Hurricanes & Tropical Storms - June 2011


NCDC transitioned to the nClimDiv dataset on Thursday, March 13, 2014. This was coincident with the release of the February 2014 monthly monitoring report. For details on this transition, please visit our public FTP site and our U.S. Climate Divisional Database site.


Note: This report catalogs recent tropical cyclones and places each basin's tropical cyclone activity in a climate-scale context. It is not updated in real time. Users seeking real time status and forecasts of tropical cyclones should visit The National Hurricane Center.

Atlantic Basin

Tropical Storm Arlene was the first tropical cyclone for the Atlantic basin during the 2011 hurricane season. Arlene formed into a tropical storm late on June 28th over the Bay of Campeche, and slowly moved westward, making landfall near Tampico in northeastern Mexico. Arlene is now the most recycled tropical cyclone name in the Atlantic, having been used nine other times (1959, 1963, 1967, 1971, 1981, 1987, 1993, 1999, and 2005). On average, the Atlantic basin experiences a June tropical cyclone once every two years. At its strongest, Arlene had sustained winds of 65 mph (105 km/hr) and a central pressure of 993 mb. Arlene made landfall late in the day on June 30th, at its strongest point. According to satellite estimates, approximately 10 inches (254 mm) of rain fell over the mountainous region of Mexico, creating flash floods and mudslides. Media reports claim that 22 people were killed. The region had been experiencing extreme drought for several months, making the soil more prone to runoff and flash flooding.
