, According to the Hydrographic Center of the Brazilian Navy, late on December 27, a subtropical depression formed off the coast east of Rio Grande do Sul. Rainfall has since returned closer to normal across southeast Brazil.  On the next day, the system strengthened into a tropical depression and other agencies considered it as an invest, designating it as 90Q; however, on January 7, the tropical depression dissipated. Air rises rapidly around the edges of the center of the storm. On April 14, the system rapidly dissipated, as it was absorbed into a large squall line.  On December 31, Oquira transitioned into an extratropical low, and the Hydrographic Center issued their final advisory on the storm.  On October 28, Mani weakened to a low pressure area. Yesterday the tracker probably showed us going south for an hour, because we did.  However, it was noted that not all of the heavy rain and impacts were attributable to the system, as a large monsoon low covered much of Brazil at the time. ", National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, II. Over 171.8 mm (6.76 in) of rain fell in the Belo Horizonte metro area on January 24, triggering a landslide and killing 3 people and leaving 1 missing. The worst downpours occurred late last week in association with a subtropical system tracking well off the Brazil coast. © Copyright TWC Product and Technology LLC 2014, 2021, Category 6 Sets Its Sights Over the Rainbow, Alexander von Humboldt: Scientist Extraordinaire, My Time with Weather Underground (and Some Favorite Posts). Tropical Storm Iba (2019) (10 F) J Subtropical Storm Jaguar (2019) (4 F) K Subtropical Storm Kurumí (2020) (3 F) Media in category "South Atlantic tropical cyclones" The following 9 files are in this category, out of 9 total.  In 2011, the Brazilian Navy Hydrographic Center started to assign names to tropical and subtropical cyclones that develop within its area of responsibility, to the west of 20°W, when they have sustained wind speeds of at least 65 km/h (40 mph)..  During January 2009, a subtropical storm developed in the basin, and in March 2010, a tropical storm developed, which was named Anita by the Brazilian public and private weather services.  Eçaí started to decay on December 5, and weakened into a subtropical depression at around 00:00 UTC on December 6.  The system was named Bapo by the Brazilian Navy Hydrography Center during February 6, after it had intensified into a subtropical storm. One of the hallmarks of human-induced climate change is a revving up of the hydrological cycle. This event is considered by some meteorologists to be a nearly once-in-a-lifetime occurrence. Kamby was replaced by Kurumí in 2018 without being used.  On the next day, the system intensified into a tropical storm, receiving the name Iba from the Brazilian Navy Hydrographic Center. Generally tracking southeastward, the system began to organize within the afternoon hours of January 22 and was designated a subtropical depression in the early hours of January 23. Let's talk about Cyclone Kurumi (which we found out means Boy in Tupi-Guarani). This boundary meandered over the region for a few days while generating showers and thunderstorms.  Bañado de Pajas, departament of Cerro Largo in Uruguay, recorded 240 mm (9.4 in) of rain. Throughout 2020, 112 tropical cyclones have formed in bodies of water known as tropical cyclone basins. Some parts of southeast Brazil have higher records, especially in the Petropolis area just north of Rio, where moist onshore flow is pushed up hillsides extending higher than 800 meters (2600 feet). Originally announced in 2011, the list has been extended from ten to fifteen names in 2018.   On the next day, the system intensified into a tropical storm, receiving the name Iba from the Brazilian Navy Hydrographic Center.  Several hours later, due to a lack of wind shear, the system intensified into a subtropical storm and was given the name Kurumí. Significant damage was reported in portions of Espírito Santo, though specifics are unknown. ROUGH/VERY ROUGH SEA ASSOCIATED. Later that day, the system strengthened into a subtropical storm, receiving the name Jaguar from the Brazilian Navy Hydrographic Center. As critical as the Amazon is to regional and global climate and to biodiversity, local climate impacts may actually hit many more people in densely populated southeast Brazil. Subtropical Storm Kurumí AOI:South of Brasil. Afterward, the storm began to weaken due to strong wind shear. Kurumí caused devastating floods and mudslides in Southeast region of Brazil, while Mani caused heavy rainfall in the Santa Catarina state. , According to a presentation at the Sixth WMO International Workshop on Tropical Cyclones (IWTC-VI), satellite imagery from January 1970 showed that a system with an eyewall had developed behind a cold front and that the system needed further analysis to determine if it was tropical or subtropical. ESTIMATED AT POSITION 30S039W AT 241200 UTC.  