Thursday, June 2, 2022 at 10:15 – A very rare phenomenon occurs in the Atlantic: the formation of a cross hurricane. The abyss, which developed in the Pacific, will reform in the Atlantic Ocean to lead to another catastrophe that could turn into a tropical storm in another five days.
The time of the agatha in Mexico is not known. The first hurricane of the year hit the coast on Monday afternoon as a Category 2 hurricane with winds of 165 km / h. There were nine deaths, four disappearances and several floods. According to the National Hurricane Center of the Eastern Pacific, “This is the strongest hurricane to make landfall in May along the Pacific coast of Mexico since records began in 1949.”
The Atlantic hurricane season usually begins on June 1st. However, a trend is emerging from 2015: first-named hurricanes will form before this date. The transfer to Agatha Atlantic is unusual, as it was the first time in history that we observed this phenomenon in June.
Good to know: NOAA predicts more than normal Atlantic hurricane season for the seventh year in a row.
In the next five days, we have an 80% chance of seeing Alex’s birth in the Atlantic. It marks the beginning of a busy hurricane season. The NOAA has forecast 14 to 21 hurricanes this year, including three to six major hurricanes. The increase in hurricane activity is linked to a variety of factors, including the existence of La Nina.
Although Alex did not officially become a hurricane due to insufficient wind speed, the storm caused damage. Its trajectory remains to be seen, but models predict that it will have an impact on western Cuba and southern Florida. The precipitation water potential between 100 mm and 300 mm was estimated.
