Atlantic storms presenting themselves early this year

Atlantic storms presenting themselves early this year

Since the weather satellite era began in the 1960's, Arlene is only the second named storm known to form in the Atlantic basin during the month of April. The National Hurricane Center said Arlene was expected to "become absorbed by a large extratropical low and dissipate" later Friday.

Now there's Tropical Storm Arlene.

According to the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory, there has only been one April tropical cyclone in the Atlantic from 1851 to 2016.

Now, if you're scratching your head and saying, "Burt doesn't the hurricane season start in June!?" - you're right, it does.

Clark said shutting down the project would hurt the province. "[Clark] promised unicorns in everyone's backyards", said Weaver. On the Site C dam, Horgan has vowed to review the project, while Weaver said the Green Party would halt the project.

It may be April, but there's already a tropical storm roaming the open Atlantic Ocean. It wasn't surprising that it developed enough to become Sub-Tropical Depression 1 on Wednesday morning.

So, is this a sign of how the 2017 Hurricane Season might play out? Some of the most active seasons on record with major hurricanes making landfall in the United States didn't have named storms until August. Before satellites, tropical storms this of year would have been almost impossible to detect. "The only exception is if we get tropical cyclone activity in the deep tropics prior to August 1". In fact, storms have formed before June 1st in four of the last six years. The 2016 season got a jump-start when Hurricane Alex formed January 14.

Tropical Storm Bonnie followed Alex's early lead, forming May 28.
