By 00:00 UTC the following day, it intensified into Tropical Storm Gert. Such systems are termed "Potential Tropical Cyclones". Nate accelerated north-northwestward due to strong deep-layer south-southeasterly flow, with the storm reaching the Gulf of Mexico by early on October 7. [40] Many structures were leveled, while floodwaters trapped thousands of citizens. [101] At the height of the storm, more than 6.7 million electrical customers were without power. The cyclone moved southeast, becoming disconnected from the surrounding environment and gradually losing its frontal characteristics. Moving northeastward due to a large mid-latitude trough over the southeastern United States and western Gulf of Mexico, the depression intensified into Tropical Storm Philippe about six hours later. A reconnaissance aircraft investigating the system east of the Caribbean on September 5 found the cyclone at Category 5 intensity. Look, climate change is real. Global atmospheric and hydrological conditions, Learn how and when to remove this template message, 2016–17 South-West Indian Ocean cyclone season, 2017–18 South-West Indian Ocean cyclone season, Regional Specialized Meteorological Center, Tropical cyclones and climate change § 2017, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, 2017 Mediterranean tropical cyclone season, "Irma and Harvey should kill any doubt that climate change is real", "Why Hurricane Irma Could Hurt, a Lot: Much Lies in Harm's Way", "Miami's mayor on Hurricane Irma: 'If this isn't climate change, I don't know what is, "Scott Pruitt says it's not the time to talk climate change. Harvey's remnants continued into the Bay of Campeche, where more conducive environmental conditions led to the re-designation of a tropical depression around 12:00 UTC on August 23, and subsequent intensification into a tropical storm six hours later. However, the predicted El Niño failed to develop, with cool-neutral conditions developing instead, later progressing to a La Niña—the second one in a row. Amid an environment of low wind shear and warm ocean temperatures, Irma rapidly strengthened, becoming a hurricane early on August 31 and then a major hurricane less than 24 hours thereafter. [60], Late on July 15, the NHC highlighted a low-pressure trough over the central Atlantic as having the potential to develop into a tropical cyclone in the coming days. Initially accompanied by a large area of convection, the showers and thunderstorms quickly diminished by later that day. The greatest storm surge (storm tide minus the astronomical tide) at Fort Pulaski and Charlesto… Low wind shear and warm sea-surface temperatures allowing Jose to quickly strengthen, attaining hurricane intensity late on September 6 and reaching major hurricane status late on September 7. Potential tropical cyclones are not included in this table. Reaching a forward speed of 29 mph (47 km/h), Nate became the fastest-moving tropical cyclone ever recorded in the Gulf of Mexico. In the Greater Houston area, flooding damaged or destroyed more than 300,000 buildings and homes and about 500,000 cars. The wave initially produced disorganized and scattered deep convection as it moved westward. The system weakened to a tropical depression early on August 19 and then degenerated into a tropical wave several hours later. [35] Irma ravaged the northern Leeward Islands and produced a trail of destruction through the Greater Antilles and Southeast United States. All ten of the season's hurricanes occurred in a row—the greatest number of consecutive hurricanes in the satellite era, and tied for the highest number of consecutive hurricanes ever observed in the Atlantic basin. The fourteenth named storm and ninth hurricane of the hyperactive 2017 Atlantic hurricane season, Nate originated from a … [98][99] In Florida, the storm damaged numerous homes and businesses, including more than 65,000 structures in the west-central and southwestern portions of the state alone. The storm quickly weakened after moving inland and degenerated into a remnant low on June 23, dissipating over the Mid-Atlantic on the following day.

After strengthening steadily, Franklin made its first landfall near Pulticub, Quintana Roo, with winds of 60 mph (97 km/h) at 03:45 UTC on August 8. [29] Above-average activity continued throughout June and July with the formations of tropical storms (and a depression) Bret, Cindy, Four, Don, and Emily; however, a majority of these storms were weak and short-lived. The season became only the sixth to feature at least two Category 5 hurricanes, after 1932, 1933, 1961, 2005, and 2007.

[5] On December 14, CSU released a qualitative discussion detailing five possible scenarios for the 2017 season, taking into account the state of the Atlantic multidecadal oscillation and the possibility of El Niño developing during the season. [24] Overall, September's ACE value represented activity about three-and-a-half times more active than the 1981–2010 average for the month. [142], Around 12:00 UTC on October 14, Ophelia strengthened into a Category 3 hurricane and peaked with maximum sustained winds of 115 mph (185 km/h) and a minimum barometric pressure of 959 mbar (28.3 inHg), becoming the easternmost major hurricane in the Atlantic basin on record. [131] By the end of January 2018, only about 65% of electricity on the island had been restored. Preliminary reports indicated that 370 homes were flooded.

Along the coastline of the mainland United States, tropical storm-force gusts cut power to hundreds of citizens; rip currents offshore led to four deaths and numerous water rescues. Typhoon Tembin, known in the Philippines as Typhoon Vinta, was the deadliest tropical cyclone to strike Mindanao since Typhoon Bopha in 2012.

[122] After attaining winds of 90 mph (140 km/h), the storm weakened slightly due to moderate southeasterly wind shear. [96][97], In Turks and Caicos Islands, Irma wrought significant damage to structures and communication infrastructures. [146], In early November, the NHC began to monitor a non-tropical area of low pressure in the central Atlantic, which had formed at the end of a decaying cold front, for potential tropical development. [116] At least 53 municipalities in Mexico were affected by Katia. Despite having a low chance of development, a rapid period of organization occurred over the next 24 hours. [36], A westward-moving tropical wave exited the west coast of Africa on August 31, organizing into Tropical Storm Jose over the open eastern Atlantic by 15:00 UTC on September 5.

However, the season was a slightly below-average season and the first since 1977 season saw no Category 5-equivalent super typhoon. [60] The disturbance was introduced as a potential contender for tropical cyclone formation two days later, as environmental conditions were expected to favor slow organization. Moving northeastward into a region of increasing wind shear and ocean temperatures less than 73 °F (23 °C), Ophelia began rapidly weakening early on October 15, while a strong upper-level trough and jet stream flow caused the storm to begin losing tropical characteristics. [58], Early on June 29, the NHC began tracking a tropical wave embedded within a large envelope of deep moisture across the coastline of western Africa. 1 Only systems that formed either on or after January 1, 2017 are counted in the seasonal totals.

[3] In addition, the numbering that a potential tropical cyclone receives would be retained for the rest of the hurricane season, meaning that the next tropical system would be designated with the following number, even though potential tropical cyclones do not qualify as tropical cyclones. [24] Activity concluded with the formation of Tropical Storm Rina in early November,[43] though the season did not officially end until November 30. [66] Don attained its peak intensity at this time, characterized by winds of approximately 50 mph (80 km/h) as measured by reconnaissance aircraft.
