[7] On May 15, the United Kingdom Met Office (UKMO) predicted 14 named storms, with a 70% chance that the number would be between 10 and 18, and nine hurricanes with a 70% chance that the number would be between 4 and 14. [54] Heavy rains across Tamaulipas and Veracruz triggered flooding in areas that had been affected by Tropical Storm Fernand just two weeks prior. Tropical Storm Karen is no longer - weakened to only remnants - and all watches and warnings are canceled.The Panhandle can expect a few severe… Environment. [57], A tropical wave spawned an area of low pressure in the Bay of Campeche early on September 12. The cyclone then turned eastward in weak westerly low- to mid-level flow. The organization called for 12 to 17 named storms, of which five to ten would further intensify into hurricanes; no forecast was given for the number of major hurricanes. [15] Finally, on August 8, NOAA issued its second and final outlook for the season, predicting 13 to 19 named storms, six to nine hurricanes, and three to five major hurricanes; these numbers were down slightly from its May outlook. After the fronts dissipated, deep convection began to initiate near the center. A few hours later, the storm weakened slightly and made landfall near Steinhatchee, Florida. Early on June 19, the depression emerged into the Bay of Campeche and began strengthening due to warm sea surface temperatures. It also predicted an ACE index of 130 with a 70% chance that the index would be in the range 76 to 184. After moving into the Bay of Campeche, a broad low-pressure area formed in association with the system on September 5. Storm clouds roll in from the Gulf of Mexico in Gulf Shores, Alabama, as weakening Tropical Storm Karen approaches landfall October 5, 2013. [46] In the city of Veracruz, heavy rainfall flooded roads, while downed trees caused power outages. Thank you to everyone that has followed and listened! The center’s tracking map forecasts Karen will make landfall as a strong tropical storm near the Florida-Alabama line early Oct. 6. However, dry air quickly became entrained into the circulation and convection waned. Tropical Storm Andrea killed four people after making landfall in Florida and moving up the East Coast of the United States. [76], On October 21, the storm moved north-northeastward around the northwestern periphery of a mid-level ridge. Thunderstorm activity remains limited to the eastern side, and the circulation appears to be tilted to the east with height due to some southwesterly wind shear. While approaching the Lesser Antilles, it became disorganized due to wind shear, but at 12:00 UTC on July 9, Chantal peaked with sustained winds of 65 mph (105 km/h). Based on satellite data,[41] the wave was upgraded to a tropical depression at 18:00 UTC on July 23 while located about 175 mi (282 km) south of the Cape Verde Islands, and further intensified into Tropical Storm Dorian by 06:00 UTC the following day. Tropical Storm Karen is poised to become the first named storm to hit the United States this season. [28] The remnants of Andrea brought gusty winds to Atlantic Canada, causing thousands of power outages in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. In Dominica, several mudslides were reported. The subtropical depression continued north-northwestward until degenerating into an open trough, and was soon absorbed by a cold front. While no value was placed on the number of expected landfalls during the season, TSR stated that the landfalling ACE index was expected to be above average. On April 10, 2014, at the 36th session of the RA IV hurricane committee, the World Meteorological Organization retired the name Ingrid from its rotating name lists due to the number of deaths and amount of damage it caused, and it will not be used again for another Atlantic hurricane. [2][17] NOAA typically categorizes a season as either above-average, average, or below-average based on the cumulative ACE Index, but the number of tropical storms, hurricanes, and major hurricanes within a hurricane season are considered occasionally as well. [81] The names Dorian and Fernand were used for the first time this year. In Oaxaca, a man died after being swept away by a swollen river. In Hispaniola, heavy rains caused flooding over portions of the island, but the fast-moving nature of the system precluded a more severe flooding event. There were 10 tornadoes,[28] the worst of which touched down in The Acreage. Consequently, there was a significant cooling of sea surface temperatures over portions of the north Atlantic. [78], After becoming a tropical cyclone on November 20, Melissa accelerated northeastward and slowly strengthened. Eventually, the system transitioned into a broad surface low. [6] [40] Overall, the storm caused less than $10 million in damage. Tropical Storm Karen (2013) Storm Active: October 3-6 On September 28, a tropical disturbance formed in the southern Caribbean sea, and began to track slowly northwestward. [10] On May 30, the Florida State University Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies, FSU COAPS, issued its first and only prediction for the season. