Early on October 6, Karen weakened to a tropical depression, and several hours later disintegrated into an open trough off the coast of Louisiana. [15] Finally, on August 8, NOAA issued its second and final outlook for the season, predicting 13 to 19 named storms, six to nine hurricanes, and three to five major hurricanes; these numbers were down slightly from its May outlook. Interaction with a mid- to upper-level low pressure forced the wave to split, with the southern portion spawning Tropical Storm Octave in the eastern Pacific Ocean on October 12. (The Miami Herald, Shannon Kaestle) The weakening of the THC was possibly the result of lowered ocean salinity and a decrease in North Atlantic Deep Water formation. [62] Most of the destruction has been attributed to Manuel, but Ingrid was directly responsible for at least 23 deaths and $20 billion pesos (MXN, US$1.5 billion) in losses. [45] Impact from the storm in Mexico was most severe in Veracruz, where 13 people were killed by landslides: nine in Yecuatla, three in Tuxpan, and one in Atzalán. Based on satellite data,[41] the wave was upgraded to a tropical depression at 18:00 UTC on July 23 while located about 175 mi (282 km) south of the Cape Verde Islands, and further intensified into Tropical Storm Dorian by 06:00 UTC the following day. Wind shear and dry air caused the storm to weaken beginning early on October 4. Early on September 17, the storm weakened to a tropical depression, shortly before degenerating into an area of low pressure. It is only calculated for full advisories on specific tropical and subtropical systems reaching or exceeding wind speeds of 39 mph (63 km/h). [29] In Florida, the storm brought heavy rainfall to some areas, causing localized flooding. - The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals advises people to avoid contact with floodwaters following a hurricane or tropical storm. The low then moved across Honduras,[32] where heavy rainfall triggered flooding that damaged 60 homes and affected 300 people. CSU stated that there was a 72% chance of at least one major hurricane impacting any stretch of the United States coastline; the chances of a major hurricane hitting the East Coast and Gulf Coast were 48% and 47%, respectively. At 00:00 UTC on October 1, Jerry attained its peak intensity with sustained winds of 50 mph (80 km/h) and a minimum barometric pressure of 1,005 mbar (29.7 inHg). Hurricane and tropical storm watches were posted from southeast Louisiana to Florida and some oil and gas platforms in the storm's projected path were being secured and evacuated. [59] Later on September 10, the storm's deepening briefly halted as it curved northwest in response to a developing mid-level trough over the central Atlantic. Tracking westward, the wave reached the Caribbean Sea and became increasingly ill-defined while in the central Caribbean. As evidenced by scatterometer wind data, the northern portion moved north-northwestward and transitioned into a low-pressure area early on September 28. It was also the first season since 1968 with no storms of at least Category 2 intensity on the Saffir–Simpson hurricane wind scale. The cyclone then completed a clockwise loop in response to the blocking area of high pressure to its north that would have otherwise caused the storm to move towards mainland Europe. Heavy rains in many areas triggered flooding that washed out roads and damaged homes. [37], The storm brought heavy rainfall to the Lesser Antilles. The most intense tropical cyclone—Hurricane Humberto—peaked with maximum sustained winds of 90 mph (140 km/h) on September 11, which is a Category 1 on the Saffir–Simpson hurricane wind scale. The probabilities of a major hurricane hitting the Gulf Coast and East Coast were well above average. [79] Had the storm been recognized operationally, the storm would have received the name Nestor. Strong winds on the island downed trees branches, caused minor infrastructural damage, and left minor power outages. *Jeff Striegle calls in and recaps Phoenix *Lucky Dog picks *Lapped Traffic Fantasy Winner Joe Huson! Associated Press, Forecasters were still expecting it to bring significant rain and potential flooding to low-lying areas. Thank you to everyone that has followed and listened! [43], On August 10, a tropical wave emerged into the Atlantic Ocean from the west coast of Africa. In early December, an upper-level trough became trapped in steering currents near the British Isles. The cyclone then moved west-southwest under the influence of an anticyclone. The system moved rapidly westward under the influence of a subtropical ridge. Mexico, where Hurricane Ingrid, Tropical Depression Eight, and tropical storms Barry and Fernand all made landfall, was the hardest hit; Ingrid alone caused at least 32 deaths and $1.5 billion (2013 USD) in damage. After marked oscillations in intensity on September 12, Gabrielle finally succumbed to wind shear midway between Bermuda and Cape Cod. Six hours later, the depression moved northward and strengthened into Tropical Storm Gabrielle. At 00:00 UTC on September 15, Humberto regenerated into a tropical storm about 1,095 mi (1,762 km) southwest of Ponta Delgada, Azores. Damage was reported in 19 municipalities, mostly in northern and central Veracruz. [16] On June 3, CSU issued its first mid-season prediction for the remainder of the year. The depression moved steadily westward and intensified into Tropical Storm Humberto early on September 9. