Track The Tropics has been the #1 source to track the tropics 24/7 since 2013! The main goal of the site is to bring all of the important links and graphics to ONE PLACE so you can keep up to date on any threats to land during the Atlantic Hurricane Season! Hurricane Season 2022 in the Atlantic starts on June 1st and ends on November 30th. Love Spaghetti Models? Well you've come to the right place!! Remember when you're preparing for a storm: Run from the water; hide from the wind!

Hurricane Season 101

The official Atlantic Basin Hurricane Season runs from June 1st to November 30th. A tropical cyclone is a warm-core, low pressure system without any “front” attached. It develops over tropical or subtropical waters, and has an organized circulation. Depending upon location, tropical cyclones have different names around the world. The Tropical Cyclones we track in the Atlantic basin are called Tropical Depressions, Tropical Storms and Hurricanes! Atlantic Basin Tropical Cyclones are classified as follows: Tropical Depression: Organized system of clouds and thunderstorms with defined surface circulation and max sustained winds of 38 mph or less. Tropical Storm: Organized system of strong thunderstorms with a defined surface circulation and maximum sustained winds of 39-73 mph. Hurricane: Intense tropical weather system of strong thunderstorms with a well-defined surface circulation. A Hurricane has max sustained winds of 74 mph or higher!

The difference between Tropical Storm and Hurricane Watches, Warnings, Advisories and Outlooks

Warnings:Listen closely to instructions from local officials on TV, radio, cell phones or other computers for instructions from local officials.Evacuate immediately if told to do so.
  • Storm Surge Warning: There is a danger of life-threatening inundation from rising water moving inland from the shoreline somewhere within the specified area. This is generally within 36 hours. If you are under a storm surge warning, check for evacuation orders from your local officials.
  • Hurricane Warning: Hurricane conditions (sustained winds of 74 mph or greater) are expected somewhere within the specified area. NHC issues a hurricane warning 36 hours in advance of tropical storm-force winds to give you time to complete your preparations. All preparations should be complete. Evacuate immediately if so ordered.
  • Tropical Storm Warning: Tropical storm conditions (sustained winds of 39 to 73 mph) are expected within your area within 36 hours.
  • Extreme Wind Warning: Extreme sustained winds of a major hurricane (115 mph or greater), usually associated with the eyewall, are expected to begin within an hour. Take immediate shelter in the interior portion of a well-built structure.
Please note that hurricane and tropical storm watches and warnings for winds on land as well as storm surge watches and warnings can be issued for storms that the NWS believes will become tropical cyclones but have not yet attained all of the characteristics of a tropical cyclone (i.e., a closed low-level circulation, sustained thunderstorm activity, etc.). In these cases, the forecast conditions on land warrant alerting the public. These storms are referred to as “potential tropical cyclones” by the NWS. Hurricane, tropical storm, and storm surge watches and warnings can also be issued for storms that have lost some or all of their tropical cyclone characteristics, but continue to produce dangerous conditions. These storms are called “post-tropical cyclones” by the NWS. Watches: Listen closely to instructions from local officials on TV, radio, cell phones or other computers for instructions from local officials. Evacuate if told to do so.
  • Storm Surge Watch: Storm here is a possibility of life-threatening inundation from rising water moving inland from the shoreline somewhere within the specified area, generally within 48 hours. If you are under a storm surge watch, check for evacuation orders from your local officials.
  • Hurricane Watch: Huriricane conditions (sustained winds of 74 mph or greater) are possible within your area. Because it may not be safe to prepare for a hurricane once winds reach tropical storm force, The NHC issues hurricane watches 48 hours before it anticipates tropical storm-force winds.
  • Tropical Storm Watch: Tropical storm conditions (sustained winds of 39 to 73 mph) are possible within the specified area within 48 hours.
Advisories:
  • Tropical Cyclone Public Advisory:The Tropical Cyclone Public Advisory contains a list of all current coastal watches and warnings associated with an ongoing or potential tropical cyclone, a post-tropical cyclone, or a subtropical cyclone. It also provides the cyclone position, maximum sustained winds, current motion, and a description of the hazards associated with the storm.
  • Tropical Cyclone Track Forecast Cone:This graphic shows areas under tropical storm and hurricane watches and warnings, the current position of the center of the storm, and its predicted track. Forecast uncertainty is conveyed on the graphic by a “cone” (white and stippled areas) drawn such that the center of the storm will remain within the cone about 60 to 70 percent of the time. Remember, the effects of a tropical cyclone can span hundreds of miles. Areas well outside of the cone often experience hazards such as tornadoes or inland flooding from heavy rain.
Outlooks:
  • Tropical Weather Outlook:The Tropical Weather Outlook is a discussion of significant areas of disturbed weather and their potential for development during the next 5 days. The Outlook includes a categorical forecast of the probability of tropical cyclone formation during the first 48 hours and during the entire 5-day forecast period. You can also find graphical versions of the 2-day and 5-day Outlook here

    DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
    ----------------------
    At 700 AM CDT (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Bonnie was
    located near latitude 11.2 North, longitude 85.8 West. Bonnie is
    moving toward the west near 14 mph (22 km/h), and a continued
    westward motion with a gradual decrease in forward speed is expected
    later today. A west-northwestward motion is expected to begin
    tonight or on Sunday and continue into Tuesday. On the forecast
    track, Bonnie will emerge over the eastern Pacific Ocean in the
    next couple of hours. Bonnie will then move offshore of but
    parallel to the coasts of El Salvador, Guatemala, and southern
    Mexico today through Tuesday.