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Karen was about 430 miles (695 km) south of the mouth of the Mississippi River on Thursday afternoon and had maximum sustained winds of 65 mph (100 kph). [30] Three fatalities occurred due to weather-related traffic accidents in Virginia and New Jersey. Downtown Miami is engulfed in storm clouds as Tropical Storm Karen heads toward Florida's Panhandle Oct. 3, 2013. By default, 2013 extended the period without major hurricane landfalls in the United States to eight years since Hurricane Wilma in 2005. And why we should keep forecasting it...", "Colo.

Downtown Miami is engulfed in storm clouds as Tropical Storm Karen heads toward Florida's Panhandle on Thurdsay, Oct. 3, 2013. [23] One hurricane and three tropical storms made landfall during the season, causing 47 deaths and about $1.51 billion in damage. [50] However, in post-analysis, it was determined that Gabrielle was never a tropical storm in the Caribbean. Hurricane and tropical storm watches were posted from southeast Louisiana to Florida and some oil and gas platforms in the storm's projected path were being secured and evacuated. [64] The effects of the storm spread into southern Texas, causing high tides and some flooding. Additionally, flooding was reported in some areas of the Northeastern United States. Tropical Storm Karen is located 275 miles south of the mouth of the Mississippi River. [32], Despite decreasing wind speeds as the storm crossed land, the circulation became better-defined. After meandering for two days, it degenerated into a remnant low-pressure area on December 7. [38] Elsewhere, damage reported in the Lesser Antilles was minimal, and there were no casualties. [45] The storm damaged 457 homes and caused 4 rivers to overflow. [2], Multiple agencies predicted above-average activity, citing forecasts for slower-than-average trade winds, warmer-than-normal sea surface temperatures,[4] abnormally low wind shear, and the unlikelihood of an El Niño developing prior to the peak of the season. In its report, the organization called for 15.4 (±4.3) named storms, 7.7 (±2.9) hurricanes, 3.4 (±1.6) major hurricanes, and a cumulative Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) index of 134. At least 54 people living along Hope Creek were relocated to shelters. Offshore, the freighter Rotterdam went missing with a crew of six amid 10-to-16-foot (3 to 5 m) swells. [21] However, Gray and Klotzbach were able to issue predictions for the 2014 season. [9] On May 23, 2013, NOAA issued its first seasonal outlook for the year, stating there was a 70% likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms, of which seven to eleven could become hurricanes, including three to six major hurricanes; these ranges are greater than the seasonal average of twelve named storms, six hurricanes and three major hurricanes. Deaths in parentheses are additional and indirect (an example of an indirect death would be a traffic accident), but were still related to that storm. [76] The remnants of Lorenzo fueled the St. Jude storm, which struck northern Europe with hurricane-force winds on October 27 and October 28. [61] Relief agencies distributed food and other aid to the hardest hit areas,[65][66] though in Tamaulipas, residents had to rely on assistance from the local Gulf Cartel. [29] In Florida, the storm brought heavy rainfall to some areas, causing localized flooding. A major hurricane is a storm that ranks as Category 3 or higher on the, Timeline of the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, "Background Information: The North Atlantic Hurricane Season", "Atlantic hurricane best track (HURDAT version 2)", Extended Range Forecast for Atlantic Hurricane Activity in 2013, April Forecast Update for Atlantic Hurricane Activity in 2013, WSI: Warm Tropical Atlantic Ocean Temperatures Suggest Another Active Hurricane Season, Extended Range Forecast of Atlantic Seasonal Hurricane Activity and Landfall Strike Probability for 2013: April, North Atlantic Tropical Storm Seasonal Forecast 2013, NOAA predicts active 2013 Atlantic hurricane season – Era of high activity for Atlantic hurricanes continues, FSU's 2013 