A Navy buoy registered a 6-metre (20 ft) wave off the coast of Santa Catarina.  It lasted until February 1, when the cyclone became extratropical.  Within Brazil the system caused heavy rain and flooding with a state of emergency declared in Aracaju, after the river overflowed and burst its banks which flooded homes, destroyed crops and caused parts of the highway to collapse. Sinking air in the center of the storm heats up the air, so the storm has warm temperatures from the surface all the way up to high levels of the atmosphere. A tropical depression formed within a monsoon trough on March 23, 2019, off the coast of Bahia. At the time, the Brazilians were taken completely by surprise, and were initially skeptical that an actual tropical cyclone could have formed in the South Atlantic. It was declared a tropical storm on March 10 and became extratropical late on March 12. However, these downpours tend to come and go rather than lingering. , Early on March 14, 2011, the Navy Hydrographic Center-Brazilian Navy (SMM), in coordination with the National Institute of Meteorology, were monitoring an organizing area of convection near the southeast coast of Brazil.  Rain totals from 100 to 180 mm (3.9 to 7.1 in) were observed associated with the storms and wind topped 75 km/h (47 mph) in Cabo de Santa Marta. Not this boy. Bob Henson is a meteorologist and writer at weather.com, where he co-produces the Category 6 news site at Weather Underground.  Over the next couple of days the system continued to move south-eastwards before it transitioned into an extratropical cyclone during February 8. While the system was threatening the Brazilian state of Santa Catarina, a newspaper used the headline "Furacão Catarina," which was originally presumed to mean "furacão (hurricane) threatening (Santa) Catarina (the state)". Meteogroup Weathercast: Do hurricanes form in the South Atlantic? It moved westward over an area of warm waters while the circulation became better defined. A tropical or subtropical depression is less than 34 knots. He spent many years at the National Center for Atmospheric Research and is the author of “The Thinking Person’s Guide to Climate Change” and “Weather on the Air: A History of Broadcast Meteorology.”.  Two subtropical depressions formed in 2014: one in late-February 2014 and the other in late-March 2014. This boy is a sub-tropical depression with an extended front which included secondary low pressures.  On March 29, a north-westerly flow encroached on the systems environment, which caused the system to rapidly move towards 40S and the cold waters that were present to the south of 40°S. After moving southwestward for a couple of days, on March 26, Iba turned southeastward.  It was also suggested that an effort should be made to locate any possible systems using satellite imagery and synoptic data; however, it was noted that this effort may be hindered by the lack of any geostationary imagery over the basin before 1966. On May 20, 2019, a subtropical depression formed east of Rio de Janeiro. CS1 maint: multiple names: authors list (, Center for Weather Forecast and Climatic Studies, Unusual areas of tropical cyclone formation, "Monthly Tropical Cyclone Summary March 2004", "Subject: Tropical Cyclone Names: G6) Why doesn't the South Atlantic Ocean experience tropical cyclones? On January 21, 2020, the Brazilian Navy Hydrographic Center began to monitor an area of persisting thunderstorms near São Paulo for potential subtropical cyclone development. , A tropical depression formed within a monsoon trough on March 23, 2019, off the coast of Bahia. Showers and thunderstorms are routine in southeast Brazil during the summer wet season. After moving southwestward for a couple of days, on March 26, Iba turned southeastward.  In March 1994, a system that was thought to be weaker than Catarina was spawned but was located over cool and open waters. The weather station owned by MetSul Weather Center in Morro Redondo, Southern Brazil, recorded 278.2 mm (10.95 in) in a 24-hour period.  After international presses started monitoring the system, "Hurricane Catarina" has formally been adopted. A tropical (or warm core) cyclone (area of low pressure) usually forms over warm waters in the tropics. , Iba was the first tropical storm to develop in the basin since Anita in 2010, as well as the first fully tropical system to be named from the Brazilian naming list.. Petrobras (PBR.A) stock is up as WTI crude prices rise ahead of a tropical storm in Texas. The names of significant tropical or subtropical systems will be retired.. Many areas across the planet are already seeing intensified rainfall extremes, while areas from California to Zimbabwe are getting longer dry seasons as well as drought impacts exacerbated by hotter temperatures. Since 2011, the Brazilian Navy Hydrographic Center has assigned names to tropical and subtropical systems in the western side of the basin, near the eastern coast of Brazil, when they have sustained wind speeds of at least 65 km/h (40 mph), the generally accepted minimum sustained wind speed for a disturbance to be designated as a tropical storm in the North Atlantic basin. , A subtropical depression formed southwest of Rio de Janeiro on November 15, 2016.  