Tropical Storm Don 17 - 18 July 2017. [4] [136], A broad low pressure area developed along a stationary front well west of the Azores on October 3. Tropical Storm Cindy was the first tropical cyclone to make landfall in Louisiana since Hurricane Isaac in 2012. Tropical Depression Six developed at 18:00 UTC on July 30 about 165 mi (266 km) west-northwest of St. Petersburg, Florida. A light steering pattern caused the storm to emerge into the Gulf of Mexico on August 28, but wind shear only allowed for slight re-intensification. [45] The season ultimately featured three storms that produced an ACE value above 40 units, the first occurrence on record. 1 Original report date 2 April 2018. After much of the convection diminished, the depression degenerated into a tropical wave late on July 7. Storm Activity: Oct 27, 2017 - Oct 29, 2017 . By September 16, the system curved northward along the western periphery of a central Atlantic ridge. However, they stressed on the uncertainty that the El Niño–Southern Oscillation could be in a warm-neutral phase or weak El Niño conditions by the peak of the season. Six hours later, the depression intensified into Tropical Storm Maria. Tropical Storm Philippe - October 28-29, 2017. Most meteorological organizations rate the intensity of a storm by this figure, so the lower the minimum pressure of the storm, the more intense or "stronger" it is considered to be. [68], Following the classification of Tropical Storm Emily, Florida Governor Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for 31 counties to ensure residents were provided with the necessary resources. Now moving north-northeastward, Nate made a second landfall near Biloxi, Mississippi, at 05:20 UTC. It was first classified as a … [123][124] However, the mid-level remnants of the tropical cyclone became intertwined with an upper-level trough; a deep burst of convection led to a new surface circulation, and by 12:00 UTC on September 22, the system reorganized into Tropical Depression Lee. However, by September 4, intensification resumed and Irma gained Category 4 status. On July 4, TSR released their fourth forecast for the season, increasing their predicted numbers to 17 named storms, 7 hurricanes, and 3 major hurricanes, due to the fact that El Niño conditions would no longer develop by the peak of the season and the warming of sea-surface temperatures across the basin. Prior to affecting the U.S. mainland, Miami’s mayor Tomás Regalado noted on Hurricane Irma, "This is the time to talk about climate change. The names not retired from this list will be used again in the 2023 season. The storm tied the record for the costliest tropical cyclone and broke the record for most rainfall dropped by a tropical cyclone in the United States, with extreme flooding in the Houston area. [34] Harvey killed 108 people, including 107 in the United States[34][90] and one woman in Guyana who died after her house collapsed on her. About five hours later, Franklin made landfall in Vega de Alatorre, Veracruz. The storm almost entirely destroyed the island's banana crop. Tropical Storm Adrian, the earliest-known formation of a named storm in eastern Pacific proper, formed on May 9 and lasted until 10th of this month. Weakening quickly ensued, and later that day the circulation of Emily became elongated as it was downgraded to a tropical depression. Early the next day, the system re-strengthened into a Category 3 hurricane while curving northward around the edge of mid-level high over the western Atlantic. Selected pressure observations and best track minimum central pressure curve for . [79], Two people drowned due to strong rip currents produced by the hurricane: one in the Outer Banks of North Carolina and the other in Nantucket, Massachusetts. Along the coastline of the mainland United States, tropical storm-force gusts cut power to hundreds of citizens; rip currents offshore led to four deaths and numerous water rescues. [51] On the mainland, about 800 families were significantly affected in Miranda state, of whom 400 lost their homes. Three fatalities were attributed to the cyclone, one in Alabama after a boy was struck by a log pushed by waves,[55] another in Texas due to drowning,[57] and a third in Tennessee after a motorist skidded off a road and crashed into a pole. [36] The French territories of Saint Martin and Saint Barthélemy combined suffered about $4.07 billion in damage and 11 fatalities. However, land interaction began to weaken the hurricane as it approached the Gulf Coast of Mexico. In early October, Hurricane Nate became the fastest-moving tropical cyclone in the Gulf of Mexico on record and the third hurricane to strike the contiguous United States in 2017. [36] The storm's toll in the USVI included four deaths and about $2.4 billion in damage. There are no maps available for this storm. [117] Approximately 77,000 people were left without power at the height of the storm. Cindy was a large, sprawling tropical storm that formed in the Gulf of Mexico and Early the next day, the system degenerated into a remnant low, which soon became extratropical. As it started on a northerly track, Rina continued to strengthen despite strong shear and dry air intrusion, and also began to show subtropical characteristics marked by most of the deep convection and strongest winds well removed from the center. Cindy reached tropical storm strength on June 20 th in the Gulf of Mexico, south of Louisiana. The usage of the name "Don" in July garnered some attention relating to United States President Donald Trump. [71] Total damage from Emily was estimated to be near US$10 million. Tropical Storm Cindy June 2017 An area of low pressure began to organize from a tropical disturbance on June 16, 2017 in the western Caribbean Sea near the coast of Nicaragua and Honduras. 10 storms formed on April. Ahead of and during the season, several national meteorological services and scientific agencies forecast how many named storms, hurricanes, and major hurricanes will form during a season, and/or how many tropical cyclones will affect a particular country. Regardless, some outlets such as the Associated Press "poked fun" at the name and Trump. Despite an unfavorable environment, with ocean temperatures near 68 °F (20 °C) and moderate wind shear, convection coalesced near the ce… [84], Harvey originated from a tropical wave that emerged into the Atlantic from the west coast of Africa on August 12. The NHC upgraded the system to Tropical Storm Lee at 15:00 UTC on the next day, based on an increase in deep convection and an advanced scatterometer (ASCAT) pass which indicated that it was producing minimal tropical-storm-force winds. On the West Pacific, Tropical Storm Nanmadol (2017), Tropical Storm Talas (2017), Typhoon Noru (2017), Tropical Storm Kulap, Tropical Storm Sonca (2017), Tropical Storm Roke (Fabian), Typhoon Nesat (2017), Tropical Storm Haitang (Huaning) and Tropical Storm Nalgae formed. IMAGE COURTESY OF CIRA AND RAMMB. On this list is Tropical Storm Bret, a tropical storm from a low-latitude tropical wave that affected Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana,Venezuela, and Windward Islands., and Hurricane Dora (2017), that affected Southwestern Mexico. Additional slow weakening is forecast, and Irma is expected to weaken to a tropical depression by Tuesday afternoon. The season concluded with Tropical Storm Rina, which became extratropical on November 9. 88 tropical cyclones had been named by either a Regional Specialized Meteorological Center (RSMC) or a Tropical Cyclone Warning Center (TCWC). Ophelia became the easternmost major hurricane on record in the Atlantic. In addition, tropical Atlantic Ocean temperatures—previously below average in months prior to the start of the season—underwent rapid warming by late May, providing lower sea level pressures, weaker trade winds, increased mid-level moisture, and all-around a more conducive environment for above-average activity. [67] A combination of reconnaissance data and surface observations from the Windward Islands indicated that Don opened up into a tropical wave around 12:00 UTC on July 18, as it entered the eastern Caribbean Sea.

Maria reached top strength late in the day on September 18 with maximum sustained winds of 175 mph. [89] Harvey caused 36 deaths in Harris County alone, with all but three linked to freshwater flooding. By 00:00 UTC the following day, it intensified into Tropical Storm Gert. Tropical Storm Philippe was a disorganized system that developed in the western Caribbean Sea. [127] By 09:00 UTC on September 26, however, the storm attained Category 2 strength.
