Is it normal for a hurricane to start off the eastern seaboard?

I've never really seen one do that but I have only been following the last couple years.

Thoughts?

This should prove to be a very interesting hurricane season, after such a mild winter. Can't wait!

Mods - This is breaking news, but if you want to move it go ahead.

And..? It started in a weird (at least to me) spot and it's early in the season- I think it's worth mentioning.

Wow that was quick! Looked at the NHC map earlier today and that storm had just a 50% chance of becoming tropical.

this is not nothing.
I have been through 4 hurricanes
HUGO, Charley, Frances, Ivan
MAJOR stormas survived them all
with my survial prep. We humans can
swim, jump, climb, run, and get through
anything. Nothing to worry about in this
trop storm/.

Agreed! I just find the area it started in odd. Does anyone remember any storm that started in this area? I thought they mostly started near Africa.

This kind of weather development isn't unheard of. ( See here for a list of tropical storm origins. ) I had been watching it since it was labeled as a system they were investigating.

That being said, a tropical storm is nothing to worry about. In fact, most of the storms we've had in the area (I am in the SC Lowcountry) have been worse than this storm. It's just given the label of a tropical storm since it's over the ocean and meets the criteria for the title. It's given us a welcome break from warm temperatures, a nice breeze, some cloud cover, and some beneficial rain.

It's worth watching, but it's not worth rushing to the store to buy milk and bread. (I've never understood milk and bread since power outages would cause milk to spoil anyways.)


If you're interested, join us tonight for the National Hurricane Center Skywarn Net. You can listen here or if you're a licensed amateur radio operator you can join us at Echolink Node 7203 on Saturday Nights at 20:00EST (Sunday Night 00:00Z).

I've got a front-row seat for this one in SE S. Carolina. And yes, storms have formed off our coast in the past. It's not that common but it does happen. Waves on the beach are 3-5FT. Not much to see here.

Sooo...have you ever had too much rain in the hot ass south? It's miserable, and it brings damage, disease, a plague of effin frogs and mosquitoes, fishkills, and power outages. Live through just one of the many storms that plague the South before you dismiss a Tropical Storm.

Geez, we just got 5+ inches of rain in the past two days with miserable heat, we don't need any more rain yet.

By the way, I moved to the south from Long Island at 17, the weather and heat down this way can be abysmal. It can also be absolutely beautiful.

What a nice little storm there.
According to my dad down there it will be a welcomed rain.

Kind of an early start this year.
