The 2011 Hurricane Season

Opening Season Preamble (1st April, 2011)

As usual, we will do our best to track all the active storms in the 2011 hurricane season, so keep checking this page regularly. Hurricane Arlene or Tropical Storm Arlene will be the first of the season when it appears, and we will be ready to track it.

Drs. Klotzbach and Gray at Colorado State issued there 2011 Hurricane Season Forecast today indicating that the above normal Atlantic Basin hurricane activity will continue for 2011. Their report cites that above normal Atlantic sea surface temperatures will likely continue on its multi-decadal high while the absence of El Nino will allow for better than average tropical numbers. Estimates are for 8 Huricanes, 3 Major Hurricanes, and 4 Tropical Storms.

Here's the list of 2011 contenders.

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'.
