Big ones for 2021

#1 Postby AnnularCane » Sat Feb 06, 2021 1:28 pm

What say we liven up Talkin' Tropics a bit and talk about what we think will be the big ones for 2021? 8-)

The names:

Ana
Bill
Claudette
Danny
Elsa
Fred
Grace
Henri
Ida
Julian
Kate
Larry
Mindy
Nicholas
Odette
Peter
Rose
Sam
Teresa
Victor
Wanda

The possibilities for me this year for now are Elsa, Ida (yes, the I storm again), Leisure Suit Larry, Odette, and possibly Rose.

And no, I am not currently guessing on any Greek names or whatever they want to use yet. :wink:

I wonder if 2021 will finally break the trend of Henri being a weak, pathetic, forgettable storm.

I’m getting a bit of bad vibes from Julian. Not only is it a name likely to be in the peak season, and the replacement of a borderline Cat 5, but it just seems fitting for a Big One. Even if 2021 sees a very active early season like 2020, Julian probably won’t be used until mid August at the earliest.

Ida through Odette seem to be the most probable names to occur during the heart of the season from mid August through the end of September, while anything afterwards would fall into the October peak and could be a late season Caribbean monster. Even with a La Niña, it’s very unlikely that 2021 will come close to the rapid pace of 2020, but an above-average season looks likely, so we could get quite deeper than normal into the name list once the first burst of activity in ASO arrives.

I am neither a meteorology student nor a professional, I'm just a meteorology enthusiast who knows a decent amount about tropical cyclones. Look to the professional mets, the NHC, or your local weather office for the best information.

I am betting on Grace being a cat 2 that makes a powerful landfall in Florida then going on to strengthen to a large cat 3-4 and slam into Louisiana Katrina style. Just a guess. :shoot:

Depending on how active the season is early on, I have a bad feeling about Ida and Nicholas.

Honestly, I am going to go with Ida and Mindy given the recent years "M curse" as well as the infamous "I" curse. I also think Henri, Julian, and Victor should be watched. I'm really not basing my latter guesses on anything concrete or any historic pattern of course.

For the male names, Henri, Julian and Nicolas stand out; as for the females, Grace, Kate and Odette.

If the season starts late, then Claudette, Elsa and Fred sound like big ones; on the other of the spectrum, if there is a hyperactive season, Peter, Rose and Teresa sound like they could be trouble.

Claudette, Odette, and Sam concern me this year. Claudette sounds like a Cape Verde storm in early August, Odette gives me Caribbean cruiser vibes, and Sam sounds like a late-season MH that hits south Florida. Regardless, fingers crossed that this season won't even make it to Sam.

Pretty sure that place hasn't had a major landfall in like 100 years. Would be pretty insane to have a C4 and a C5 make landfall there in the same year

As we have Wanda in the Atlantic this season, I want a petition to have Vision as the V name in the East Pacific, so we have the smallest chance at having hurricane Wanda-Vision!!! (For any fellow marvel fans out there) :lol:

Btw no need to worry about Greeks anymore, they've been scrapped. However, if we do manage to get to the aux list, Adria, Deshawn, Heath, and Jacobus seem pretty menacing
