene, Sally, Teddy, Vicky, Wilfred


2008 Hurricane and Tropical Storm News

NOTE: Latest news is always at the top, earlier news below.


The 2008 Hurricane Season had been quite slow despite the experts forecasting a very active season some months ago. But now that has changed since Gustav came along, quickly followed by Hanna, Ike and Josephine all at the end of August. We had storms up to Tropical Storm Nana. We had four hurricanes including Bertha, Dolly, Hanna and Kyle. Then there were Gustav, Ike, Omar, and Paloma, all of which became major hurricanes.

The Navymil watch developing tropical systems, and perform reconnaisance on them. This development cycle goes through two initial stages - the investigation cycle followed by the reporting cycle.

In the investigation cycle, systems are given a codename beginning at 90, then progessing through 91, 92 etc. for subsequent systems. The L suffix indicates an Atlantic system, the .Invest indicates an investigation. When they get to 99 they start back at the beginning.

During the reporting cycle, when the system has been deemed to have reached tropical depression status, codes 00 to 09 are used with a character-based name suffix.

Once the system has become a tropical depression the National Hurricane Center begins reporting it, and they produce their first forecast and map. The NHC notation for the depression is to use the name 'Tropical Depression ' followed by an uppercase, character-based value. The first depression of the season becomes ONE. By the sixth depression they are using the notation 'Tropical Depression SIX'.
