Typhoon Lan in the western Pacific has become the 2nd largest cyclone in history with a diameter of 845 miles. Expected to become a super typhoon and head towards Japan. It will then teleport into the Gulf of Mexico and make landfall in the Florida Panhandle as a strong cat 4.


Or something like that

Have to admit, I actually had to pull the map, and do some google search on Lan.

You need to stop your mess.. your creating havoc in my schedule :)

93L in the western Caribbean now has an 80% chance of formation, will likely become TS Phillipe sometime soon as it drifts towards Cuba. Watches/Warnings could be issued in South Florida and the Bahamas.


It is projected to potentially merge with the powerful nor'easter hitting the New England area this weekend. This could become a Sandy-type storm, though not as powerful. GFS is predicting a possible 980 mb storm over NE, with wind gust and rain at high levels, and near hurricane force. Stay tuned

Go from south of Cuba to New England in under 48 hours? I don't see it happening.

Phillipe doesn't have to reach New England, it has to reach the frontal boundary. Once it absorbs into it and feeds it all the warm moisture into it, that's when the weather in NE will get bad.

It won't be Phillipe anymore, but it will be a powerful storm.

Seriously? A TS?

You people need to get a hobby.

NOBODY here pays attention to a TS...except maybe snowbirds.

Oh dear...more...rain. In Florida.

Phillipe is gone....it has successfully merged with the frontal boundary...supercharging the storms included with it. NE, especially NYC, will get some nasty wind tonight. Hurricane force gust are possible

That doesn't even make sense. A hurricane is not a gust.

Hurricane Harvey's cost after estimation 198.6 billion. That makes it the 2nd most costliest natural disaster after the 2011 Japanese earthquake/tsunami. Hurricane season ends soon thankfully

and .. that's a wrap on the storm season .. pretty big in my opinion .. Harvey hammered many clients and customers I worked with; Irma tore through the middle of Florida, and woke many; Maria destroyed much of Puerto Rico; and Nate went through much of New Orleans and the Bayou

Facts from reddit

Tropical cyclones (≤39 mph): 18

Named storms (39-73 mph): 17

Hurricanes (≥74 mph): 10

Major hurricanes (≥111 mph): 6

Damage: >$250 billion (Harvey: $100-200 billion; Maria: >$95-105 billion; Irma: $45-55 billion)

Deaths: 438-1,468 (Maria death toll in Puerto Rico ranges from official statement of 55 by its government to 499 from a CNN report investigating half of the island's funeral homes to over 1,000 from a study published today)

Notable facts

Harvey ended the record streak of 4,323 days without a major hurricane hitting the United States

Irma is the strongest Atlantic hurricane on record outside the Caribbean and Gulf, and it maintained 185 mph longer than any tropical cyclone on record globally

Irma is the strongest Category 5 landfall on record in the Leeward Islands

Ophelia is the easternmost major hurricane on record in the Atlantic

The United States was struck by two Category 4 hurricanes in the same season, the first occurrence on record

Three (Harvey, Irma, Maria) of the top 5 costliest Atlantic hurricanes on record occurred in the same year


We made it through to the end...the costliest season in Atlantic history. Let's hope 2018 is quieter, though that may be difficult considering the La Nina in the Pacific
