Subtropical Storm Bryon was the second named storm of the 2016 Atlantic hurricane season. It formed from the remants of a nor'easter and treked through the central Atlantic Ocean.

Storm history

Subtropical Storm Bryon's orginis came from a large, comma shaped nor'easter that existed from July 9 to July 13. Although it was very unusual to see a nor'easter during the month of July, the nor'easter slowly began to decline and dissipate during July 13. Anyhow on the very tip of the comma shaped nor'easter, a cluster of severe scattered thunderstroms bagan to wear off from the system and began to merge into a non-tropical low, but that had rich amounts of convection.

Two days later, it formed a low-level closed circulation with organized activity but a lack of a warm core, the National Hurricane Center didn't bother a first to monitor the storm. As it grew, on July 20, it began to form a small eyewall until then did the National Hurricane Center began to show interest. Still as a cold-cored subtropical cyclone, it already had tropical storm force winds so the National Hurricane Center upgraded the cyclone to Subtropical Storm Bryon.

Until July 22, Subtropical Storm Bryon remained fairly healthy until it reached an area of extremely high wind shear, east of Bermuda. Bryon quickly became shreaded and disorganzied until on the next day, Bryon degenerated into an extratropical low while the National Hurricane Center issued its last advisory.


Although Bryon stayed far away from any landmasses, it did come across a small cargo ship when Bryon was at its full strength. There some loss of cargo and goods were accidentally tossed into the ocean as rip currents slashed the boat. Of the nine crewmembers that were desginated to trek across the sea, four were killed when three were accidentally thrown overboard due to the heavy pounding of the waves while one was killed by high-voltage electric from the ship's interior. The remaining five passengers, survived to tell the tale when reaching Bermuda.


Besides from the losses of several amounts of cargo from a small transatlantic ship along with its 4 crew members, the name Bryon wasn't retired since it had affected no landmasses or caused any major property damages.
