Slowest Start To A Hurricane Season On Record
Real Science ^ | 8/24/2013 | Unknown

Posted on 08/25/2013 9:38:30 AM PDT by rktman

Obama says that hurricanes are getting worse, based on some research done at the Choom Climatological Institute.

As we approach the end of August, there have been no Atlantic hurricanes. By this date in the year 1886, there had already been seven hurricanes – including three major hurricanes, one of which wiped the city of Indianola, Texas off the map.

“I know. I know” says little Al waving his hand. “Hurricanes are less frequent and not as powerful due to GLOBAL WARMING.

Well, if it’s a good thing, you won’t see the AGW crowd make note of it

But CO2 has now been classified by the EPA as a pollutant? What do we do now? Inhale?

Good observation. I was just thinking about this the other day, no ‘canes this year.

I guess that is a good thing. But if we are really heading for a Little Ice Age like some people say, it might be a leading indicator.

Just my $.02

The hurricane season is supposed to be entering its peak period now, but things are very quiet. If we get to October with it still being quiet, that would be an indication that the oceans are not as warm as in previous years, regardless of official reports.

U.S. government trims 2013 Atlantic hurricane season forecast
http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/08/08/us-usa-weather-hurricanes-idUSBRE9770WW20130808
Published 8AUG2013

(excerpt)
The 2013 Atlantic hurricane season is still on track to be “above normal” but “extreme levels of activity” are less likely, the top U.S. government climate agency said on Thursday.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said the six-month season, which began on June 1 and will soon enter its peak, could still be “very active” and spawn 13 to 19 named storms, six to nine of which were expected to become hurricanes.

In an earlier pre-season forecast, issued in May, NOAA had predicted up to 20 named storms and said as many as 11 of them could become hurricanes. At that time it warned that the hurricane season could be “extremely active.”

In its May forecast, NOAA predicted as many as six major hurricanes at Category 3 or above. It trimmed that total to no more than five in its latest forecast.

Could mean that, or it could mean that wind patterens in the Atlantic are not favorable for the formation of tropical storms.

Saharan dry air and dust have played a large role in suppressing storm formation.

It would be interesting to plot that chart against solar/sunspot cycles. Probably somebody somewhere has already done that.

(excerpt)
Posted by: Dr. Jeff Masters, 2:36 PM GMT on May 13, 2010

I’m in Tucson for the American Meteorological Society’s 29th Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology. This is the premier scientific conference on hurricanes, and is held only once every two years, so pretty much all of the world’s greatest hurricane experts are here. One of the more intriguing posters presented at Tuesday’s poster session was titled, Evidence linking solar variability with USA hurricanes, by Robert Hodges and Jim Elsner of Florida State University. They showed that the probability of three or more hurricanes hitting the U.S. during a hurricane season with warmer than average sea surface temperatures increases dramatically during minima in the 11-year sunspot cycle.

Dust, another word for ‘condensation nuclei,’ plays a large part in the formation of clouds. Less hot air means less dust in the air which means less cloud formation.

I don’t see this as bad news since I live near the Atlantic coast. Aside from how this may affect me, there are various reasons for this anomoly beginning with cooler temps in the Atlantic Ocean, a higher latitude high pressure system in the Atlantic, lack of sun spots, dry air over the Atlantic, Saharan dust, a year where seasons seem a bit late in arriving among others.

If it continues this way, I will be very happy but please note that in 92, Hurrican Andrew, first of the season, did not land in Miami till Aug 24th.

I would say my thanks QUIETLY, and mozy on!

August 29th comes soon, and I sure do NOT want another helping of that pie!!!!

It’s sad enough with the visionmakers’ maps of the new/old great waterway through middle America, with my spot, under water.

I mean, when Hurricane Geoge came through here, I was in the VA Recovery Care building. AFTER the building was erected, they made a raised section on the middle of the horseshoe. Getting up in the night, to go ‘you know where’, as my foot came to the floor, there was an inch of standing water! I was in an electrified bed, so “what words sprangeth forth”!!

At home, I’m above the road, on the crest of the hill, upstairs. Gotta be a whole lot of water b efore i begin to fret!
