The 2088 Atlantic hurricane season was a very active one. The season began on June 1 and ended on November 30. These dates usually delimit the period of storm formation every year, but storms can form at any part of the year. The season began with the formation of Tropical Storm Aaron on June 2 and ended with the dissipation of Tropical Depression Twenty on November 16. Overall, the 2088 Atlantic Hurricane Season produced 20 tropical cyclones, 18 of which strengthened to become a Tropical Storm, Ten attained hurricane intensity, and eight hurricanes achieved major hurricane intensity. The scale of activity this year was very active, with 20 storms. The strongest storm in the season was Hurricane Laticia, a very strong and catastrophic Category 5 hurricane. It wrecked havoc in places such as the Carolinas, New York, New England, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland on early to mid September.

The most notable storms this season were Francelia, Hannah, Laticia, Oliver, Paris, and Roland. Hurricane Francelia was a strong Category 3 storm that struck the Carribean, Florida, and the East Coast of the US causing $7 billion damages and 195 fatalities, most of which are from Hispaniola and Dominican Republic. Hurricane Hannah was a majorly strong Category 4 hurricane that struck New England, New York, the Carolinas, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland, with damages amounting up to $10 billion and 68 casualties. The only Category 5 hurricane of the season, Hurricane Laticia, also struck the Carolinas, New York, New England, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland causing damage amounting up to $59.5 billion and 856 deaths were blamed on the Hurricane. Hurricane Oliver struck the Carribean and Florida as a major Category 3 hurricane on late September, causing $6.3 billion damage, but only 1 death occured. This was because of the forced evacuation a few days before the hurricane struck. A very strong Category 4 hurricane, Hurricane Paris, caused catastrophe in the same places where Hurricane Hannah and Laticia struck a few months prior, causing $42 billion damage and 601 deaths. Hurricane Roland, a low-end Cat. 4 storm, struck Honduras and Nicaragua as a low-end Cat.4 storm, causing $843 million damage and 1,906 fatalities.

Tropical Storm Aaron

Tropical storm (SSHWS)
Forrest1986101700zvis.jpg TSAaron.png
Duration June 2 – June 6
Peak intensity 70 mph (110 km/h) (1-min)  991 mbar (hPa)
Main Article: Tropical Storm Aaron (2088)

On June 1, NOAA started to monitor an unorganized tropical wave that emerged off the coast of Africa. After entering in favorable conditions, the tropical wave became Tropical Depression One on June 2. Strengthening a little more, NOAA upgraded it to a Tropical Storm, earning the name Aaron. The tropical system had itself gather some punch and eventually attained peak intensity as a 70mph and 991mbar storm on June 3. Surprisingly, the strong system, which was in verge of hurricane intensity, developed a well noticeable circulation and a well defined eye on June 3. After encountering high wind shear and low humidity, Tropical Storm Aaron started to fall apart. By June 4, Tropical Storm Aaron was nothing but a weak remnant low heading for the North. The remnants of Tropical Storm Aaron lasted a long duration, and caused severe flooding on Ireland and on the British Isles before dissipating just on the south of Iceland.

Overall, Tropical Storm Aaron caused $18 million damage and 4 indirect deaths. Tropical Storm Aaron was originally upgraded to a 75mph hurricane on operation, but it was turned down after the storm showed no evidence of hurricane clouds on June 3. Tropical Storm Aaron was also the first Tropical Storm to develop a well defined eye since Tropical Storm Fay of 2008.

Tropical Storm Belinda

Tropical storm (SSHWS)

Duration June 5 – June 9
Peak intensity 60 mph (95 km/h) (1-min)  988 mbar (hPa)
Main Article: Tropical Storm Belinda (2088)

On June 4, NOAA started to concern a weak tropical wave that emerged off the coast of Africa. NOAA upgraded it into a tropical depression after a few hours, and a tropical storm shortly thereafter, achieveing the name "Belinda". Tropical Storm Belinda started to gather strength and peaked as a 60mph and 988 mbar Tropical Storm. While east of Georgia, Belinda's outer rainbands caused minor flooding in South Carolina. Moving north and nearing the North Carolina, Belinda caused moderate crop damage and minor flooding especially in the Cape Hatteras region. Avoiding land and encountering cool seawater and high wind shear, Tropical Storm Belinda weakens. By June 9, Belinda was a weak depression. Several hours later, Belinda degenerated to a remnant low. Moving east-northeast, Tropical Storm Belinda makes landfall as a weak remnant low in Ireland, causing extensive flooding and moderate tree damage.

Albiet Belinda didn't make landfall in the USA and made landfall in Ireland as a remnant low, Belinda caused $153 million damage and caused 42 fatalities, mostly from rip currents. Also, Belinda caused an EF1 tornado to touch down in Georgia, causing minimal crop damage. Additionally, a waterspout formed off the coast of North Carolina.

Hurricane Clifford

Category 1 hurricane (SSHWS)
Hurricane Michael (2000).gif C1Clifford.png
Duration June 23 – June 28
Peak intensity 90 mph (150 km/h) (1-min)  979 mbar (hPa)
Main Article:Hurricane Clifford (2088)

On June 22, NOAA started to monitor an area of Intertropical Convergence Zone in the Atlantic. Over favorable conditions, the Intertropical Convergence Zone strengthened to become Tropical Depression Three. Gradually turning to the northwest, the Depression has gathered enough energy to become a Tropical Storm, attaining the name Clifford. After yet many hours over warm waters, humid air, and little amount of wind shear, NOAA upgraded Tropical Storm Clifford to a hurricane. Eventually, Hurricane Clifford attains peak intensity of 80mph and 979 millibars. After a through develops in the north, Clifford starts to weaken and was degenerated to a Tropical Storm in the following day. After the through gains strength, NOAA declared the degeneration of Clifford from a Tropical Storm to a Tropical Depressions. The weak system becomes a remnant low on June 28.

Hurricane Clifford maintained a distance from landforms, so it didn't cause any damage or deaths. Hurricane Clifford was originally a 100mph Category 2 hurricane, but was downgraded to a Category 1 90mph hurricane on post-season analysis.

Tropical Storm Dominica

Tropical storm (SSHWS)
TD 10 03 sept 1988 1439Z.jpg TSDominica.png
Duration July 1 – July 3
Peak intensity 45 mph (75 km/h) (1-min)  1002 mbar (hPa)
Main Article: Tropical Storm Dominica (2088)

Tropical Storm Dominica originated from an area of Low Pressure just north of Cuba. THe low pressure got hindered of developing as it was right above the Bahamas. As the low pressure gradually progressed north-northwest, It quickly strengthened into Tropical Depression Four. Taking advantage of the Gulf Stream, the depression slowly intensified into a Tropical Storm the next day, attaining the name Dominica. Contact with land and moderate wind shear prevented further intensification and Dominica weakened the following day. In a few hours, the tropical storm got downgraded into a Tropical Depression.

Overall, Tropical Storm Dominica caused $4 million dollars of damage and 1 death. The fatality occured after he was struck by a flying rooftile in Savannah, Georgia.
