The 2014 Red Ocean hurricane season was an event in the annual cycle of tropical cyclone formation. The season officially began on June 1 and ended on November 30. These dates conventionally delimit the period each year when most tropical cyclones form in the Red Ocean. However, the formation of tropical cyclones is possible at any time. On June 6, 2014, the first tropical storm of the season, Andrew, formed north of the Jared Isles. Tropical Depression Two formed unusually far east near Jamali on June 14, and shattered the record for most easternmost tropical cyclone in the Red Ocean for the month of June. On July 8, Tropical Storm Betty formed. About 9 days later, the fourth tropical depression formed and it later strengthened into Tropical Storm Clive. The season notably produced Hurricane Mario, which had become the strongest tropical cyclone in recorded history of the basin, shattering the previous record set by Hurricane Omar. However, the record was later once again shattered by the powerful Hurricane Owen two years later in 2016. In November, Hurricane Peta shattered the record as most intense hurricane ever recorded in that respective month during the satellite era. Just two days after Peta shattered a record, Hurricane Samantha, the final system of the season, and the eleventh hurricane of the season shattered the record of most major hurricanes of the season, and due to Samantha, the record high of 7 major hurricanes was reached. In addition, this marked the first such occurrence that November featured two major hurricanes.

Seasonal summaryEdit

Season outlooksEdit

In advance of each hurricane season, forecasts of hurricane activity are issued by the Green City Meteorological Center (GCMC) in Green City. On December 14, 2013, the GCMC made an unofficial prediction of 15 named storms, 7 hurricanes, and 3 major hurricanes. On March 23, 2014, GCMC made another unofficial prediction of 12 named storms, 5 hurricanes, and 2 major hurricanes, as they cited that El Niño was going to be in place in the early portion of the season, most likely until September. On April 1, a new tropical cyclone tracking agency, which is located in Hamilton, Marlton (HMC) made a early prediction of 10-13 named storms, 4-6 hurricanes, and 1-3 hurricanes due to unusual El Niño conditions currently being present. They also stated that the Jared Isles would be less prone to major hurricanes this season, as the Marlton and Granolia border would be more prone due to high SST's in that area, compared to below average SST's near the Jared Isles. On April 5, the Kingville Meteorological Center (KMC) forecasted 7-10 named storms, 3-5 hurricanes, and 1-2 major hurricanes due to the fact that the SST's have been the lowest ever for January, February, and March so far.  On April 27, 2014, GCMC made their last pre-season prediction, as they forecasted 10 named storms, 5 hurricanes, and 2 major hurricanes due to a strong El Niño forming, which hinders tropical cyclone activity. On June 1, 2014, the GCMC made their first mid-season prediction, as they predicted 9 named storms, 5 hurricanes, and 2 major hurricanes, as an El Niño has been fairly strong so far, which is said to hinder tropical cyclone activity. However, they indicated the El Niño could be weaker than originally anticipated. On June 4, 2014 ,the HMC predicted that the El Niño currently present may not be as intense as previously expected, and under their analysis, SST'S and wind shear were near average for this time of year, and indications of a weaker El Niño to a potential neutral year have been hinted. Therfore, their revised forecast was 11-14 named storms, 5-7 hurricanes, and 2-4 major hurricanes. On August 24, 2014, the GCMC issued their mid-season outlook of 17 named storms, 8 hurricanes, and 4 major hurricanes, as they cited that the El Niño is a Modoki, meaning that despite El Niño conditions being in place, activity is enhanced a slight bit in the basin.

Timeline of tropical activity in the 2014 Red Ocean hurricane season

Wikipedia:Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale


Hurricane Andrew Edit

Category 1 hurricane (GCMC)
Andrew2014.png Andrewtrack2014.png
Duration June 5 – June 9
Intensity 85 mph (140 km/h) (1-min),  979 mbar (hPa)
On June 3, an area of low pressure was spawned from a nearby cold front. Over the next couple of days, conditions gradually became more favorable for tropical cyclogenesis. Due to continued organization, a Hurricane Hunter was sent out to investigate the system on June 6. They later found tropical storm-force winds with a closed circulation, which prompted the NHC to upgrade the system to Tropical Storm Andrew, the first named storm of the 2014 season. Andrew was in an unusually warm pool of water, which helped Andrew strengthen furthur into a hurricane. On June 8, Andrew peaked in intensity as a moderate Category 1 hurricane. Shortly thereafter, Andrew began an extratropical transition, and that transition was complete the next day when the NHC announced that Andrew was no longer a tropical cyclone. 

