The tropics have been on fire this Atlantic Hurricane season, which is very reminiscent of the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season.

The 2005 Atlantic Hurricane season and this season ran through the English Alphabet and entered into the Greek Alphabet.

The last hurricane, Delta, made landfall as a Category 2 with winds sustained at 100 mph near Creole, Louisiana. 12 miles east of where Hurricane Laura made landfall less than 6 weeks prior.

Thankfully, it has been much quieter since Delta wreaked havoc on Louisiana and made its way inland for the fourth time this season. As of now, there is only one disturbance in the tropics.

It is a tropical wave a few hundred miles east of the Windward Islands. Because of the hostile upper level winds, it only has a 20% of development through the the next 5 days.

Although, the tropics are not that active at this moment, we need to stay vigilant because the Atlantic Hurricane season isn't over until the end of November.

Stay tuned!