On March 27, 1974, a weak area of low pressure that had originated over the Amazon River started to intensify further. , On March 10, 2015, the Hydrographic Center of the Brazilian Navy began issuing warnings on Subtropical Depression 3 during early afternoon, while the Center for Weather Forecast and Climatic Studies (CPTEC in Portuguese) already assigned the name Cari for the storm.  It intensified into a subtropical storm and received the name Deni on November 16. Weather Underground provides information about tropical storms and hurricanes for locations worldwide. The public TSR web site provides forecasts and information to benefit basic risk awareness and decision making from tropical storms. On April 10, 1991, what was either a strong tropical depression or a weak tropical storm formed in the eastern South Atlantic, recorded by weather satellites off the coast of Angola. , On February 22, 2006, a baroclinic cyclone intensified quickly and was estimated to have peaked with 1-minute sustained wind speeds of 105 km/h (65 mph), after radar data showed that the system had developed an eye and banding. Francisco was short-lived as a tropical storm, although persisted a long time as a depression before reforming close to the coast of Madagascar. “Another hilly east coast in the tropics and subtropics—the coast of New South Wales and central and southern Queensland in Australia—has had numerous daily totals exceeding 400 mm, with two instances of over 700 mm (even discounting events associated with current or former tropical cyclones).  However, the system did not intensify any further, as it soon encountered unfavorable conditions, and Jaguar eventually dissipated on May 22.  A fourth one formed in late January 2015. Such are the vagaries of offshore sailing. Briefly a minimal subtropical storm, Kurumí funneled moisture into the region from well offshore. Adding on, Cyclone Tino brought considerable damage throughout the South Pacific in the middle portion of the month, and a rare South Atlantic tropical cyclone formed, named Subtropical Storm Kurumí, becoming the first of its kind to be named in January later on in the month. We have already had Kurumi which reached storm level & Mani, & the mid year system in July is still under investigation or open for discussion in regards it being a hurricane Currently A system is off the coast of Brazil from Bravo zone showing good circulation - high Shear is hindering but there is good convergence to the N from which the system is accessing good convective flow Log In Receive full access to our market insights, commentary, newsletters, breaking news alerts, and more.  Between March 11–17, 2006, another system with a warm core developed and moved southward along the South Atlantic Zone, before dissipating.  Guided by a trough and a weak ridge to its north, the system moved slowly southeastward over an area of warm waters, intensifying into Subtropical Cyclone Arani on March 15, as named by the Brazilian Navy Hydrographic Center. During the afternoon of March 9, the system had attained an intensity of 55 km/h (34 mph) and a barometric pressure of 1000 hPa (mbar). The total rainfall through January 27 of 809.7 mm (31.88”) is more than 250% of the January average of 329.1 mm (12.96”), according to a statement from Brazil’s national meteorological institute, INMET.  The last advisory was issued on Kurumí later that same day. Eventually, however, they were convinced, and adopted the previously unofficial name "Catarina" for the storm, after Santa Catarina state. The 24-hour record in Belo Horizonte may seem on the low side for a place that gets more than 60” of rain in a typical year. A ferocious drought from 2014 to 2016 led to severe water restrictions in São Paulo, the world’s 12th-largest urban area. Take control of your data. The cyclone killed 3 to 10 people and caused millions of dollars in damage in Brazil.  A study was subsequently performed and published during 2012, which concluded that there had been 63 subtropical cyclones in the Southern Atlantic between 1957 and 2007. Interesting things going on in the SAtl right now. On March 27, Iba weakened into a tropical depression and turned to the east, before dissipating on March 28. This page will not be updated frequently. ", "Frequently Asked Questions: How do tropical cyclones form?

