Hurricane Delta News

NOTE: Latest news is always at the top, earlier news below.

Tropical Storm Delta STATUS: No Tracking at present.

29th November, 2005 News

Delta has moved swiftly across west Africa overnnight and is now moving towards the northeast as part of a large frontal system. Sustained winds are aprroximately 35kts based upon the latest satellite imagery and current speed is approximately 42mph. The front will continue to move towards the northeast over Europe during the next couple of days. This is the final tracking point of Tropical Storm Delta.

28th November, 2005 Final News

Delta, now moving at approximately 52mph, is approaching the West African coast of Morocco. Delta has sustained winds of 55kts and looks like it may make landfall just to the south of Agadir as an extra-tropical storm. The low lying areas of west and central Morocco could see significant amounts of rainfall over the next few hours, and locations on the plain in the foothills of the mountains could see potentially dangerous mud-slides.

BEWARE: With Delta moving at 50mph and winds of 55kts, the effective windspeed in the NE quadrant i.e. to the south, will be equivalent to 113mph which is hurricane category 3 strength.

28th November, 2005 News Update

NOTE: At 1100AST the NHC published their last map for Tropical Storm Delta when it merged with a frontal system and gained extra-tropical characteristics (Advisory 20). This means there will be no more maps in the archive since reporting of Delta now comes under the jurisdiction of Meteo France (Cyclone Division). This organisation does not publish maps, so I have decided to display the latest visual image on this page, as published by the US Navy Military. There is no reported tracking speed provided with these images so I will be providing an estimation based upon the current and last reported coordinates. Maximum sustained winds will be shown in knots and all times will be in Zulu (GMT). REMINDER: THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL SITE. FOR OFFICIAL FORECASTS AND ADVISORIES ALWAYS CONSULT WITH YOUR LOCAL WEATHER BUREAU.

Tropical Storm Delta continues to barrel across the eastern Atlantic at 29mph and on-track for the Canaries and the west African coast. Delta has sustained winds of 65mph and is expected to pass just to the north of the Canaries today and make landfall in Morocco tomorrow.

27th November, 2005 Final News

Tropical Storm Delta is still on-track for the Canaries and Morocco. Intensity has decreased slightly over the last 6 hours. Delta now has maximum sustained winds of 65mph and is tracking east-northeast at 26mph. It's looking like Delta could eventually make landfall in either Morocco or the western Sahara depending on whether the steering currents remain towards the east or turn towards the east-southeast later. Either way, it looks like Delta is likely to make landfall in west Africa as a tropical or extra-tropical system, which is quite amazing.

27th November, 2005 News Update

Tropical Storm Delta looks to be heading towards the Canaries and Morocco and has increased in intensity. Delta's winds have increased from 50mph to 70mph in the last 6 hours, that's just 4mph below what is needed to be declared as a category 1 hurricane. The NHC is expecting Delta's sustained winds to have reduced within the next 9 hours, but still predicts gale force winds for the Canaries within the next 24 hours. Delta is currently moving northeast at 26mph.

27th November, 2005 News

Well, it's never over 'til it's over, as they say. Yesterday we'd all but written off Delta, but since then it's gained some more organization, a lot more speeed and a distinct turn towards the northeast. On it's current track the NHC expect Delta to pass over the Canaries en-route to the western Sahara, now can you believe that? A tropical cyclone landing in the Sahara! It remains to be seen how much energy gets taken out of Delta as it turns extra-tropical and passes over the islands of the Canaries before we see whether it can hold on to any of it's tropical features as it hits the west African coast. This will certainly be a grand finale to the end of the 2005 Hurricane Season, that's for sure.

26th November, 2005 Final News

After meandering around in the mid Atlantic for a few days it now looks like Tropical Storm Delta is about to make it's final curtain call. Delta turned out to be a real 'Fish Spinner' as many predicted, and it's demise brings the 2005 Hurricane Season to a close with a whimper. Since Delta has winds of just 40mph and the NHC predict it as being a Tropical Depression by the time of the next advisory, this will most likely be the final tracking map for Tropical Storm Delta.

25th November, 2005 Final News Update

Looks like Delta has the NHC and everyone else confused again after taking a turn to the south-southwest and increasing forward speed to 5mph. This is in spite of the NHC's forecast to begin moving northeast, although to be fair, they did state that Delta's motion could remain erratic for a while longer. Maximum sustained winds remain at 65mph.

25th November, 2005 News

Well, after meandering around the mid-Atlantic for a couple of days it looks like Tropical Storm Delta is developing some steering that's going to move it towards the northeast as we suggested on Wednesday. The NHC have Delta currently moving southwest still, although that's probably somewhat erratic, since their latest predictions now have it tracking up towards the Azores then bending off towards the Canaries late in the forecast period as a tropical storm. Might we be seeing the second tropical cyclone this season making landfall in mainland Europe? Only time will tell, remember Hurricane Vince? And here's an NHC map as a little reminder..

24th November, 2005 Final News

Tropical Storm Delta is on the move again and, unexpectedly, it's moving south at near 6mph, although NHC expect this motion to be erratic. Maximum sustained winds remain at 70mph, so no Hurricane Delta just yet.

24th November, 2005 News Update

Tropical Storm Delta is now stationary, not far from it's last reported coordinates. Delta retains it's winds of 70mph and the NHC still believe that Delta will make it into a hurricane before long.

24th November, 2005 News

Tropical Storm Delta continues to make slow progress through the mid-Atlantic, as it's movement is constrained by the larger low it is embedded in. The HNC believe that Delta may achieve hurricane status some time today as it tracks slowly east at 2mph with current maximum sustained winds of 70mph.

23rd November, 2005 Final News

Tropical Storm Delta continues to be embedded in and rotating counter-clockwise inside the larger low, and is slowly moving towards a north-easterly direction. Mid level shear is quite strong to the southeast and the current steering is generally towards the northeast. Delta should now take a bit of a run towards the northeast and edge up towards the Azores over the next 24 to 36 hours.

Tropical Storm Delta materialises out of weather system 95L with a distinct profile. Tropical Storm Delta is being reported by the NHC as moving south-southeast at 9mph with maximum sustained winds of 60 mph. Delta poses no threat to the US and is expected to become an extratropical feature towards the end of next week as it moves towards Europe.

System 95L STATUS: Watching System 95L.

22nd November, 2005 News

Weather system 95L has become more defined over the last 24 hours and now appears to have detached itself from the associated low. With high pressure blocking it's route to the north it looks as if it might start moving towards the southwest and making the transition from it's obvious sub-tropical form into it's tropical form over the next 24 hours. Since it's winds have already been assessed as tropical storm force, when the NHC  classifies it as they undoubtedly will, 95L will become Tropical Storm Delta.

STATUS: Watching System 95L.

21st November, 2005 News

For the last few days a weather system has been tracking slowly through the mid Atlantic. This system presently has sub-tropical properties and is expected to become tropical in the next day or so. Should that turn out to be the case then we will have Tropical Storm Delta on our hands and any hope of an end to the season will evaporate again.

Hurricane Delta - to-be is presently located around coordinates 30N 40W and is looking quite healthy as can be seen in the image opposite. If 95L does indeed morph into Hurricane Delta then it will be the 25th named storm of the 2005 hurricane season.


I shall continue to update the tracking maps until Hurricane Delta dies. I can be found in the central Florida hurricane center forum until the end of November.
