The 2145 Heartland cyclone season officially ran from February 14 or March 1 to October 1, 2145, although these dates just conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in The Heartland. This season, the first storm, Subtropical Storm Veiru, formed on February 5 in an area where the season started on March 1.

Three sets of pre-season predictions were released; the first, on November 18, 2144, was released by the Lox Land Island Weather Observatory, and called for 10 depressions, 8 tropical storms and 3 hurricanes. The official preseason forecast from the Liverpool England Met Service's Hurricane Prediction Centre called for 10 tropical storms, of which 4 would be hurricanes and one would break the Category 3 mark. The final pre-season forecast was released on January 9, and was the most pessimistic of all, released by experts at the Orean College of Meteorology in Orean. It noted that due to La Niña around 17 depressions would form, of which 11 would make Tropical Storm strength, 9 hurricane strength, three major hurricanes and at least one Category 5 hurricane.

Less than one week into the official season, new forecasts were released by the newly-appointed Tropical Cyclone Warning Centre the Lox Land Island Weather Observatory, the official TCWC the Liverpool England MSHPC, and the experts at the Orean College of Meteorology. The LLIWO TCWC announced its new forecast of 15 tropical depressions for the region, 11 tropical storms, 5 of which would reach hurricane strength, and one being a major hurricane, while the MSHPC increased its original prediction to 18 tropical storms, but decreased its forecast of the number of hurricanes to 7, of which only one would crack the Category Three barrier. The Orean College of Meteorology experts cited the unusually active preseason and start of season in increasing their forecast to 22 tropical depressions, 16 tropical storms, 10 hurricanes and three major hurricanes.

The TCWC LLIWO also released their first-ever official forecast for its area of responsibility (a 400 km radius from the coast of the island plus the Lox Gulf), mentioning an expectation for 9 named systems (including depressions).

On June 13, TCWC LLIWO issued its mid-season forecast for the rest of the season. It called for a further three named systems within its area of responsibility (making the total 6, down from 9). However, for the rest of the region, it called for a further 9 depressions - 7 named, with four becoming hurricanes and one major hurricane - totalling 23 depressions, 18 tropical storms, 9 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes. The MSHPC and Orean College of Meteorology issued their mid-season forecasts on July 1, and both were surprisingly low - the MSHPC lowered the expectations for number of named storms from 18 to 16 - meaning just two more named storms for the rest of the season - while the CMO called for just three more storms. Both cited a growing trend of growing shear and dry air present in the tropics, and the MSHPC predicted that most remaining systems of the season would form at more extreme latitudes.

On September 6, the MSHPC announced that it expected no more storms to form this season due to exceptionally high levels of dry air, and that the official end of the season was being brought forward by one month.


Hurricane Veiru

Advisory archive

A non-tropical area of low pressure, embedded in a trough northwest of Cokekila, was first spotted on February 3. Over time a gale centre developed, and by February 5 north of North Boston, Cokekila, the system had detached itself from the trough and gained enough tropical characteristics to be designated Subtropical Storm Veiru. Later that day, it had gained full tropical characteristics and had turned northwards towards Dashake, prompting the emergency release of hurricane warnings for the Dashake coast. By 4 pm local time, the storm had strengthened into a hurricane. Nearing the Dashake coast, localised flooding was reported in some areas, along with three casualties. It strengthened into a Category Two hurricane early the next morning. At 4 am local time, it made landfall. 81 fatalities were reported in the three hours from when it became a Category 2 storm to landfall. Following landfall, the storm turned sharply west-northwest, as had been predicted. Seven people were killed by flying debris and falling trees in Sealdre after the storm started moving away. The storm then moved westwards towards Portland, triggering fears of flooding. However, it exited back into the open waters, and stalled, oscillating in intensity between a depression and a storm. Tornado warnings were needed for Portland for 4 hours. Two tornadoes were reported, with no deaths from either. The system began to lose tropical characteristics, and the MSHPC stopped monitoring it. Veiru caused at least 132 deaths in all, making it the deadliest storm in Heartland history.