North Atlantic hurricane forecast predicts above-average season, Extended Range Forecast of Atlantic Seasonal Hurricane Activity and Landfall Strike Probability for 2013: June, July Forecast Update for Atlantic Hurricane Activity in 2013, Forecast of Atlantic Seasonal Hurricane Activity and Landfall Strike Probability for 2013, NOAA: Atlantic hurricane season on track to be above-normal, Extended Range Forecast of Atlantic Seasonal Hurricane Activity and U.S. Landfall Strike Probability for 2009, "What happened to hurricane season? [16] On June 3, CSU issued its first mid-season prediction for the remainder of the year. Despite strong wind shear and an abundance of dry air, the storm strengthened while initially heading north-northeastward, before turning northeastward later that day. The system moved rapidly westward under the influence of a subtropical ridge. The final system was an unnamed subtropical storm that developed south of the Azores on December 5. At 04:45 UTC, the storm made landfall near Zempoala, Veracruz, at the same intensity. While the wave was south of Puerto Rico, another tropical wave reached the system and enhanced deep convection. On August 4, the remnant low was absorbed into a trough off the coast of North Carolina. Around midday on September 13, the depression strengthened into Tropical Storm Ingrid. After the storm, Veracruz governor Javier Duarte declared a state of emergency for 92 municipalities, which allowed farmers who sustained damage to receive aid. Heavy rains in many areas triggered flooding that washed out roads and damaged homes. Tropical Storm Karen – October 2013 Aaron Studwell October 4, 2013 0 COMMENTS. Scatterometer passes indicating a closed circulation confirmed that Tropical Storm Chantal had developed by 12:00 UTC on July 7, while located about 1,250 mi (2,010 km) east-southeast of Barbados. [57], At 12:00 UTC on September 11, Humberto reached hurricane status while turning northward. Collectively, these factors worked to suppress tropical cyclogenesis. Make sure you subscribe and set to auto download! Late on September 4, a tropical depression developed about 115 mi (185 km) south-southeast of Puerto Rico. Deep convection continued to develop over the center and the depression intensified into Tropical Storm Erin six hours after its initial designation. Thank you to everyone that has followed and listened! [69], Since the beginning of reconnaissance flights in 1943, Karen was one of few named storms to dissipate in the Gulf of Mexico without making landfall. Despite continued unfavorable wind shear, a broad area of low pressure formed off the east coast of Florida and became increasingly better defined. [74] In Texas, the storm brought minor coastal flooding to Brazoria County. Karen was moving to the northeast at 2 mph and has maximum sustained winds of 30 mph. Despite a deteriorating cloud pattern, Karen deepened and peaked with winds of 65 mph (105 km/h) later that day. About 10 hours later, it made landfall near Big Creek, Belize. Wind shear and dry air caused the storm to weaken beginning early on October 4. "[19] On November 29, Dr. Phil Klotzbach of CSU noted that "[Dr. Gray and I] have been doing these forecasts for 30 years and that's probably the biggest forecast bust that we've had. Karen would be the second named storm to hit the U.S. this year, with the first being Tropical Storm Andrea, which hit Florida in June. The wave moved west-northwestward along the southern periphery of a ridge to its north. Shortly thereafter, it crossed through the Lesser Antilles and continued weakening in the Caribbean Sea. Mexico, where Hurricane Ingrid, Tropical Depression Eight, and tropical storms Barry and Fernand all made landfall, was the hardest hit; Ingrid alone caused at least 32 deaths and $1.5 billion (2013 USD) in damage. However, the entrainment of drier mid-level air and cooler ocean waters caused a weakening trend. [42], Late on July 27, a closed low-level circulation ceased to exist and Dorian degenerated into an open tropical wave. Join now to receive daily email updates. [31], A tropical wave emerged into the Atlantic Ocean from the west coast of Africa on June 8. Early on August 17, the ship British Cygnet measured 44 mph (71 km/h) winds in relation to the cyclone; around this time, it was estimated that Erin attained its peak intensity with sustained winds of 45 mph (72 km/h) and a barometric pressure of 1,006 millibars (29.7 inHg). [59] Later on September 10, the storm's deepening briefly halted as it curved northwest in response to a developing mid-level trough over the central Atlantic. [12][13] However, by July and August, CSU and TSR all