Which storms of the past would you love to see Storm2K-like discussions on?

#1 Postby Teban54 » Tue Oct 19, 2021 12:16 pm

Pick a storm that happened before Storm2K became a thing. Then imagine if it happened in real time and we see people here on Storm2K (and more broadly on social media) discussing it. Posting model runs and trends (especially OTS or not), debating over intensity, recon and ASCAT, sharing satellite images, preparing for landfalls, watching webcams for land observations, even generating memes.

Question is, which storm would you pick?


This thought came to me when I was revisiting old threads of several infamous storms like Irma, Dorian and Wilma. A few of my own picks:
- Labor Day 1935: Just want to know how it feels to watch an RIing pinhole 892 mb monster in the Florida Straits, not to mention making landfall.
- Elena 1985: Completely crazy track. Imagine everyone debating when GFS makes landfall in Mississippi but Euro brings it to Tampa, only for it to somehow find a way back to Mississippi again lol.
- Betsy 1964: Like Elena but crazier and with a lot more "OTS or not" debates. It hits Florida too, which is always a huge plus for generating posts on this forum.
- Cuba 1932: Like watching Eta and Iota, but for 7 days straight and stronger. Just think about how many recon missions would find Cat 5 winds.

Outside of Atlantic:
- John 1994 (EPac): If you thought Sam was long-lived enough, think again. Imagine watching the same storm for over a month.
- Tip 1979: No description needed lol.

Probably a lot more interesting ones that I forgot.

Does anybody know what year Storm2k was created?


Anyways, I would have loved to have been a part of a Storm2k discussion on Hurricane Andrew. By far.

Great hurricane of 1780. This board would go ballistic if there was a Cat 5 taking that track in October

I think 2002?

Yes, Andrew. Definitely Andrew. He was the first storm to pop into my head. I can't help wondering how many would have given him up for dead and insisted the season would be a total dud.

Also Ginger 1971. How would the forum handle having the same Atlantic storm for a month?

1932 Cuba-What was likely a sub-900 hurricane in the WCAR in November (The SS Phemius confirmed 915 mbars in the SE eyewall a little bit after the probable peak)
1935 Labor day- An 892-880 mbar (unofficial observation found 880 but it has not been confirmed and likely never will be) EI'ing pinhole eyed hurricane making landfall on the Florida Keys
1938 New England-No explanation needed here
Cyclone Meli 1979-Sustained DT8.0 for 24 hours with a perfectly round CDO, heading right towards southern Fiji

It's not on the Atlantic side, but I feel like with a dead Atlantic during that particular timeframe many of the Atlantic trackers would have flocked to an Iniki discussion.

Donna 1960 would have been epic, a long-tracked CV hurricane that might have set the page record for a thread. It impacted the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, the Bahamas, then was a combination of Charley and Irma for Florida, before moving right up the east US coast, hitting Wilmington, North Carolina and impacting every major city along the Eastern seaboard before making landfall on Long Island and traveling through eastern New England, all the time as a hurricane.

Betsy and Inez for the track memes. Andrew for the amount of times posters would've tried to kill him north of PR. Tip and Labor Day because those would've been fun/insane to follow along on this forum.

Any of the unpredictable ones--Elena and Juan in 1985, Jerry in 1989 becoming a naked swirl before becoming a hurricane, Lili in 1990 being a hurricane moving west in mid-October towards the east coast, and Gordon 1994/Marco 1996 would've been good pages-long speculative discussions

Not a storm per se but it would've been interesting to see how this board would've reacted in 1999 being up to mid-August with only one storm all the way back in June.

The Galveston Hurricane of 1900

1934 Central America Hurricane - Where would it go!?

1996 Lake Huron Cyclone - We would been like 'Where did this come from!?"

Hurricane Allen 1980 - Recon proving the fastest winds over & over again in the Atlantic

Hurricane Gilbert 1988 - Oh no . . .

Hurricane Faith 1966 - How far can she go?

1899 San Ciriaco hurricane - Imagine the Number of Public Advisories & ACE this would have produced?

Hurricane Alice 1954/1955 - "OMG, what is she doing!?"

Hurricane John 1994 - Enough is Enough on how far he can go.

