2011 Hurricane Season Starts Today

The 2011 Hurricane Season officially starts today and runs through November 30. Alarmingly, there is already a tropical low off the Carolina coast. It’s unlikely to develop into much, but it could be a sign of things to come. This season is predicted to be an active one but then again so was last year and it turned out to be a relatively normal season. We were also aided last year by favorable winds that pushed many of the storms away from the U.S. coastline. Those winds may not have the same effect this year.

Below is a list of the hurricane names for this season along with a satellite image taken yesterday of that pesky little low off our coast. Image is courtesy of NASA and was posted originally on
