Within a span of about an hour and a half, a new tropical depression formed, strengthened into Tropical Storm Imelda, and made landfall on Texas. It's looking like Houston and the rest of southeast Texas could get a hell of a lot of rain from this - probably not to Harvey or Allison levels, but a lot of flash flooding is expected in that area.

Well, within the last week, we've had three more storms spin up.  Jerry looks to be spreading a second round of wind and rain to Bermuda, Karen is out in the Caribbean, and Lorenzo is out by the Cape Verde region.

Meanwhile, in the Pacific, the forecaster gave us a couple of interesting advisory headlines:

..KIKO RESTRENGTHENS AS IT INCHES CLOSER TO THE END OF THE EASTERN PACIFIC BASIN...

...GAME OVER... ...MARIO BECOMES A REMNANT LOW...

Mario's quest as a tropical cyclone is over. The low has produced only a few small areas of intermittent convection during the last day or so, but with insufficient organization to be classified as a tropical cyclone. Therefore, Mario is now a remnant low and this is the last advisory.

The Atlantic has had five new tropical storms in just 10 days! Now that is crazy, or the season's peak.

Kiko is nowhere near the end of the Eastern Pacific, which I consider to include the so-called Central Pacific (much like Wikipedia does) and thus extends all the way to the 180 Meridian (which is also where hurricanes cease to be such and instead be referred to as typhoons). The -140 Meridian is just the NHC/CPHC boundary.

All times Eastern unless DST is in force only in the USA (Central in that case to preserve "6 hours behind my actual time") or otherwise noted

AIUI, September 10 is usually the Atlantic hurricane season's "peak."

As for Kiko and how to treat the Pacific between 140W and 180... remember, a storm that strengthens to a Storm here receives its name from a separate list than either the East or West Pacific basins. Obviously, in yesterday's headline, the forecaster was referring to the dividing line between RSMC Miami and RSMC Honolulu.

Today's Forecaster had this to say about Kiko:

Quote
Still, Kiko has been one for the record books and should enter the top 10 in longest-lived eastern Pacific tropical cyclones by midday Tuesday.

Also, It appears that Lorenzo is forecast to become a major hurricane, but will be a "true" fish spinner, passing to the east of Bermuda.

I stopped following Lorenzo after its 145 mph peak on Friday morning. Imagine my surprise when I checked the NHC this evening and saw it had restrengthened back to a 160 mph category 5.

Assuming the rating holds up in post-season analysis, this storm is breaking a bunch of records. It is by far the easternmost category 5 on record at 45W (previous record was Hugo at 54W), and also had the lowest pressure in an Atlantic hurricane east of 50W. It also makes 2019 only the seventh season on record to feature two category 5 Atlantic hurricanes.

The Atlantic has never seen a fish-spinning Category 5. Depending on how close it comes to the Azores, Lorenzo could well be the first. Unfortunately, it won't be a true fishspinner because a French barge sank in the storm; 3 people have been rescued but 11 are still missing.

Lorenzo will join the 2005 iteration of Emily in the very short list of storms that reached category 5 and yet managed to survive in the naming list. Even further, Lorenzo will be the first such storm to have been operationally recognized as cat. 5, as Emily was only upgraded in the post-season reanalysis. I already theorized such a scenario where a category 5 monster doesn't get retired, and now I get to see it.

Okay, the Atlantic hurricane season has come to an end. A weird one, where my list of storms starts with Barry (skipping Andrea) and ends with Pablo and Sebastien (skipping Rebekah, thus Sebastien should have been Pablo). Chantal will remain in the list again thanks to a subtropical storm (which IMO shouldn't be named), it was spared from retirement in 2007 along with Erin and Melissa, and looks like Dorian will be struck down.

It will be a gray day if Dorian is struck down ;)