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Karen was about 430 miles (695 km) south of the mouth of the Mississippi River on Thursday afternoon and had maximum sustained winds of 65 mph (100 kph). No coastal advisories are in effect. The southern portion of the wave continued westward, while the northern portion moved slowly west-northwestward and developed into a surface trough after interacting with a second mid to upper level low. Winds toppled trees and power lines, blocking several roads. Fernand weakened to a tropical depression later on August 26, hours before dissipating. [68], However, early on September 30, the depression strengthened into Tropical Storm Jerry while curving eastward. Weather Underground provides tracking maps, 5-day forecasts, computer models, satellite imagery and detailed storm statistics for tracking and forecasting Tropical Storm Karen Tracker. On April 10, Colorado State University (CSU) issued its first forecast for the season, calling for a potentially hyperactive season with 18 named storms, nine hurricanes, four major hurricanes, and an ACE index of 165. [58] The vessel eventually reached São Tomé and Príncipe, though that country's port institute and coast guard denied her entrance. [52], The remnant system was monitored for regeneration. *I recap the top 10 LuckyDog & LapDown picks of 2020! [2][17] NOAA typically categorizes a season as either above-average, average, or below-average based on the cumulative ACE Index, but the number of tropical storms, hurricanes, and major hurricanes within a hurricane season are considered occasionally as well.

Collectively, these factors worked to suppress tropical cyclogenesis. Tropical Storm Karen is a tropical storm which began developing in the Atlantic Ocean in September of 2019. [21] However, Gray and Klotzbach were able to issue predictions for the 2014 season. The following table lists all of the storms that have formed in the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. Tropical Storm Karen is poised to become the first named storm to hit the United States this season. [16], With 13 tropical storms, two hurricanes, and no major hurricanes,[18] activity fell far below the predictions. Humberto then weakened to a subtropical depression early the next day, about 1,120 mi (1,800 km) south of Ponta Delgada. And why we should keep forecasting it...", "Colo.

[61] Relief agencies distributed food and other aid to the hardest hit areas,[65][66] though in Tamaulipas, residents had to rely on assistance from the local Gulf Cartel. The most significant effects were in Veracruz where hundreds of homes were inundated. [39] In the Dominican Republic, a firefighter from the community of Maimon was killed as he was swept away by flood waters while attempting to clear a clogged storm drain. Late on September 4, a tropical depression developed about 115 mi (185 km) south-southeast of Puerto Rico. An approaching mid- to upper-level cyclone began to capture Humberto, causing the storm to decelerate between late on September 16 and early on September 17. The 2013 Atlantic hurricane season was a well below average Atlantic hurricane season and the first since 1994 with no major hurricanes. Despite strong wind shear and an abundance of dry air, the storm strengthened while initially heading north-northeastward, before turning northeastward later that day. Dr. Rick Knabb, the director of the National Hurricane Center looks at where Karen might be heading. Twelve days later, Tropical Storm Barry formed in the northwestward Caribbean Sea. Initially, the depression moved slowly due to weak steering currents. Low wind shear in the area allowed the system to transition into a subtropical storm on December 5 on 00:00 UTC. [47] In Boca del Río, flooding stranded people at a shopping plaza. Tropical Storm KAREN Advisory Archive. Shortly thereafter, vigorous deep convection developed, allowing the storm to deepen further. The weak THC also resulted in slightly stronger trade winds and less wind convergence and rainfall in the Intertropical Convergence Zone, with an increase in upper-level zonal winds and higher environmental air pressures. Downtown Miami is engulfed in storm clouds as Tropical Storm Karen heads toward Florida's Panhandle on Thurdsay, Oct. 3, 2013. Despite southwesterly vertical shear, deep convection began to increase by late on October 20. [44], On August 25, a tropical storm warning was posted for the Gulf Coast of Mexico from Veracruz northward to Tampico. The storm rapidly weakened and degenerated into a remnant low early on June 21. Warnings were canceled north of Barra de Nautla, Veracruz early on August 26, and discontinued entirely after Fernand weakened to a tropical depression. [13] A month later, TSR lowered its numbers to 15 named storms, seven hurricanes, and three major hurricanes. In Dominica, several mudslides were reported. [57], At 12:00 UTC on September 11, Humberto reached hurricane status while turning northward. [nb 1] It was a well below average season for both hurricanes and major hurricanes but it was a slightly above average season for named storms. Tropical Storm Karen (2013) Storm Active: October 3-6 On September 28, a tropical disturbance formed in the southern Caribbean sea, and began to track slowly northwestward. [5], Meanwhile, on April 8, Weather