Tropical Depression TwoEdit

Tropical depression (GCMC)
Two2014.png Twotrack2014.png
Duration June 14 – June 15
Intensity 35 mph (55 km/h) (1-min),  1008 mbar (hPa)
On June 11, an unusually vigorous tropical wave emerged off of the Jamalian coast. Initially, meteorologists stated it was just an unusually strong wave which had little to no chances of tropical cyclone development. However, on June 14, the wave developed a low pressure and began to rapidly organize as it tracked into an area of unusually high sea surface temperatures and moderate vertical wind shear. The next day, the NHC classified the system as Tropical Depression Two, because the system had finally developed a closed circulation. Shortly after, Two tracked into an area of high wind shear which made Two weaken back into an open wave the next day. 

Tropical Storm BettyEdit

Tropical storm (GCMC)
Betty2014.png Bettytrack2014.PNG
Duration July 8 – July 13
Intensity 65 mph (100 km/h) (1-min),  993 mbar (hPa)
On July 6, a weak surface trough formed in vicinity of the Jared Isles. Over the next few days, the trough had formed a closed circulation and Hurricane Hunters confirmed that Tropical Storm Betty had formed. Betty later began to quickly organize, and it reached its peak on July 11. The next day, Betty had succumbed to dry air and colder water which weakened Betty into a tropical depression. On July 14, Betty was declared to have completed its extratropical transition.  

Tropical Storm CliveEdit

Tropical storm (GCMC)
Clive2014.png Clivetrack2014.PNG
Duration July 17 – July 21
Intensity 60 mph (95 km/h) (1-min),  996 mbar (hPa)
On July 14, a tropical wave east of the Jared Isles began to organize. It was located in low wind shear and little dry air, which favored strengthening of the system. Due to this, a tropical depression was declared on July 17 after Hurricane Hunter reconaissance aircraft found a closed circulation. Clive would later strengthen to its peak on July 19. However, due to land interaction and the fact is was traveling in a more stable environment, Clive became an open wave on July 21. 

Hurricane DanielleEdit

Category 1 hurricane (GCMC)
Danielle2014.png Danielletrack2014.PNG
Duration July 25 – July 29
Intensity 80 mph (130 km/h) (1-min),  990 mbar (hPa)
On July 22, a vigorous tropical wave exited the Jamalian coast. Over the next few days, the tropical wave moved over warm waters and low wind shear which helped the system acquire a well-defined circulation as well as tropical storm-force winds. On July 25, after a convective burst near the systems center the NHC began issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Danielle, the fourth named storm of the season. Danielle continued to strengthen through the next couple of days until DVORAK estimates helped confirm that the system had attained hurricane strength. However, due to dry air entrainment Danielle strengthened only slightly. On July 28, Danielle was downgraded into a tropical storm and Danielle continued to weaken until it finally became a post-tropical cyclone the next day.

Tropical Storm EthanEdit

Tropical storm (GCMC)
Ethan2014.png Ethantrack2014.PNG
Duration August 1 – August 2
Intensity 40 mph (65 km/h) (1-min),  1007 mbar (hPa)
On July 29, a complex low pressure area formed to the east of the Jared Isles. Over the next couple of days, the weather system showed signs of organization and it was declared as Tropical Storm Ethan on August 1. However, heavy wind shear kept Ethan from strengthening and it eventually weakened into a convectionless vortex on August 2 due to very stable air in vicinity of the system. 

Hurricane FredaEdit

Category 4 hurricane (GCMC)
Freda2014.png Fredatrack2014.PNG
Duration August 8 – August 21
Intensity 155 mph (250 km/h) (1-min),  920 mbar (hPa)
On August 7, a tropical wave emerged off of the Jamalian Coast. Due to interaction with what was the precursor of Gary, wind shear kept the system disorganized. However, the system rapidly organized during the course of August 8 and was then classified as Tropical Storm Freda. Throughout the next couple of days, Freda struggled due to heavy wind shear. This later caused Freda to weaken into a tropical depression on August 10. On August 12, Freda moved into better conditions and restrengthened back into a tropical storm. Freda then began to rapidly organize and then exposively intensified into a Category 2 hurricane on August 14. The next day, Hurricane Hunters investigated Freda and found winds of around 115 mph therefore Freda was classified as a Category 3 hurricane. However, shortly thereafter Freda began rapidly weakening again because the hurricane moved into an area of cooler water north of the Jared Isles. By August 18, Freda reached a pool of above-average SST's which helped benefit her strengthening back into a major hurricane. The next day, Freda rapidly intensified and reached its peak intensity of 155 mph, just below Category 5 status. Shortly after, Freda moved into cooler waters again which helped induce an extratropical transition to take place which was completed by August 21.