Tropical Storm George

Advisory archive
Track of George

Late on February 5, while most attention was focused on Hurricane Veiru, a disturbed area of low pressure that the MSHPC had been monitoring gained enough sustained windspeed to be classified a tropical depression, marking what seemed to be an extraordinarily active pre-season. Early February 6, the storm lost strength and a final advisory was issued. However, the storm had not lost circulation, and not too much later, at 8:30 am HPT (9 am local time), the MSHPC issued an advisory saying the storm had undergone rapid strengthening and was almost a tropical storm. By the 12 pm HPT update, the storm had strengthened into Tropical Storm George. George then started gaining forward speed, and made landfall on Torquay much earlier than expected, but also weaker than expected. 10 deaths were reported from this system.

Tropical Storm Felicia

Advisory archive
Track of Felicia

On March 1, the official start of the hurricane season, a weak low-pressure centre was noticed slightly northeast of where George had dissipated. The system suffered under heavy shear, but managed to move out of it and obtained a closed circulation, which it had been lacking, on March 2, already at tropical storm strength, earning the name Felicia, contributed by Ineptia. The storm quickly weakened back to a tropical depression under increasingly unfavourable conditions, before losing tropicality.

Tropical Storm Four

Advisory archive
Track of TS Four

On March 3, a system which was in extremely favourable conditions for tropical cyclones formed off the coast of Grays Harbor. However, the system unexpectedly lost tropicality within hours of its detection, puzzling many experts. The system was upgraded to a tropical storm in monthly analysis.

Tropical Storm Ruva

Advisory archive

On March 3, another system the MSHPC had been monitoring, east of Schimpol, Liverpool England, had gained a closed circulation and was thus designated a Tropical Depression. This system took a turn to the southeast, and gained enough strength to be designated Tropical Storm Ruva. Bursts of convection away from the reported centre of the storm were then observed to be developing a new circulation, resulting in the declaration of a new tropical depression, which formed from Ruva. It made landfall south of Loyalty Bay and dissipated over the Loyalty Mountains. Three people died indirectly as a result of Ruva.

Hurricane Abaddon

Advisory archive

A circulation developed in an outer thunderstorm band of Ruva's, resulting in it being designated Tropical Depression Six. By the time a second advisory was issued three hours later, it had broken away from the main cyclone and slowed in forward speed, allowing it to intensify in warm waters, becoming a tropical storm. The warm waters allowed for rapid intensification, and Abaddon quickly became a hurricane. However, in the wake of Ruva, it weakened rapidly. Abaddon made landfall as a 60-knot tropical storm about 40 km north of Loyalty Bay. Four people aboard a ship off the PopularFreedom coast were killed by Abaddon. As the system began to dissipate over the Pearson Mountains, a portion of the system broke away and started moving northward, forming a circulation in the Nolan Sound on March 5, and strengthening into a tropical depression over warm waters later that day, prompting the MSHPC to resume advisories. It made a second quick landfall on PopularFreedom, dissipating inland.

Hurricane Yuri (Alpha)

Advisory archive
Track of Yuri

The newly-appointed Tropical Cyclone Warning Centre, the Lox Land Island Weather Observatory, started advising on a tropical storm early on March 4, despite there not being even an official mention of such a system in the MSHPC's Tropical Weather Update. This was attributed to a missed TWU at 3 a.m. HPT on March 4. The MSHPC recognised the storm at 9:45 a.m. the same day. Alpha weakened very rapidly as conditions were not favourable and the MSHPC issued its last advisory barely twelve hours after the first. However, TCWC LLIWO continued issuing advisories on the system, and the MSHPC were embarrassed when the system regained tropical storm status despite them having classified it as "dissipating". The MSHPC resumed advisories at 9:30 a.m. on March 5, and later that day Yuri strengthened into a hurricane. Yuri left the AOR of TCWC LLIWO as a Category 2 hurricane, and shortly after strengthened into the season's first major hurricane. Yuri made landfall on Pearson Cliffs as a Category 4 hurricane. Still moving quickly, it re-emerged over water, proceeding to make an anti-clockwise loop north of Workers Point. Yuri made a second landfall on Workers Point on March 9.