Okeechobee Hurricane in 1928

1932 San Ciprián Hurricane - A classic RI Pinhole Eye Hurricane (And 1932 itself was insane)

Atlantic:
  • 1635 season
  • 1780 season
  • 1804 season
  • 1815 season
  • 1821 season
  • 1824 season
  • 1835 season
  • 1837 season
  • 1846 season
  • 1848 season
  • Several additional seasons from the late nineteenth century: 1870–1, 1878, 1880, 1886–7, and 1893—all of which were likely exceptionally active, not to mention impactful, including such storms as the 1893 Sea Islands, Midnight, and Chenière Caminada hurricanes
  • Selected individual storms: 1856 Last Island, 1863 Amanda, 1866 Bahamas, 1877 Venezuela–Florida, 1896 Cedar Keys, 1898 Georgia, 1899 San Ciriaco
  • 1915 season: featured two large, intense, long-lived hurricanes successively impacting Greater Houston and New Orleans, along with a rare hurricane impact on Cape Canaveral (present-day Kennedy Space Centre) and a major hurricane near Bermuda
  • 1926 season: was a very intense and impactful year in Bermuda, the Bahamas, Cuba, and peninsular Florida, as well as the Gulf Coast, and featured three hurricanes simultaneously at one point
  • 1928’s Hurricane San Felipe II (“Okeechobee”)
  • 1932–3 seasons: collectively featured at least eight landfalling major hurricanes, including four ≥ 125-kt landfalls in 1932 alone, with 1933 being one of the most intense seasons on record (imagine two Category 4s striking the CONUS within 24h of each other)
  • 1935’s Labor Day and Yankee hurricanes
  • 1938’s New England (Long Island) “Express”
  • The period of 1944–50 in Florida
  • Virtually every season from 1951–9
  • 1960’s Donna
  • 1961 season: yielded a ferociously active September, along with storms such as Carla, Debbie (extratropical remnants in Ireland), Esther, and Hattie
  • 1963’s Flora: one of the most tragic and erratic storms on record, known for its copious rainfall and extreme intensity
  • 1964’s Cleo, Dora, and Isbell: three hurricanes to impact Florida, including one of the very few on record in the First Coast (between St. Marys and Cape Canaveral)
  • 1965’s Betsy
  • 1969 season: Project STORMFURY’s role in “seeding” Debbie while Camille was ongoing would add an intriguing angle to discussions
  • 1979 season: David and Frederic would likely generate heated debate over modelled solutions, while also garnering the interest of residents in the islands
  • 1984’s Diana
  • 1985 season: the high volume of impacts (including Gloria’s), eccentric tracks (Elena), and late impacts (Kate) would yield fruitful meteorological lessons
  • 1988’s Gilbert and Joan
  • 1989’s Hugo
  • 1992’s Andrew
  • 1994’s Gordon
  • 1995’s Luis, Marilyn, and Opal
  • 1996’s Edouard, Fran, and Hortense
  • 1998’s Georges and Mitch
  • 1999’s Bret, Floyd, Irene, and Lenny
  • 2000’s Debby and Keith
  • 2001’s Erin (the “Hurricane of 9/11”), Iris, and Michelle

Eastern and Central North Pacific:
  • 1983–5 seasons: based on satellite, featured a number of intense systems that likely attained Category-5 status at one or more points (see here and here)
  • 1992’s Iniki
  • 1994’s John
  • 2002’s Kenna

Western North Pacific:
  • 1953’s Nina
  • 1958’s Ida
  • 1959’s Joan, Sarah, and Vera
  • 1961’s Nancy
  • 1966’s Kit
  • 1971’s Irma
  • 1973’s Nora
  • 1975’s June
  • 1978’s Rita: was very similar to Hagibis (2019), featuring a similarly cold CDO and pinhole eye at its peak, and maintained high intensity for several days
  • 1979’s Tip
  • 1984’s Vanessa
  • 1997 season: generated a true cavalcade of intense, long-tracked typhoons

Other basins:
  • Tracy (1974, Australian)
  • Hina (1985, South Pacific): featured ≥ T7.5 for nearly a full day, and is considered to be a solid Category 5 by BoM, yet is “only” listed at 135 kt by JTWC

1914/1983 in the Atlantic. Also Helene 1988. I’d find the rest of the hypothetical threads people commonly bring up here to be too overwhelming/long to read probably.

Outside of the Atlantic, any of the higher end typhoons with Recon, or higher end typhoons without really.