Hurricane GaryEdit

Category 5 hurricane (GCMC)
Gary2014.png Garytrack2014.PNG
Duration August 9 – August 18
Intensity 160 mph (260 km/h) (1-min),  914 mbar (hPa)
On August 7, a tropical wave off of the Jamalian Coast began to show signs of organization. Because of very light wind shear and very warm SST's, the wave acquired a closed circulation and was classified as Tropical Depression Eight on August 9. The next day, it became the seventh tropical storm of the season and was named Gary. Gary continued to intensify and reached hurricane status on August 11. Gary began to develop an eyewall and became annular in nature. On August 13, Gary peaked out as a low-end Category 5 hurricane. Shortly thereafter, Gary began weakening due to a mixture of below average SST's and a Fujiwhara interaction with Hurricane Freda. On August 16, Gary made landfall near Fredricksville in the Jared Isles as a Category 2 hurricane. Due to mountainous terrain, Gary rapidly weakened and became a tropical storm the next day. Even though Gary moved into a more conducive environment, Gary rapidly weakened and was later absorbed into Hurricane Freda on August 18. 

Hurricane HenaEdit

Category 1 hurricane (GCMC)
Hena2014.png Henatrack2014.PNG
Duration August 16 – August 18
Intensity 75 mph (120 km/h) (1-min),  976 mbar (hPa)
On August 13, a subtropical low formed into the far north-central Red Ocean. The low gradually gained organization and it transitioned into Tropical Storm Hena on August 16. Despite cold water anomalies, Hena became a hurricane on August 17. However, this intensification was very brief as the next day Hena transitioned into a powerful extratropical cyclone which later went on to impact the Wagner Coast. Damage was estimated at around 1 million from Freda and no casualities were reported.

Tropical Depression TenEdit

Tropical depression (GCMC)
Ten2014.png Tentrack2014.PNG
Duration August 31 – September 1
Intensity 35 mph (55 km/h) (1-min),  1009 mbar (hPa)

On August 27, a tropical wave emerged from Jamali. Over the next few days, the tropical wave moved into favorable conditions and continued to consolidate. On August 31, the NHC began issuing advisories on Tropical Depression Ten south of the Jared Isles. However, wind shear later halted development and Ten dissipated the next day. 

Hurricane IonEdit

Category 4 hurricane (GCMC)
Ion2014.png Iontrack2014.PNG
Duration September 4 – September 12
Intensity 140 mph (220 km/h) (1-min),  940 mbar (hPa)

On August 30, a vigorous tropical wave emerged off of the Jamalian coastline. However, conditions over the course of the next day kept development very little to none at all. Later on September 2, the wave merged with another tropical wave in front of it. Due to favorable environmental conditions, the NHC finally declared the system as Tropical Depression Eleven early on September 4. Late the next day, NHC upgraded it into Tropical Storm Ion after a Hurricane Hunter reconnaissance aircraft mission confirmed it had reached tropical storm status. On September 6, due to nearly perfect conditions, Ion rapidly intensified into a hurricane. Ion continued to rapidly strengthen until it reached a peak intensity as a Category 4 hurricane early on September 9. As Ion began to reach cooler water, it began to weaken. Hurricane watches and warnings were issued for most of the Granolian coastline and the extreme northeastern portion of Marlton. A day prior to landfall south of the Granolian Tip as a Category 2 hurricane, a large evacuation occurred which rivaled Wendi’s from a year earlier. After moving inland, Ion rapidly weakened over mountainous terrain and emerged over cooler water on September 11 which helped Ion complete an extratropical transition the next day. Total losses from Ion have been calculated to be around ~$10 billion (USD) in damages and a fatality total of around 223 with 22 of those being indirect.

Tropical Storm JackieEdit

Tropical storm (GCMC)
Jackie2014.png Jackietrack2014.PNG
Duration September 5 – September 7
Intensity 45 mph (75 km/h) (1-min),  1008 mbar (hPa)

On September 4, a tropical disturbance formed off the TCFB. Over the next couple of days, the disturbance took advantage of favorable environmental conditions. During a Hurricane Hunter reconnaissance aircraft mission, it was confirmed that the system became a tropical storm, and was given the name of Jackie. Upon formation, conditions became increasingly unfavorable but tropical storm watches and warnings were issued for the Jared Isles. The next day, it was confirmed that Jackie moved ashore near Seashell Shores. Due to land interaction, Jackie rapidly weakened and became a remnant low on September 7.