Yuri caused over 1.05 billion in damage, and killed at least 404 people, setting regional records for both death andd destruction.

Tropical Storm Gyarnifq

Advisory archive
Track of Gyarnifq

A low-pressure system embedded in a tropical wave east of PopularFreedom showed signs of organising late on March 4. Despite convection dropping off towards the end of March 5, the MSHPC designated it as a tropical depression early on March 6. Under unfavourable circumstances, the system strengthened into Tropical Storm Gyarnifq. After oscillating between depression and storm strength, Gyarnifq made landfall late on March 7, killing two people. It dissipated over land.

Tropical Storm Oren (TD Beta)

Advisory archive

In mid-April, TCWC LLIWO designated a tropical disturbance in the Lox Gulf as Tropical Depression Beta.02, the second-ever named depression within their AOR after Hurricane Alpha.01 (Hurricane Yuri). The MSHPC issued a special advisory on it declaring a tropical depression at 10:30 p.m. local time on April 14. Despite noting that strengthening was not forecast, Tropical Depression Nine strengthened into a tropical storm at the next advisory and was named Oren. Oren made a quick landfall on the Gulp Mountain Peninsula, and the final advisory was issued. No deaths or damage were reported.

Hurricane Griel

Advisory archive

Tropical Depression Ten formed on June 10 far to the west of Torquay in very warm waters and low shear. Moving west over near-35°Celsius water, it quickly strengthened into a tropical storm. however, as Tropical Depression Eleven was determined to be a tropical storm earlier than Tropical Depression Ten, it was named Griel and not Nitschke. Griel continued to gain convection, and late on June 11, it strengthened into a hurricane. Continuing to move west in warm waters, it became a major hurricane the next day. Griel quickly became a strong Category 4 storm, and caused L£50 million damage on the uninhabited Veneratio area of VEN-01. It caused further damage of L£6 million in evacuations in Vassfforcia; in an accident during evacuations, 29 people were killed. On June 14, an aircraft reconnaisance flight found Griel to be a Category 5 hurricane, marking the first time in 6 years the Centre had warned on a hurricane of this magnitude. It then weakened slightly and shifted course to the west-southwest. Another L£390 million in damage has been reported to offshore buoys and unhinhabited land. It made landfall on June 15, causing another 11 deaths and at least L£210 million more in damage. An astounding L£13 billion in damage was reported.

Tropical Storm Nitschke

Advisory archive

The MSHPC first identified Tropical Depression Eleven southwest of Victory Union, PopularFreedom early on June 10. By late that night, it had gained enough convection to be designated a tropical depression, and early the next morning it was deemed to be a tropical storm. However, ti quickly became extratropical and advisories were discontinued.

Tropical Depression Twelve

Advisory archive

An area of distrubed weather formed very close to land near Atollville, West Kompa Ru. Moving erratically east/east-northeastwards, it was designated a tropical depression near Las Islas de Equitorial of East Kompa Ru early on June 11. After making landfall on Parque de Corracion, it started to dissipate. Three deaths were reported.

Tropical Storm Mirscqy (Gamma)

Advisory archive

A disturbed area of low pressure moved south off the Gulp Mountain Peninsula on June 12 and gained enough convection to be designated a tropical depression the same day. Later that day, it became Tropical Storm Mirscqy, but quickly became extratropical.

Tropical Storm Linas

Advisory archive

A persistent tropical low to the north of Spaamanian Plijous developed late on June 12 into a subtropical depression. Almost stationary, it gained tropical characteristics the next morning, becoming a fully-tropical depression. It then started to track southeastward, becoming a tropical storm that afternoon. It made landfall near Althos as a weak tropical storm, causing seven deaths.

Tropical Storm Amy (Delta)

Advisory archive

On the morning of June 14, a strong gale system, which had persisted for over 24 hours and had moved over Lox Land Island causing much wind damage, gained enough organisation. As it already had storm-force winds, it was designated Tropical Storm Amy, the first time under the new naming system that names from the old list had to be used. Tropical storm warnings were in effect immediately, but 24 hours after forming it mysteriously degenerated into an open trough.

