Hurricane Nora was a landfalling Eastern Pacific storm in August 2021, reaching the coast of Mexico near its peak as a Category 1 hurricane.Oct 4, 2021
Hazards Affecting United States
Even though Nora is not expected to impact the United States with any sort of wind, we will see the moisture get pulled into southern California and the desert Southwest. Pockets of heavy rain will be possible through the middle of next week.
The 2021 season roared to an early start
The final two months of the season were relatively quiet, after nine new named storms formed in September: Larry, Mindy, Nicholas, Odette, Peter, Rose, Sam, Teresa and Victor.

“Nora may bring a dose of tropical moisture to parts of Arizona, Utah, New Mexico and Colorado that could lead to flash flooding during the middle and end of the week,” said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Rob Miller. “It is uncommon for a tropical system to remain organized and track into the Southwest,” said Miller.

Hurricane Ida made landfall in Louisiana on Aug. 29, 2021, which coincidentally was the same day as Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Both historic storms made landfall in Louisiana within six hours and 4 miles of each other.
There are no active storms.
Category 1 Hurricane (SSHWS)
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration The trajectory of Hurricane Nora as of August 29, 2021, as portrayed by federal forecasters and analysts. Rain from the weather system is expected to reach Colorado later in the week.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) -Today the list of hurricane names consist of both men and women names but this wasn’t always the case. From approximately 1953 to 1979, U.S. tropical systems were only named after women. The U.S. decided in the early 1950s, that only used female names would be used for tropical systems.
There are currently no active storms in the North Atlantic, Caribbean Sea, or Gulf of Mexico.
But to make it all the way to the U.S. West Coast, the storms have to traverse a long stretch of ocean water that is far too cold to sustain hurricanes. … “Essentially, the very cold water that upwells off the California coast and gives coastal California such a cool, benign climate also protects it from hurricanes.
Hurricane Nora moves along the Mexico Pacific coastline
The weakened remnants may even bring rains later next week to portions of the United States, including the Southwest, the Great Basin and Central Rockies, forecasters said. … Baja California Sur state could see 4 to 8 inches of rain, with more in isolated spots.
The exact source region for the moisture of the Arizona monsoon is unknown. Researchers have proposed the Gulf of Mexico and/or the Gulf of California as the source regions but conclusive evidence has so far been elusive. By the way, the term “monsoons” as in “when the monsoons arrive …” is a meteorological no-no.
NOAA’s National Hurricane Center does not control the naming of tropical storms. Instead, there is a strict procedure established by the World Meteorological Organization. For Atlantic hurricanes, there is a list of male and female names which are used on a six-year rotation.
|Atlantic Tropical (and Subtropical) Storm Names for 2022|
For Atlantic hurricanes, there is a list of names for each of six years. In other words, one list is repeated every sixth year. The only time that there is a change is if a storm is so deadly or costly that the future use of its name on a different storm would be inappropriate for obvious reasons of sensitivity.
Where are hurricanes most likely to occur in the United States? The Atlantic Coast, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Hawaiian islands are the most vulnerable to hurricanes.
The innermost part of a tropical cyclone is the eye that is typically 20-40 km wide. Inside the eye winds are calm and skies are clear or covered with some cirrus clouds. … The eyewall has the maximum wind speed in a tropical cyclone. The eyewall has typically strong updrafts, heavy rain, and often lightning.

Hurricane Nora tore up the Pacific coast of Mexico late last month, bringing heavy rain and flooding through six states. It made landfall in Jalisco on Aug. 28, bashing Puerto Vallarta as a Category 1 hurricane before continuing north to Nayarit and Sinaloa.
AccuWeather meteorologists say Nora can still bring significant impacts to the country despite losing wind intensity as it tracks northward early this week. … As Nora continues northward, effects will be felt across western Mexico and into the Baja California Peninsula through early week.
Fortunately, hurricanes are rare in Hawaiʻi—the last major hurricane to hit the Islands was Hurricane ʻIniki in 1992, which caused $3.1 billion in damage and devastated the island of Kauaʻi; it killed six people. The most recent was Hurricane Lane, which peaked as a powerful Category 5 hurricane in August 2018.
The most destructive tornado on record in California began in Los Angeles County on Friday, June 5, 1987. The tornado resulted in an estimated $25.0 million in damages, not adjusted for inflation. All data on the number of unique tornadoes recorded in every state between 1950 and 2020 is from NOAA.
Based on current expected track of the storm, it should reach the southern tip of Baja California near Cabo San Lucas as a Category 1 hurricane on Sunday or Monday. Nora should then weaken as it moves north along the East Coast of Baja California.
Though Cabo typically only experiences tropical storms during the hurricane season, the city has seen hurricanes make landfall in the region, most notably Hurricane Odile in 2014.
