2014 Hurricane Season Prediction
NOAA/NHC ^ | May 23,2014 | noaa/nhc

Posted on 05/22/2014 8:31:20 AM PDT by NautiNurse

Colorado State University researchers have forecast nine named storms in 2014, with just three expected to become hurricanes and one major storm. El Nino development is anticipated to contribute to a less active Atlantic tropical storm season.

Forecasters got it wrong last year when they predicted an unusually busy hurricane season. There were just 13 named storms and two Category One hurricanes.

The NHC has updated and revised several of their tracking and prediction products. The intensity probability table has been retired. The forecast cone (affectionately known as the cone of death or destruction) will be smaller. A new potential storm surge flooding map, and enhanced tropical weather outlook graphics are available. 2014 NHC Product Updates

Hurricane Preparedness Week is May 25-May 31.
Whether you are a seasoned tropical storm veteran or a recent transplant to Hurricane Alley, some helpful tips:

Hopefully our Catastrophic Global Climate Change will generate another quiet season this year.

Right now in TX and the SW we’re watching 92E in the East Pacific... EPAC has been supplying all our moisture for over a year. Even if it won’t rain, the cloud cover from the systems retard evaporation of what surface moisture we DO have.

Here's my accurate prediction: there may be a dozen hurricanes this season, or there may not be a dozen hurricanes this season.

You're welcome.

“Forecasters got it wrong last year “

I think they got it wrong every year for the last 15. They consistently had to downgrade multiple times a year due to their ‘climate change causes more storms’ forecasting.

I’m changing landfall to Corpus Christi.. based on the blue Norther they got Jan23-24. It’s a feedback theory I’m working on.

...probably something similar to what Red Hampshire towns do with their sky-high property taxes and the sky-high taxes charged when registering a car in Red Hampshire.

If there’s more storms than predicted - it’s global warming. If there are less - it’s global warming.

JIMMY CASTOR BUNCH

The Bertha Butt Boogie

Bum bum bumadum...

The party was jumping
When Bertha got off of her stump
The whistles were blowing
And everybody did the bump

But all the time Bertha
Had been working on a goodie
Now folks call it the
Bertha Butt Boogie

When Bertha Butt did her goodie
She started the Bertha Butt Boogie
No question

Bum bum bumadum...

When Bertha got moving
Her hips were humming in the wind
The ground started shaking
No grass grew where she’d been

The music was popping
The crowd had formed a ring
Her sisters yelled, boogie, Bertha
Do your thing

Oh, for your information
Bertha had three sisters
Betty Butt, Bella Butt
And Bathsheba Butt

When Bertha Butt did her goodie
She started the Bertha Butt Boogie
I said no question

Bum bum bumadum...

Hey Leroy, get away from that woman
That boy’ll never learn
Uh oh, here comes the troglodyte
Come here, sock it to me

Bertha stood back and yelled
Betty, Bella, Bathsheba
And the Butt sisters backed her up
When she yelled, I need you

The troglodyte, Leroy, Luther
And the Butt sisters all knew
That the Bertha Butt Boogie
Was now the thing to do

When Bertha Butt did her goodie
She started the Bertha Butt Boogie
No question

Bum bum bumadum...

I’ll sock it to you, daddy
Me like, me like
Come here, woman, woman

Come on
I’m calling you ma’am
Yeah, the boogie
