2020 Tropical Season Outlook
« on: April 03, 2020, 10:39:57 AM »
An active season is expected this year.

A total of 16 named storms, eight hurricanes and four major hurricanes are expected this season.
This is above the 30-year average of 12 named storms, six hurricanes and three major hurricanes.

We can't take any natural disasters of any kind for at least the next year. We need these storms to remain fish storms. Also, all fault lines need to sit still.

We have a chance at the season's first tropical or subtropical storm forming off the southeast coast in the next few days. If it evolves into a named system it will be Arthur.

Hey all, when was the last time we had inland tropical storm warnings/advisories in our area....I seem to remember early to mid 2000's we had one here in middle Tennessee I think maybe Katrina? I was fascinated by it when it happened

Katrina appears to be the last time on an almost state wide basis, west TN had some tropical storm warnings from Dennis during the summer of 2005. Appears TN had a bunch of Tropical Storm warnings and damage in Sept 16 and 17 2004, but can't really find what system that was associated with

Had some Topical Depression warnings in west TN from Ike in 2008 as well

Irma (2017) had Franklin, Lincoln, and Moore Counties under a Tropical Storm Warning.

I could've sworn I was under one when Opal came through Chattanooga in 95'.

NOAA is saying that what is now Invest 90L off the coast of Florida has an 80% chance of development in the next 48 hours.  It looks like it will stay a fish storm, but these can cause rough surf and offshore conditions for the southeast coast, which will be a concern for those who are venturing out for vacations right now.

Parts of NC are now under a tropical storm warning for impacts from Arthur even though it is projected to stay offshore. That puts our first mainland tropical system impact this year before the official start of hurricane season.

I dont keep up with tropical weather very well but it seems the last few years there is often a tropical system close to Memorial wknd.  Then after that it goes dead awhile it seems

Long range GFS has a tropical storm/low end hurricane coming off the Yucatan Peninsula and landfalling along the Florida west coast.
