As Hurricane Sally pounds her way across the Gulf Coast, consider that this is only the second time in history that there have been five tropical cyclones in the Atlantic Ocean at the same time. The first was the infamous 2005 season that saw no fewer than 28 named 'canes. It was also the first and only time (so far) that they ran out of letters in the alphabet and had to start again with the Greek alphabet. The 2005 season saw the most intense tropical storm in the Atlantic ever: Cyclone Wilma. She packed central pressure of 882mb and gusts to 295km/h. But Katrina was the most destructive (in the USA ever), costng the economy $160 billion, despite "only" becoming the 4th most intense Atlantic storm in history. 2020 has one name left in the hurricane naming convention, Winifred, before we become 2nd in that stat too.
Spring sun shift. The weather is changing.
Juicy. A couple days ago it scarily cooked but now this swell is done, and summer strikes with the first soutie yeaster.
A thumping west swell hit the Western Cape overnight and after a small lull in the spring-time big wave scene, a few came through today, if a little slow. @grant.scholtz shot this gallery. Check it on Wavescape - Link in bio.
