Meteorological History

Hurricane Michelangelo began as a strong tropical wave located in the Caribbean on July 21, 2139. Then on July 23, 2139, a tropical depression formed southwest of Haiti and it was designated as Tropical Depression 13L. 13L would further strengthen to a tropical storm and be named "Michelangelo" with winds of 40 mph and a minimum pressure of 1002 millibars. The tropical storm turned due north hitting Haiti with winds of 50 mph and a central pressure of 1000 millibars. The mountainous terrain disrupted the center of circulation and was downgraded to a tropical depression before exiting into the western Atlantic. Upon entering the western Atlantic it quickly restrengthened due to 94°F sea surface temperatures and a very favorable environment with very little wind shear and dry air. Michelangelo explosively intensified to a category five hurricane while nearing the Bahamas and the east coast of Florida packing winds of 200 mph and a central pressure of 867 millibars. The hurricane then struck Florida at peak intensity with winds of 240 mph and a minimum central pressure of 811 millibars. It rapidly weakened as it went inland quickly becoming extratropical over South Carolina, the remnant extratropical system persisted for a week before dissipating near the United Kingdom.
