Forecast calling for above average hurricane season
By Bryan Hale
Thu, 08 Aug 2013 20:38:37 GMT — The National Hurricane Center is still calling for an aggressive hurricane season despite the poor showing so far this year. The NHC dropped it's number spread by just a tad saying the Atlantic/Gulf region has a 70% chance for an aggressive hurricane season. NHC meteorologists are pointing to improved atmospheric and oceanic conditions to justify their forecast. My Take:This is the height of the hurricane season so the smart money is on more storms between now and November, the odds favor it. The global influence of El Nino and La Nina remains in a neutral state. The improved conditions the Hurricane Center is talking about will really need to unfold quickly if the numbers are going to come close to the official forecast.
