Tropical Update – Humberto Becomes Season’s First Hurricane


Hurricane flags

Tropical Storm Humberto became the 2013 hurricane seasons first hurricane late yesterday. The storm now packing winds at 75 mph is a minimal category 1 storm. It remains well out in the Atlantic Ocean and is expect to be a problem for maritime interest only.

Elsewhere in the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Gabrielle continues to spin in the Atlantic near Bermuda. This system is expect to slowly move around the island nation for the next few days.  The system will then be caught up in a trough moving off the east coast of the United States, that will push Gabrielle further out to sea.

Closer to home in the western Caribbean Sea the Hurricane Center is monitoring an area of disturbed weather near Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. This system is given a 30% probability of developing into a tropical cyclone. Many of the long range models to suggest that this system will indeed strengthen once it cross the Yucatan. That would put it in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico and on a track that should not pose any problems to Acadiana or any of the United States Gulf Coast.
