We've had 22 named storms this year. The most in recored history.

And 3 Catagory 5 storms in the Gulf of Mexico...another first I believe.
Also, Wilma was the most powerful storm in the Atlantic...ever.

Lotsa new stuff to consider.

Is it possible for Wilma and Alpha to collide? Is it possible for them to merge?

It is possible for storms to merge. However It is unlikely that Wilma and Alpha will merge. I would think that Wilma would be too far North for Alpha to catch up.

this out--someone here thinks two storms may converge over Florida THIS WEEK!

Note--I do not endorse Bible Codes, just so you know.

Do you realize that more than 10% of all known category 5 hurricanes in the last 120 years occured THIS SEASON?

There have been 28 known Atlantic Cat 5s since 1886. There have only been more than one in the same season in 3 years- '60, '61, and '05. 2005 is the first time we had more than 2. 3 so far, and maybe still counting.

Also, the normal hurricane season is from June-November, but something disturbing happened in 2003. In 2003, Tropical Storm Ana formed in April, and Tropical Storm Odette formed in December, and Tropical Storm Peter formed in January.

According to Wikipedia, out of season storms are very rare. They have only formed in 2 years- 1954 and 2003. (although between those two years there were 5 off season storms- 1 early in each year, 1 late in 1954, 2 late in 2003.

Part of me thinks we might not go off-season this year since we didn't have one in April, but another part of me notes that only 3 of the 28 Cat 5s every recorded have started in October- virtually all of them were in august and september, and strangely enough, several of them occurred in low-activity seasons. I can't help wondering, if we can have a Cat 5 this late in such an active season, could we see the season go overtime again???


I would also like to point out one more thing. I'm not saying that weather manipulation isn't happening, but it should be noted that a pattern has been observed in Hurricane activity. long periods of inactivity, punctuated by extremely active seasons, seem to run in cycles. The least active seasons on records were almost all in the 20s and 30s, then there were notable seasons in the early 60s. It was quiet again from 70s up until 94 or 95 (Hurricane Andrew formed in August, and that was the first storm of that season). then it got rough again in this decade. It seems like you hit a 5-10 year hotstreak every 30 years or so the way I see it. (others have suggested more like a 50 year cycle).

Question.... Now that Alpha has been used can it be used next year?

I heard someone say that they'd probably do Alpha 05 for this year, Alpha 06 for the next....
