International Atlantic & Pacific Cyclones: The Americas beset by tropical activity. Wed 18 Sep 2019 As the Northern Hemisphere tropical cyclone season gets into full stride, this NOAA image via the UK Met Office shows six tropical storms or cyclones in a favoured belt either side of Central and southern North America. Kiko and Mario are heading west into the North Pacific; Tropical Storm Lorena, soon to develop into cyclone strength, brushes up the west coast of Mexico; Tropical Storm Imelda has just crossed the Texas coast; major Tropical Cyclone Humberto heads into the Atlantic and is about to side-swipe Bermuda only a week after the north of the country was devastated by TC Dorian; and Tropical Storm Jerry is moving into the Caribbean to provide the next threat.

Provisional records set or equalled today

Obvious errors have been corrected, however this is realtime data which has not yet been validated. Full validation of official records by the BoM Quality Management System (QMS) is a much more complex process and may take some months. Go here for further information on this records section and how the QMS works. These provisional records are based on data received as at 1413 EST on 19/09/2019.
