Congratuations on your knowledge of the Beaufort wind scale. Although not until recently have 'cold core' storms gotten a name. Even winter storms. Anyway, the race is on between 90 & 91L (just south of Texas) as to naming.First Invest 90L 2021
The 2021 hurricane season is nearly upon us and it's already starting to make pre-official, start of the Atlantic Hurricane season just like Arthur in 2020!
From StormCarib :
90L has been designated for a closer look by the NHC as has been forecast in the last week or so by the long term genesis models. Located several hundred miles to the NE of Bermuda, it's forecast movement will be towards Bermuda with minimal impacts expected such as high waves, gusty winds and lashing rains but then is expected to pull back towards the NE with no threat to land masses while the shipping lanes will have a rough go.
This is not a tropical system but a potential sub tropical one with a large wind field, most thunderstorms and heavy convection displaced from the mainly cloud free "center" while being either warm or cold core. In essence, a hybrid of characteristics.
Tidbit: There is no such thing as a sub tropical hurricane for if their winds reach hurricane force, then that system would have evolved to become fully tropical.
That's it for now as breaktime is over. The first name on the board for this season is Ana. While it's a bit before the official start of the season, it's not too early to start preparations.
Be safe and prepared!

Should the Atlantic season begin the same as the Pacific? May 15th. Seems logical to me.