The system brought locally heavy rains in southern Brazil and northeast of Uruguay that exceeded 200 millimeters within a few hours, in some locations of Southern Rio Grande do Sul, northwest of Pelotas. Theories concerning infrequency of occurrence. The names are assigned in alphabetical order and used in rotating order without regard to year. Rare January Depression in Central Pacific; Atlantic Subtropical Storm Next Week? , On January 5, 2016, the Hydrographic Center of the Brazilian Navy issued warnings on a subtropical depression that formed east of Vitória, Espírito Santo.  On December 29, Oquira continued to strengthen, deepening while heading further southwestward away from the Brazilian mainland, and reaching a pressure of 1,002 millibars (29.6 inHg). Strong wind shear, which disrupts the formation of cyclones, as well as a lack of weather disturbances favorable for development in the South Atlantic Ocean make any strong tropical system extremely rare.  Damages and flooding were observed in Cerrito, São Lourenço do Sul and Pedro Osório. Showers and thunderstorms will be widely scattered later this week but may increase next week, with daily amounts of 5 to 20 mm (0.20” – 0.80”) possible. According to the United States National Hurricane Center, the system was probably either a tropical depression or a tropical storm at its peak intensity.  On early December 11, as it moved more southwardly, Guará attained its peak intensity while transitioning to an extratropical cyclone. One of the hardest-hit areas was the city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil’s sixth largest. The most difficult challenge of the entire race was with the sub-tropical storm Kurumi which developed off Rio as the fleet was approaching. A low pressure area formed over the Congo Basin on April 9.  Later that day a low pressure area developed just east of Vitória, Espírito Santo, and by 12:00 UTC, the system organized into a subtropical depression, located about 140 km (87 mi) east of Campos dos Goytacazes. This is the only recorded tropical cyclone i… Most tropical or subtropical cyclones in the South Atlantic spin harmlessly well away from the coast. Catarina—the first hurricane-strength tropical cyclone on record in the South Atlantic—swept onto land northeast of Rio de Janeiro in late March 2004, causing as many as 11 indirect fatalities and some $350 million in damage (USD 2004). , Cari brought heavy rainfall, flooding and landslides to eastern cities of Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul states. Tropical cyclones in 2020. , The following names are published by the Brazilian Navy Hydrographic Center's Marine Meteorological Service and used for tropical and subtropical storms that form in the area west of 20ºW and south of equator in the South Atlantic Ocean.  Later that day, the system's winds intensified, and it was named Oquira by the Brazilian Hydrographic Center. Tropical Storm Bill is approaching the oil producing state off the Texas coast in the Gulf of Mexico.  Later, it intensified quickly and then transitioned into a subtropical storm shortly before 22:00 BRST (00:00 UTC on December 5), with the name Eçaí assigned by the Hydrographic Center of the Brazilian Navy.  During March 2004, an extratropical cyclone formally transitioned into a tropical cyclone and made landfall on Brazil, after becoming a Category 2 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale. Even as Kurumí moved away from the coast, a pronounced ribbon of moisture extended inland all the way to central and even northern Brazil. During April 1991, these assertions were proven false, when the United States' National Hurricane Center (NHC) reported that a tropical cyclone had developed over the Eastern South Atlantic. There is credible historical evidence of two totals exceeding 500 mm in the 1840s, before the start of official observations, at sites within what is now metropolitan Sydney.”. Below is a list of notable South Atlantic tropical and subtropical cyclones. Even these peak values are surprisingly modest by global standards. On January 28, 2009, a cold-core mid to upper-level trough in phase with a low-level warm-core low formed a system and moved eastward into the South Atlantic. The world watched in horror late last year as massive wildfires—the worst in more than a decade, following years of progress in fire reduction—struck the Amazon of northern Brazil. In the eastern U.S., most cities are less rainy on average than Belo Horizonte yet have seen higher one-day totals. Could a Rare Tropical Storm Form in the South Atlantic Ocean?

