Over on the hurricane thread, Alkemi requested that I accumulate the firsts we have attained over this active hurricane season, so I went over it and accumulated all the firsts that jumped out at me... and adding the new information...

So here they are... updated to include Alpha... and with 5 weeks left in the season and with no slowing down, I expect that we will see more...


2005 Atlantic Basin Hurricane Firsts

Thu Jun 09, 2005 whereas it is not a hurricane now nor is it expected to become one, the first named Tropical Storm of the Atlantic basin is churning it's way towards the mainland...

this is the first time in history that there have been four named storms before July 6...

Hurricane Dennis... Earliest Cat 4 ever...

five named storms before July 15...

Hurricane Emily... 7/14/05 she's now a cat 3 with max sustained winds of 115 mph... first time ever in meterological history that there have been two cat 3s before August... cat 4... first time ever 2 Cat 4's before august...

TS Franklin... 7/22/05 earliest F storm ever

TS Gert... 7/25/05 earliest G storm ever...

TS Harvey... 8/03/05 as with the majority of the other storms this season, this is the EARLIEST ever 8th named tropical storm...

TS Irene... 8/07/05 cuz, it's the earliest formed ninth named storm EVER...

TS Katrina... 8/24/05 earliest K storm ever... earliest Cat 5 ever... 907mb...

TS Lee... 8/31/05

9/07/05 earliest ever 15 named storms...

Hurricane Maria... 9/02/05
Hurricane Nate ...
Hurricane Ophelia
TS Philippe... 9/18/05

Hurricane Rita... 9/18/05 earliest R storm ever... Hurricane status 9/20/05... Cat 5 9/21/05

Hurricane Stan... 10/02 earliest S storm ever...
TS Tammy... 10/05/05 earliest T storm ever
Hurricane Vince... 10/09/05 First "V" named storm, earliest 20th named system since they didn't name them in 1933 the last time there was 21 tropical systems... First Tropical System to ever hit Spain

Hurricane Wilma... 10/17/05 earliest 21st storm, first ever "W" named storm... hurricane status 10/18/05... 10/18/05... 892mb... cat 5... first time ever 3 Cat 5s in one year... 10/19/05 lowest pressure ever recorded in atlantic basin... 882mb with a teeny tiny 2 mile in diameter eye that wobbles when it moves forward, kind of like a camshaft in a souped up car... the experts on the weather channel said that that was a first for them...

21 named tropical systems in the Atlantic Basin ties the record for most named systems in one season set in 1933. Attaining hurricane status ties with 1969 as the most hurricanes in one season...

More to come? no doubt...

And yes there certainly was more to come...

Tropical Storm Alpha... 10/22/05 becoming the 22nd named storm of this season breaking the previous record set in 1933...

And when Huricane Wilma made landfall as a Category Three storm, it was the first time we have had four major hurricanes make landfall in the USA in the same year...

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd... There's still 5 weeks left in the season...

Got your kit restocked?

with the formation of Tropical Storm Beta we now have another first...

First time that there has ever been 23 named systems... and I guess, that by default, this would also be the earliest 23rd named storm...

Did I mention that Beta became a major hurricane before making landfall? That's seven majors so far this year... (not a first, there have been 8... back in 1950)

We have Tropical Depression 27... a new first... which became Tropical Storm Gamma... also a new first...

So many firsts...

I wonder what next year will be like...

Got ark?