Tropical Storm KobyEdit

Tropical storm (GCMC)
Koby2014.png Kobytrack2014.PNG
Duration September 13 – September 15
Intensity 60 mph (95 km/h) (1-min),  1005 mbar (hPa)

On September 13, after NOAA dropsondes and a Hurricane Hunter aircraft helped confirm a tropical storm formed, it was given the name Koby. Over the next day or so, Koby moved northwestward away from the Jared Isles as he dealt with heavy wind shear. Due to the heavy wind shear, Koby weakened into a tropical depression late on September 14. The next day, Koby was declared as a remnant low because of the increasingly hostile environment and lack of a closed circulation. 

Hurricane LeahEdit

Category 3 hurricane (GCMC)
Leah2014.PNG Leahtrack2014.PNG
Duration September 19 – September 22
Intensity 115 mph (185 km/h) (1-min),  958 mbar (hPa)

On September 17th, a tropical wave started to organize south of the Jared Isles. Because the wave was embedded in moderate wind shear, tropical development was kept to a minimum. However, over the next few days, the system began to organize, and on September 20, a Hurricane Hunter reconaissance aircraft declared the system as Tropical Storm Leah, skipping tropical depression status entirely. Conditions around Leah quickly began to improve as eventually the storm quickly intensified into a hurricane the next day. Early on September 22, Leah rapidly intensified reached a peak of 120 mph. Shortly thereafter, wind shear kicked in yet again which induced a weakening trend which would lead to the transition into an extratropical cyclone on September 24. 

Hurricane MarioEdit

Category 5 hurricane (GCMC)
Mario2014.png Mariotrack2014.PNG
Duration September 20 – October 1
Intensity 185 mph (295 km/h) (1-min),  892 mbar (hPa)

On September 17, a vigorous tropical wave moved off the coast of Jamali. Because this wave was so large and produced heavy rains, Jamali, in some places felt record rainfall. Over the next few days, the system moved westward as it began to organize. Due to persistent organization, the NHC classified the system as Tropical Depression Fifteen on September 20. Over the course of the next day, Fifteen quickly strengthened into Tropical Storm Mario. Mario eventually continued strengthening until the system became a hurricane on September 22, then meteorologists at the National Hurricane Center in Kingville stated that Mario was rapidly strengthened and then on September 23, Mario became classified as a Category 3 major hurricane. However, NHC's service later went down after a vigorous tropical wave in the area disrupted satellite signals. 12 hours later, NHC restored their service and Mario explosively intensified into a Category 5 hurricane, and officials at NHC announced the hurricane could strengthen to be one of the strongest ever recorded. By September 25, Mario explosively intensified to beat Hurricane Omar's original record as strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Red Ocean, beating Omar by 6 mbars in minimum pressure. However, this record was later once again surpassed by Hurricane Owen in 2016, which defeated the previous record to have 200 mph winds and a minimum pressure of 874 mbar, beating Mario's record by 18 millibars and a 15 mph wind difference. Shortly thereafter, Mario began an eyewall replacement cycle which is typical in powerful hurricanes. This eyewall replacement cycle helped lead Mario to weaken all the way down to Category 2 status on September 30. Later that day, hurricane watches and warnings were issued in Weil and northern Granolia for the first time since Tropical Storm Earl in 2010. As Mario was moving into colder water, Mario bottomed down to a 90 mph Category 1 hurricane by the time the hurricane made landfall. Due to the system's large size as being one of the largest hurricanes ever recorded, storm surge was very high and in some of the areas in Weil and northern Granolia, it was unprecedented. This led Mario to cause a total of around $12 billion dollars in damage and 58 total deaths. Shortly thereafter, Mario became extratropical and then went on to merge with a powerful extratropical cyclone which would affect the Wagner Coast. 

Tropical Storm NanetteEdit

Tropical storm (GCMC)
Nanette2014.png Nanettetrack2014.PNG
Duration October 10 – October 12
Intensity 60 mph (95 km/h) (1-min),  1001 mbar (hPa)

On October 8, an area of convection began to persist east of East Island. At the time, conditions were deemed as favorable for development, and most computer model runs indicated a hurricane moving over East Island. By October 10, buoy observations and NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft data helped confirm Tropical Storm Nanette had formed. Because Nanette formed so close to East Island, tropical storm watches and warnings were issued immediately. Late the next day, Nanette made landfall as a moderate tropical storm. Through October 12, she rapidly weakened into a tropical depression and eventually just a remnant trough by October 13. The remnant moisture of Nanette was trackable until October 17, when the system got absorbed by a larger tropical wave.

