Tropics Watch: Isaac, Kirk, and Invest 98-LWe are monitoring low pressure (Invest 98-L) in the Atlantic for the possibility of development as it moves westward the next couple of days.

2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season Scorecard

Above is the season-to-date tally of named storms, hurricanes, and major hurricanes, compared to the “average pace” to this point.

The May duo of Tropical Storm Alberto and Tropical Storm Beryl, followed by the bizarre Hurricane Chris and Florida’s drought-quenching Tropical Storm Debby, put us well ahead of the pace. Later, Hurricane Ernesto, Tropical Storm Florence, Hurricane Gordon and Tropical Storm Helene added to the total. The most recent named storms have been Isaac, Joyce and Kirk.

On average, the tenth Atlantic storm (“J” storm) arrives by October 19. The earliest-named “J” storm was Jose on August 22 in 2005; this year’s Joyce tied for the second-earliest on record.