Tropical Depression Sixteen

Advisory archive

On July 22, reconnaissance aircraft reported that a system with a closed circulation near the Pax Meridian northwest of Ineptia was organised enough to be designated a tropical depression. It degenerated into an open tropical wave the next day.

Tropical Storm Brent

Advisory archive

On July 28, a midget system formed east of PopularFreedom. Before numbered warnings could be initiated, the system crossed the coast. However, a QUIKScat pass shortly after showed a reformed centre off the coast, and it was organised enough to be considered a tropical depression. Due to its proximity to the coast, a tropical cyclone update was issued to initiate tropical storm warnings and watches. It was upgraded to a tropical storm at the next advisory, and named Brent. It made another landfall shortly after, causing L£500 million in damage, mainly from flooding. The low-level circulation soon decoupled from the convection and sped southeastward, being dragged in by a larger tropical disturbance 700 km east-southeast of Magna Carta.

Subtropical Storm Cassandra

Advisory archive

On the morning of July 30, an area of low pressure that had persisted near the former border between Liverpool England and Upper Biswald was deemed to have sufficient subtropical characteristics to be designated a subtropical cyclone. As an earlier Quikscat pass indicated the existence of winds greater than 40 knots, it was considered a subtropical storm, and named Cassandra. It quickly strengthened to hurricane strength, however, it failed to lose extratropical characteristics and therefore was not considered a hurricane (which must be tropical in nature). It became fully extratropical six hours later, without doing any reported damage.

Tropical Depression Nineteen

Advisory archive

On July 30, the tropical disturbance that had absorbed the remnant circulation of Tropical Depression Brent gained enough organisation to be classified a tropical cyclone, albeit a weak one. It struggled against poor environmental conditions and dissipated the next day.

Tropical Storm Douglas

Advisory archive

On September 20, the MSHPC spotted cyclonic turning with convection west of the Western Territories of Liverpool England. A reconnaissance plane confirmed the presence of a closed circulation, and therefore advisories were initiated on Subtropical Depression Twenty at 9 p.m. HPT. Despite weakening slightly, when buoy reports indicated a minimum central pressure of 1003 hPa and winds of 33 knots, it was upgraded to a subtropical storm. It gained full tropicality as it strengthened later that day. It made landfall on the morning of September 23 shortly before becoming extratropical.

Storm names

Official MSHPC list

Storms are named by nations within the Liverpool England Area of Responsibility; 16 nations submitted names to name cyclones with in 2140. In 2145, the names contributed by Aerigia, Upper Biswald and Vlavianos were struck from the list. The name contributed by Aerigia, "Bonita", had been used in 2140, and will be the only usage of the name for a tropical cyclone in The Heartland. Only storms of tropical storm strength get named; if the 13 names run out, the list reverts to the old pre-2140 naming scheme. Unused names are greyed out; the first one this season was named Veiru. Active storms are bolded.

Names are retired for strong negative connotations due to damage, deaths caused or political sensitivity. However, this season, Bonita, contributed by Aerigia, Huelwen, from Upper Biswald and Araes (Vlavianos) were retired due to either the nations leaving the region, or ceasing. If any of the remaining 13 pre-submitted names are retired by process, the nation is asked to submit a new name. If any of the other standard names are retired, a name from the backup list is used to replace the retired name. Names retired will be decided on in December 2145.

Unofficial LLIWO TCWC list

In March 2145, the MSHPC appointed the Lox Land Island Weather Observatory as a tropical cyclone warning centre for all cyclones within a 400-km radius of the island, and allowed it to warn on systems and name them as it saw fit, as long as the names did not clash with the official name list. The chosen names were from the Greek and Phoenician alphabets. This list will repeat from "Alpha" as soon as "Daleth" is used. Names are used sequentially. If there are more than 10 storms warned on by the TCWC, the storms would be named backwards, i.e. Storm #11 would be named "Ahpla", storm #12 "Ateb", storm #13 "Ammag", et cetera.