Imelda continued to strengthen, as indicated by scatterometer wind data, surface observations, and Doppler radar data, reaching its peak intensity of 40 kt at 1745 UTC when it Located about 250 miles (400 km) north of Rio de Janeiro, the metro area has about 2.5 million people. The odds of a tropical system developing in the Gulf of Mexico are on the rise late this week. One that still has a high pitch voice and won't do much damage when it hits you. Myrtle of Bonnievale: Increasing our sail armour. (The list of storm names now maintained and assigned by the Brazil Navy Hydrographic and Navigation Center is not part of the World Meteorological Organization’s naming system for tropical cyclones in ocean basins around the world.).  This is the only recorded tropical cyclone in the eastern South Atlantic. A tropical depression formed off the east coast of Brazil Wednesday, but failed to become an extremely rare South Atlantic Ocean tropical storm.  On March 12, the Brazilian Hydrographic Center downgraded Cari to a subtropical depression, while the CPTEC stated that the storm had become a "Hybrid cyclone". Track forecast errors were below the recent mean value. Briefly a minimal subtropical storm, Kurumí funneled moisture into the region from well offshore. There are rare exceptions. , Between December 23, 2013 and January 24, 2015, the CPTEC and Navy Hydrography Center monitored four subtropical depressions to the south of Rio de Janeiro. The team was also awarded the First Youth Prize and managed to sail through Cyclone Kurumi, a tropical storm they encountered during their race.  The first possible tropical cyclone developed within a trough of low pressure, to the southeast of Salvador, Brazil on January 18. On 14 May, an upper-level trough moved into the central Gulf of Mexico and Within the North Atlantic Ocean, tropical or subtropical cyclones are named by the National Hurricane Center (NHC/RSMC Miami) when they are judged to have intensified into a tropical storm with winds of at least 34 kn (39 mph; 63 km/h). South Atlantic tropical cyclones are unusual weather events that occur in the Southern Hemisphere.  Increased swells along the coast prompted ocean travel warnings. , During 2004, the large-scale conditions over the South Atlantic were more conducive than usual for subtropical or tropical systems, with 4 systems noted. There may be other storms used since updating this page. South Atlantic tropical cyclones are unusual weather events that occur in the Southern Hemisphere.

Tropical Storm Olga was named in the Gulf of Mexico Friday afternoon, with heavy spiral rain bands and winds of 40 mph. , Two subtropical cyclones affected both Uruguay and Rio Grande do Sul state in Brazil between 2009 and 2010. The National Hurricane Center also began monitoring the system as Low SL90.  The subtropical cyclone then became a weak trough on November 19, according to the CPTEC.  The Intertropical Convergence Zone drops one to two degrees south of the equator, not far enough from the equator for the Coriolis force to significantly aid development. Between 9 a.m. local time on Thursday and Friday, January 23–24, Belo Horizonte racked up 171.8 mm (6.76”) of rain—the city’s largest amount for any 24-hour period in records dating back to 1910. Our Tropical storm, Cyclone Kurumi, is named after a mere a young boy.  Very strong vertical wind shear in the troposphere is considered a deterrent.  However, there were questions about how tropical the system was, as it did not separate from the westerlies or the baroclinic zone it was in.