adjusted their forecasts downward because of predictions of cooler-than-average sea surface temperatures and above-average wind shear. This was the only tropical cyclone in the month of November. [63] Rainfall from the storm peaked at 20.1 in (510 mm) in Tuxpan, Veracruz. At Grand Isle, tar balls from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010 were washed ashore. [77], Early on November 17, an extratropical low developed along a stationary front over the central Atlantic. Tropical Storm Karen is a tropical storm which began developing in the Atlantic Ocean in September of 2019. [23] Activity began to slow in October, with the development of only two tropical storms, Karen and Lorenzo. The southern portion of the wave continued westward, while the northern portion moved slowly west-northwestward and developed into a surface trough after interacting with a second mid to upper level low. [5], Meanwhile, on April 8, Weather Services International (WSI) issued its first forecast for the hurricane season. Friday, Oct. 4, 2013 | Contact: Ken Pastorick; (225) 342-1881 or (225) 335-0235 (cell) BATON ROUGE, La. [52], The remnant system was monitored for regeneration. Caught between a trough over eastern Mexico and a ridge over the Southeastern United States, the storm turned sharply northwestward and later to the west. Subscribe Now> [60][62] The two storms produced approximately 5.7 trillion cubic feet (160 billion m3) of rainwater, equivalent to the combined volume of every reservoir in Mexico. Tropical Storm Karen briefly threatened the Gulf coast this weekend, but by Sunday it was clear that the storm was weakening, and the National Hurricane Center — understaffed because of the government shutdown — issued no coastal warnings or watches because of the storm. The following list of names was used for named storms that formed in the North Atlantic in 2013. The depression moved steadily westward and intensified into Tropical Storm Humberto early on September 9. Throughout the day, only sporadic bursts of deep convection occurred. Four days later, a mid- to upper-level trough increased convection along the northern portion of the wave. At 00:00 UTC on October 1, Jerry attained its peak intensity with sustained winds of 50 mph (80 km/h) and a minimum barometric pressure of 1,005 mbar (29.7 inHg). [72] Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal authorized the mobilization of the state's National Guard members to active duty. Tropical storm force winds are still reaching outward up to 140 miles from the center. [68], However, early on September 30, the depression strengthened into Tropical Storm Jerry while curving eastward. Andrea intensified and peaked as a strong tropical storm with winds at 65 mph (105 km/h) on June 6. Favorable conditions allowed it to attain hurricane status on September 14, and the next day Ingrid attained peak winds of 85 mph (137 km/h). [58] The vessel eventually reached São Tomé and Príncipe, though that country's port institute and coast guard denied her entrance. [34] In El Salvador, flooding and lightning caused one fatality each. Six hours later, the depression deepened into Tropical Storm Fernand. Similarly, there were two tropical storms in August, Erin and Fernand. Subsequently, heightened wind shear eroded the storm's convection. In early July, Tropical Storm Chantal moved through the Leeward Islands, causing one fatality, but minimal damage overall. Andrea transitioned into an extratropical cyclone over South Carolina on June 7, though the remnants continued to move along the East Coast of the United States until being absorbed by another extratropical system off Maine on June 10. Make sure you subscribe and set to auto download! On April 10, Colorado State University (CSU) issued its first forecast for the season, calling for a potentially hyperactive season with 18 named storms, nine hurricanes, four major hurricanes, and an ACE index of 165. Early on October 23, strong wind shear began impacting Lorenzo, causing the circulation to become exposed to deep convection. However, deep convection began re-developing later that day. Karen formed on Sept. 22 between Barbados and … Six hours later, the depression moved northward and strengthened into Tropical Storm Gabrielle. Posted by Levi at 5:13pm on October 3, 2013 Tropical Storm Karen has formed in the southern Gulf of Mexico from a disturbance that moved out of the Caribbean. Tropical Storm Karen. [32], A large tropical wave emerged into the Atlantic Ocean from the west coast of Africa on July 4. Early on October 6, Karen weakened to a tropical depression, and several hours later disintegrated into an open