North Atlantic Hurricane Season

Welcome to the third Atlantic Hurricance seasons thread! (Wow. 3rd year already) This thread will track the Atlantic Hurricane season in 2016 from small tropical depressions to category 5 super-storms (should there ever be any).

This year I will only be doing very minor updates to the main page (as not many people look at it!). Most updates will be found as separate posts I make throughout the season.

A prediction for this year by many forecasters can also be found on the bottom of this post to get a general idea of what this season could generally be like. And as we're in the UK, Ill try and track these storms even after they have turned extra-tropical and occasionally head towards the UK or Europe in general. The general season lasts from June till November, with the most active months being August and September, but outliers aren't too out of the ordinary. Enjoy.

Hitting very early in the year in January, Alex was a Category 1 Hurricane that mostly stayed out in the Atlantic. It was the first Tropical storm to form in January since 1978, and only the 4th known on record, and the 2nd January Hurricane formation known on record.

Tropical Storm Bonnie was a storm off the coast of the United States. It was the first land falling storm of this years season as a Tropical Storm (39-73mph). It brought heavy rain to parts of Southern Carolina and some surrounding states before exiting out into the Atlantic and fizzling out.

Tropical Storm Colin is (as of the 5th of June), a storm off the coast of the United States. It is expected to make landfall in Northern Florida late Monday/Early Tuesday, tracking across Georgia before exiting into the Atlantic, tracking up the side of the most South-eastern states.
