Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE)[edit]

ACE (104kt²) (Source) — Storm:
1 Total: 0

The table on the right shows the ACE for each storm in the season. ACE is, broadly speaking, a measure of the power of the hurricane multiplied by the length of time it existed, so storms that last a long time (like Hurricane Bertha (2008)) as well as particularly strong hurricanes (like Hurricane Ike), have high ACEs. ACE is only officially released for full advisories on tropical systems at or exceeding 34 knots (39 mph, 63 km/h) or tropical storm strength. Subtropical storms are not included in season totals, and thus values accrued while storms like Subtropical Storm Andrea (2007) were subtropical will not be included in its ACE total.

Timeline of recent events[edit]

Storm names[edit]

The following names are to be used for named storms that formed in the north Atlantic in 2009. The names not retired from this list will be used again in the 2015 season. This is the same list used for the 2003 season. Larry, Mindy, Nicholas, Odette, and Peter would be named (if they formed) for only the second time. Names that were not assigned are marked in gray. The World Meteorological Organization had retired three names in the spring of 2004: Fabian, Isabel, and Juan. They have been replaced this season (the 2009 season) by Fred, Ida, and Joaquin respectively.
