LostCosmonaut posted a topic in Open DiscussionFor discussion of all sorts of weather and weather related phenomena. Post cool shit, or just talk about what it's like outside. First, here's a cool pic of some sprites; Also, we're just now starting to get into hurricane season (although it actually began about 5 months ago with Hurricane Alex)! The US has dodged a lot of bullets recently, there hasn't been a landfalling major hurricane in the US since 2005. The biggest story in the Atlantic for 2015 was Hurricane Joaquin, which reached category 4 intensity over the Bahamas despite its unusual method of formation, and sank the cargo ship El Faro; The East Pacific had Hurricane Patricia, which produced the highest winds ever recorded in a hurricane, and the lowest pressure ever recorded in the western hemisphere (872 mb) Side not, California hasn't been hit by a hurricane since 1898. Maybe this is the year they'll get unlucky!
