EXTENDED RANGE FORECAST OF ATLANTIC SEASONAL HURRICANE
According to professor William Gray of the Colorado State University, we anticipate that the 2014 Atlantic basin hurricane season will have below-average activity compared with the 1981-2010 climatology. It appears quite likely that an El Niño of at least moderate strength will develop this summer and fall. In addition, the tropical Atlantic has anomalously cooled over the past few months. We anticipate a below-average probability for major hurricanes making landfall along the United States coastline and in the Caribbean. Despite the quiet forecast, coastal residents are reminded that it only takes one hurricane making landfall to make it an active season for them. They are reminded to prepare the same for every season, regardless of how much or how little activity is predicted.
The forecast calls for 9 named storms, 35 named storm days, 3 hurricanes, 12 hurricane days, 1 major hurricane and 2 major hurricane days.