Hurricane OswaldEdit

Category 2 hurricane (GCMC)
Oswald2014.png Oswaldtrack2014.PNG
Duration October 10 – October 13
Intensity 100 mph (155 km/h) (1-min),  969 mbar (hPa)

On October 7, a tropical low formed to the south of the Jared Isles in combination with another tropical wave which had merged with the system. Over the next couple of days, the system split in half and that half became a strong tropical low which came very close to reaching tropical cyclone status. Nonetheless, the top half became classified as Tropical Depression Seventeen on October 10. Due to favorable conditions, the system strengthened into Tropical Storm Oswald on October 11 and then rapidly intensified to reach a peak as a minimal Category 2 hurricane on October 12. Thereafter, Oswald continued to weaken until the system transitioned into an extratropical cyclone the next day. 

Hurricane PetaEdit

Category 5 hurricane (GCMC)
Peta2014.png Petatrack2014.PNG
Duration November 1 – November 6
Intensity 160 mph (260 km/h) (1-min),  911 mbar (hPa)

On October 30, a small tropical low developed south of East Island. In part of very favorable environmental conditions, the system rapidly organized into Tropical Depression Eighteen on November 1, and then into Tropical Storm Peta later that day. Over the next couple of days, dry air kicked in which disrupted and weakened Peta's circulation which led NHC to downgrade the system into a tropical depression on November 2. However, late that night, Peta began to rapidly organize as the system grew and intensified from a tropical depression to a strong Category 1 hurricane in a span of 24 hours. Peta then began to explosively intensify, and became a Category 4 hurricane on November 4. During that time, a ship passed through Peta but never re-emerged out of the hurricane, according to the Marlton government, so about 25 people remain missing. Late on November 4, Peta reached a peak as a powerful monster Category 5 hurricane and became the second-strongest hurricane of the season, behind Mario. In addition to this, Peta became the most powerful hurricane ever recorded during the month of November. Over the course of the next day or so, Peta began to undergo an eyewall replacement cycle which induced weakening. However, Peta was also moving into cooler waters so an extratropical transition began which was eventually completed on November 6, as she passed over Balbombe Island as a destructive system, that became their most memorable hurricane in over 20 years and costliest since the 1930s. 

Subtropical Storm RileyEdit

Subtropical storm (GCMC)
Riley2014.png Rileytrack2014.PNG
Duration November 3 – November 4
Intensity 50 mph (85 km/h) (1-min),  993 mbar (hPa)

On November 2, a non-tropical low began to rapidly develop north of the Jared Isles. Over the next day or so, marginally favorable conditions helped benefit this low and it was eventually declared as Subtropical Storm Riley late on November 3. However, because the system was already moving into an unfavorable environment, it weakened and transitioned into a minimal extratropical cycle later the next day. 

Hurricane SamanthaEdit

Category 4 hurricane (GCMC)
Samantha2014.png Samanthatrack2014.PNG
Duration November 4 – November 9
Intensity 130 mph (215 km/h) (1-min),  948 mbar (hPa)

On November 2, a small rainband split off from Hurricane Peta. In part of favorable environmental conditions, the system quickly organized to be classified as Tropical Depression Twenty on November 4. The system continued to organize and became Tropical Storm Samantha early the next day. Due to warm waters and light wind shear, Samantha intensified and became a hurricane late that night. Being embedded in the same area that Peta was not that long ago, Samantha began to rapidly intensify and peaked as a minimal Category 4 hurricane on November 6. Prior to Samantha reaching its peak intensity, the hurricane moved over the small island called Janele Island and caused moderate structural damage and caused 2 deaths. Samantha later began to quickly weaken which lead the hurricane to weaken into a tropical storm on November 9 and eventually an extratropical cyclone later that day.

Storm namesEdit

The following names will be used for identifying storms in the Red Ocean during 2014. The names not retired from this list will be used again for the 2020 season. This is the same list used in the 2008 season with the exception of Andrew and Oswald, which respectively replaced Adolfo and Omar. Andrew and Oswald were used to name storms for the first time in 2014. Names that are currently active are marked in bold, and unused names are marked with an asterik (*).

Retirement Edit

At the retirement conference, the decision was reached to retire three names off of the 2014 naming list: Gary, Ion, Mario, Peta. However, when the final reports from Samantha were analyzed, Samantha, as well was retired off the naming list. These names will never be used again. They are being replaced with Gene, Ivar, Mason, Paige, and Stephanie. This ties the season with 1986 for having the second most amount of names retired for a season, after the most recent 2013 season which produced 6 retirements.
