Hurricane Storm History and Weather

You may not be aware of it, but the weather has something to do with storm history. The nature of the atmosphere on earth is what produces the type of wind and precipitation we see. When this weather is in a favorable state, more severe storms will be expected.

Storms will have varying intensities as well. Storms can be seen as low or as high as they like. The level of the rain and snow is what makes the difference when it comes to the intensity of the storm. It is also essential to note that these factors affect the direction the storm travels.

We can not tell just by looking at the weather how the storm will behave, but we can, however, determine the kind of behavior the storm will have with the kind of wind, wind speed and gust, and the average duration and length of the storm. Storms are also classified as violent or not so violent. Violent storms bring heavy rainfall or flooding to large areas. Non-violent storms produce windy showers.

For example, if there is a strong system moving through the area, we can expect storm damage to large areas. On the other hand, if the system is not so strong, we may only see small amounts of damage and wind damage to isolated areas.

Meteorologist must consider not only the number of my the storm makes, but also the location, type and intensity of precipitation. They must also study storm history to determine what will happen in the future. Weather forecasting is a science which has much to do with studying weather history.

Storms can last for several days or a week. The average duration for severe storms is around two to four days. If the hurricane hits a city or coastal area, then the loss could be much higher than if the storm has a shorter duration. You should not go to a city or coastal area until you have learned the risk and located in a safe area to stay. The same goes for smaller areas if you are not near water. Some people make the mistake of thinking they can “shelter in place” in case of storm, when in fact that is extremely dangerous.

The best advice is to be prepared, especially in the case of a large storm. You should know your evacuation routes, know what to do in case of an emergency, and know where to shelter in case of a fire. Do not leave anything to chance.