    Maximum sustained winds remain near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher
    gusts. Gradual strengthening is forecast after Bonnie emerges over
    the eastern Pacific later this morning and should continue through
    Tuesday.

    Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km)
    from the center.

    The estimated minimum central pressure is 1002 mb (29.59 inches).


    HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
    ----------------------
    Key messages for Tropical Storm Bonnie can be found in the
    Tropical Cyclone Discussion under AWIPS header MIATCDAT2 and WMO
    header WTNT42 KNHC.

    RAINFALL: Bonnie will continue to produce heavy rain across portions
    of Nicaragua and Costa Rica through today. The following storm total
    rainfall amounts are expected:

    Nicaragua and Costa Rica: 4 to 8 inches, localized 12 inches. This
    rainfall is expected to result in life-threatening flash flooding
    and mudslides.

    WIND: Tropical storm conditions are occurring in the Tropical
    Storm Warning area along the Caribbean coasts of Nicaragua and
    Costa Rica, and these will likely continue for several more hours.

    STORM SURGE: Water levels are expected to subside along the
    Caribbean coast of Nicaragua later this morning.

    Tropical Storm Bonnie Discussion Number 19
    NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL022022
    400 AM CDT Sat Jul 02 2022

    Overall, Bonnie's structure is holding together quite well as the
    storm moves across Central America. While the coldest cloud tops
    near the center have warmed somewhat, radar from the Nicaraguan
    Weather Service in Las Nubes shows a healthy reflectivity structure.
    In fact, after the last center fix the Air Force Reserve Hurricane
    Hunter aircraft made indicated a formative eyewall was developing
    with Bonnie, a similar signature is now also currently observed with
    Bonnie over Lake Nicaragua. Assuming there has been some weakening
    of the wind field since Bonnie began moving over land, the
    intensity is being reduced to an uncertain 35 kt for this advisory.

    Bonnie was moving just north of due west from the recon fixes last
    night, and the initial motion has been maintained at 275/14 kt. A
    strong deep-layer ridge poleward of Bonnie should continue to steer
    the cyclone west to west-northwestward for the majority of the
    forecast period after it moves offshore. This track continues to
    take Bonnie roughly parallel to the southern coast of Central
    America and Mexico. The track guidance remains in good agreement
    this cycle, and only slight changes to the forecast track were made,
    mostly a somewhat faster motion at the end of the forecast period.
    While the relatively small size of the tropical cyclone is currently
    forecast to keep the highest winds offshore, interests in coastal El
    Salvador, Guatemala, and southwestern Mexico should continue to
    monitor Bonnie's track for the next few days, as any northward track
    adjustments could require tropical storm watches for portions of
    this coastline.

    So far Bonnie's structure does not appear to be that adversely
    affected by its ongoing land interaction crossing Central America,
    perhaps because it is traversing a relatively flat gap across Lake
    Nicaragua, in between higher terrain to its north or south. However,
    one thorn in the system's short-term intensity forecast is that sea
    surface temperatures (SSTs) just offshore Nicaragua are not all that
    warm, only between 26-27 C with a very shallow depth of these
    marginally warm waters for the first 24 h or so. For this reason,
    only slow intensification is forecasted early on, which is under the
    majority of the guidance in this time frame. Afterwards, SSTs
    markedly warm to above 28 C, and vertical wind shear is expected to
    remain only light to moderate. Thus, a faster rate of
    intensification is anticipated after 36 h, and Bonnie is still
    forecast to become a hurricane in about three days. The latest
    intensity forecast has been adjusted downward in the short-term, but
    still peaks the storm as a 75-kt hurricane at the end of the
    forecast period.

    It is worth mentioning that Bonnie's low-level circulation is
    expected to survive its passage across Central America, similar to
    that of Hurricane Otto back in 2016. Thus, the system is expected to
    retain its name even after it moves into the far eastern Pacific
    later today. The intermediate advisory at 1200 UTC will be issued
    under the same Atlantic header as before. Product headers will
    change to eastern Pacific headers beginning with the next complete
    advisory at 1500 UTC, with the ATCF identifier changing from
    AL022022 to EP042022.


    KEY MESSAGES:

    1. Heavy rainfall is expected across portions of Nicaragua and
    Costa Rica today. Life-threatening flash flooding and mudslides are
    expected.

    2. Tropical storm conditions are expected along the Caribbean
    coasts of Costa Rica and Nicaragua within the Tropical Storm Warning
    areas for the next several hours, and along the Pacific coasts of
    Costa Rica and Nicaragua today.
