West Texas & Southeast New Mexico Weather Trivia

October 22 Weather Trivia

On this day in 1998, Mitch was christened as the 13th named tropical storm of the 1998 Atlantic Hurricane season. 13 would indeed be an unlucky number for many Central American countries as Mitch would become the fourth strongest Atlantic Hurricane on record over the extremely warm waters of the western Caribbean. Mitch would eventually be one of the biggest natural disasters ever in the Western Hemisphere.
