The 2010 Hurricane Season

Opening Season Preamble (11th March, 2010)

As usual, we will do our best to track all the active storms in the 2010 hurricane season, so keep checking this page regularly. Hurricane Alex or Tropical Storm Alex 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 another very active year.

Here's the list of 2010 contenders.

This system has become much better organized this afternoon and evening...and thunderstorm activity has become more concentrated near the center. Two noaa reconnaissance aircraft are currently conducting a research mission in and around the disturbance...and information received so far suggests that a tropical depression may be forming. Environmental conditions are conducive for further development and if additional organization continues...then forecast advisories will be initiated later tonight or Thursday morning...which would require that tropical storm watches or warnings be issued for portions of the coastal regions of central and lower Texas and northeastern Mexico. There is a high chance...80 percent...of this system becoming a tropical cyclone.

Shower activity has become a little more concentrated this morning...and surface pressures are falling. Upper-level winds are gradually becoming more conducive for development...and the system is likely to become a tropical depression before it reaches the Yucatan peninsula in a couple of days. There is a high chance...70 percent...of this system becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. An air force reconnaissance plane is scheduled to investigate this disturbance later today to determine if a tropical cyclone has formed.

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'.