trough off the coast of Louisiana. Dr. Rick Knabb, the director of the National Hurricane Center looks at where Karen might be heading. No coastal advisories are in effect. The season's impact was minimal; although 15 tropical cyclones developed, most were weak or remained at sea. Additionally, the moisture associated with the remnants of Karen was absorbed into a frontal system and caused minor flooding in a few states, including Delaware, Georgia, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. These revisions can lead to a revised ACE total either upward or downward compared to the operational value. Karen changed course again, and is now back on a north-northwest heading at 10 mph. Damage and deaths include totals while the storm was extratropical, a wave, or a low, and all of the damage figures are in 2013 USD. *The 2020 Lapped Traffic Awards show with special guests! [61] The combined impacts of hurricanes Ingrid and Manuel affected two-thirds of Mexico, killing 192 people and causing $75 billion pesos (MXN, US$5.7 billion) in damage. Search For. Graphics Archive. Once inland, the depression quickly diminished to a remnant low by 06:00 UTC on September 7. Several hours later, it matured into a tropical depression about 170 mi (270 km) east-southeast of the city of Veracruz. Ingrid was replaced with Imelda for the 2019 season. [35] More than 26,000 residents temporarily lost power after lightning struck a nearby power station, leading to a fire. [36] Four deaths were reported in Mexico due to drowning. By late on July 10, Chantal diminished into a tropical wave while located south of Hispaniola. Later on October 1, a blocking high pressure ridge briefly impeded the storm's northeastward motion, but it resumed moving in that direction by the following day. [27], An area of low pressure in the eastern Gulf of Mexico developed into Tropical Storm Andrea on June 5. The waves moved westward and merged into a single area of disturbed weather east of the Lesser Antilles. By 12:00 UTC on September 10, it peaked with maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour (105 km/h) and a minimum barometric pressure of 1,003 mbar (29.6 inHg). Minimal tropical cyclogenesis occurred until the wave reached the western Caribbean Sea on September 27. [53] By September 9, wind shear began decreasing and the system re-developed into a tropical depression early on September 10. [49] Operationally, the depression was upgraded to Tropical Storm Gabrielle early on September 5. [14][15] NOAA also decreased the amount of activity in its final outlook, despite predicting a wetter-than-average western Africa and above-average sea surface temperatures in its report. Tropical Storm Karen Weakens As It Approaches The Gulf Coast. [80] The names not retired from this list were used again in the 2019 season. [79] Had the storm been recognized operationally, the storm would have received the name Nestor. By Kevin McGill Stacey Plaisance The Associated Press. [75], A tropical wave exited the west coast of Africa and entered the Atlantic on October 11. National Hurricane Center; Central Pacific Hurricane Center; Library; Contact Us Search. Tropical Storm Karen (2013), formed in the Gulf of Mexico Tropical Storm Karen (2019), briefly affected Puerto Rico before moving out to sea In Western Pacific storms : Typhoon Karen (1948) (T4801), remained over open waters [11], In June, predictions from CSU and TSR were similar to pre-season forecasts due to the a lack of an El Niño and warmer-than-average sea surface temperatures across the Atlantic Ocean. [73], Abnormally high tides were reported along the coast of Louisiana. The following day, Erin degenerated into a remnant low about halfway between the Lesser Antilles and the west coast of Africa. The convection gained enough organization for the system to be re-designated as a tropical depression by 18:00 UTC on August 2. An approaching mid- to upper-level cyclone began to capture Humberto, causing the storm to decelerate between late on September 16 and early on September 17. TSR gave a 65% probability that the landfalling ACE index would be above-average. Humberto then weakened to a subtropical depression early the next day, about 1,120 mi (1,800 km) south of Ponta Delgada. [43], On August 10, a tropical wave emerged into the Atlantic Ocean from the west coast of Africa. In its report, the organization forecast 16 named storms, nine hurricanes, and five major hurricanes. Oct 4, 2013 Tropical storm Karen forms in Gulf, headed for U.S. In Cuba, the storm brought flooding, with over 1,000 people fleeing their homes, mainly along the Cuyaguateje River in Pinar del Río Province.