Services International (WSI) issued its first forecast for the hurricane season. Later on October 1, a blocking high pressure ridge briefly impeded the storm's northeastward motion, but it resumed moving in that direction by the following day. read. Mexico, where Hurricane Ingrid, Tropical Depression Eight, and tropical storms Barry and Fernand all made landfall, was the hardest hit; Ingrid alone caused at least 32 deaths and $1.5 billion (2013 USD) in damage. There were 10 tornadoes,[28] the worst of which touched down in The Acreage. Over the next couple of days, the trough associated with the disturbance became much better defined, but the convection associated with the system remained disorganized. Make sure you subscribe and set to auto download! *The 2020 Lapped Traffic Awards show with special guests! The center’s tracking map forecasts Karen will make landfall as a strong tropical storm near the Florida-Alabama line early Oct. 6. The low persisted for a few days, until it degenerated into an open trough on October 26. After initially moving westward toward Veracruz, the storm turned northeastward away from the coast. According to NOAA and CSU, the average Atlantic hurricane season between 1981 and 2010 contained roughly 12 tropical storms, six hurricanes, three major hurricanes, and an accumulated cyclone energy (ACE) index of 66–103 units. Karen changed course again, and is now back on a north-northwest heading at 10 mph. Damage and deaths include totals while the storm was extratropical, a wave, or a low, and all of the damage figures are in 2013 USD. [40] Overall, the storm caused less than $10 million in damage. Storm clouds roll in from the Gulf of Mexico in Gulf Shores, Alabama, as weakening Tropical Storm Karen approaches landfall October 5, 2013. The first tropical cyclone of this hurricane season, Andrea, developed on June 5, while the final cyclone, an unnamed subtropical storm, dissipated on December 7. Thank you to everyone that has followed and listened! Offshore, the freighter Rotterdam went missing with a crew of six amid 10-to-16-foot (3 to 5 m) swells. Tropical Cyclone Forecast Verification; Atlantic Current Season Summary; E. Pacific Current Season Summary; C. Pacific Current Season Summary; NHC News Archive; Product & Service Announcements; Other Archives: HURDAT, Track Maps, Marine Products, and more About. [61] The combined impacts of hurricanes Ingrid and Manuel affected two-thirds of Mexico, killing 192 people and causing $75 billion pesos (MXN, US$5.7 billion) in damage. At 04:45 UTC, the storm made landfall near Zempoala, Veracruz, at the same intensity. Throughout the season, NOAA and the United States Air Force Reserve flew a total of 45 reconnaissance missions over the Atlantic basin, totaling 435 hours; this was the lowest number of flight hours since 1966. [29] In the area, five tornadoes were spawned,[28] one of which damaged three homes. It moved northward and became co-located with an upper-level low. The system moved westward over the next several days, moving into the Caribbean on September 25. In September, four tropical cyclones formed, three of which strengthened into tropical storms; two of those reached hurricane status. The depression moved northeastward and initially struggled to intensify due to the presence of dry mid-level air. [18], The season's activity was reflected with an accumulated cyclone energy (ACE) rating of 36,[27] well below the 1981–2010 median of 92,[22] and the lowest value since 1994. This resulted in a continuation of the spring weather pattern over the Atlantic Ocean, with strong vertical wind shear, reduced mid-tropospheric moisture, and high atmospheric stability. Published on Oct 4, 2013. Throughout the year, only two storms—Humberto and Ingrid—reached hurricane intensity; this was the lowest seasonal total since 1982. Brian McNoldy at the University of Miami noted several reasons why NOAA should not cease seasonal predictions, including the variability of hurricane seasons and the value of supplementing climatology with seasonal forecasts. [57], A tropical wave spawned an area of low pressure in the Bay of Campeche early on September 12. [46] In the city of Veracruz, heavy rainfall flooded roads, while downed trees caused power outages. The cyclone then turned eastward in weak westerly low- to mid-level flow. The following list of names was used for named storms that formed in the North Atlantic in 2013. A tropical depression formed around 12:00 UTC that day, about 40 mi (64 km) north-northeast of Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz. http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/ A few hours later, the storm weakened slightly and made landfall near Steinhatchee, Florida. Graphics Archive. [55] Record-breaking rains in Mexico City, falling at rates of 3.3 in (84 mm) per hour, caused significant flooding. On April 10, 2014, at the 36th session of the RA IV hurricane committee, the World Meteorological Organization retired the name Ingrid from its rotating name lists due to the number of deaths and amount of damage it caused, and it will not be used again for another Atlantic hurricane. Further, neither hurricane exceeded Category 1 intensity for the first time since 1968. [60][62] The two storms produced approximately 5.7 trillion cubic feet (160 billion m3) of rainwater, equivalent to the combined volume of every reservoir in Mexico.
