The 2020 Sandific hurricane season is a current event in the annual cycle of tropical cyclone formation, in which tropical cyclones form in the Sandific Ocean. This season runs year-round, though most tropical cyclones typically develop between May and November. This is the first full season that the SHMC takes control of the basin.

Hurricane Cooper

Category 2 hurricane (SSHWS)
Faxai 2019-09-07 0310Z Cooper track 2020
DurationFebruary 11 – February 20
Peak intensity100 mph (155 km/h) (1-min)  973 mbar (hPa)

In early-February, the SHMC monitored an area of low pressure for signs of development. The area gathered convection and rapidly organized within 3 days. On February 11, the SHMC designated the storm as a tropical depression. Initially, it struggled to organize due to the waters cooling a bit and the wind shear increasing. But then late on February 13, it managed to pull through and became Tropical Storm Cooper early the next day. Once the wind shear was lessened way further, that made way for Cooper to intensify quicker, and early on February 16, it was upgraded into a hurricane.
