It's June 1 (first day of the season in the Atlantic) and no name has been used yet, which didn't happen since 2014. Now, I dispute if there was any pre-season storms in every year in between, as I don't count subtropical cyclones and I thus I don't consider 2019 to have had a storm too early.

They managed to squeeze in a pre-season tropical storm in the eastern Pacific, I see.
Atlantic will have to wait another day or two it looks like.

Not quite. Eastern Pacific season starts May 15.

The PTC today near the Yucatan is what's left of Agatha from the Pacific basin, one of those storms that'll traverse both basins.

Is it technically a basin crosser though? I thought Agatha got torn apart by Mexico mountains and absorbed into this low that's now about to develop.

The system was torn apart by Mexico, but the broad low pressure center survived and reorganized quickly as it got back into the Gulf/NW Caribbean due to the abnormally high water temps in the region.

Well, we definitely had a basin crosser with Bonnie. The 1500Z advisory was the point where the NHC moved the storm from the Atlantic to the Pacific basin. They erroneously designated that advisory as Advisory 1. They have since assigned it the correct advisory number (#20)

Meanwhile, an Invest that was considered to be a low probability to develop into a tropical cyclone all of a sudden became Colin over a 'brown ocean.'

My mom in Myrtle Beach had herself a surprise today with Colin.

Eh, I bet NHC is going to move Colin's formation time back 12-24 hours to when it was offshore of South Carolina in the post-season analysis. It most definitely looked like a tropical cyclone on Friday night.

https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/aboutgloss.shtml#t

Tropical Cyclone:
    A warm-core non-frontal synoptic-scale cyclone, originating over tropical or subtropical waters, with organized deep convection and a closed surface wind circulation about a well-defined center.

They did a good job of maintaining that standard by claiming a tropical storm formed over land.

I used to respect the hell out of the NHC, but they've been doing stuff like this way too much of late. It's a bit of an embarrassment to meteorology.
