Global ACE is climbing closer to normal thanks to the EPAC numbers and Noru bringing the WPAC up. Another longer tracker major hurricane/typhoon would likely bring it to normal.

WPAC has jumped bigtime as now SuperTyphoon continue to rake up ACE units.It was upgraded to cat 5 140kts at 18z Best Track.The NORU total as of this update is 22.34 units.

That was somewhat of a surprise Noru explosively intensified the past 24 hours. Likely to be top ACE producer to date surpassing Fernanda

Emily in the ATL should add 0.1-0.5 ACE. I think that must be record of some kind for so many named systems under 2 units. Maybe 2013 comes closest to the ratio with 4 named storms to 5 storms this year by Aug 1st.

NORU has surpassed Fernanda on ACE units and it will keep adding many more.

NORU=30.57

Fernanda=28.7475

NORU looks to be a beast so this should pass Fernanda by a lot when all is said and done. The ATL is getting left in the dust as usual by this time of year but should start to add some ACE as we head deeper into August and September.

It was a matter of time, WPAC is a huge basin and even a quiet year there is many times more than a full year elsewhere. Much needed ACE to bring up the global average

It's not only the strongest TC this year globally but also the most ACE TC. Already at 32.6725, It has maybe 4-6 days left.

I see this one maybe reaching 50 or more which would bring the WPAC season close to normal.

Let's not forget Emily. It must have boosted the Atlantic Ace half a point. :lol:

I also think Noru will easily surpass 50. Think it will also make Major (wpac super typhoon).
BTW, I assume that super typhoon is the same as Major hurricane (Cat 3 or higher).

Super typhoon is used for high-end cat 4's and cat 5s with winds of at least 130 knots.

Emily added 0.4 units

Only Noru as of today is adding much ACE. NHEM ACE is getting back to normal due to the WPAC getting closer (thanks to Noru) to average and the EPAC being above average to close the deficit. Overall as it stands WPAC is around 70% of normal, EPAC about 160% of normal and Atlantic 50% of normal.

If anyone was wondering what the average ACE per day in the Atlantic and East Pacific is. The Atlantic has a stronger peak over a smaller time frame, while the EPac is more consistently racking up ACE over a longer period.

I just happen to have the same graph for the WPac handy.

Franklin will add a few more to the Atlantic. 2-3 units if it stays a tropical storm into MX, 3-5 on the upper end if it achieves a hurricane.

Not bad for being the first Cat 5 globally. ACE 43.75 brings the ACE to 61.425 or about 70 % of normal YTD of 87.

2 units so far for Franklin with about 24h or so left. 3-4 units seems good

@BigJoeBastardi
The hurricane season is NOT STRONG. Objective ACE index even with Franklin is well below normal. Ave ACE/storm 1.1 1950s: 10.6!
