I have not seen any discussion of this yet but I have been watching the global water temperatures and the temperatures off of Ecuador and Peru are
cooler than average and appear to be dropping, this usually means a "La Nina" pattern is developing, the opposite of El Nino where those
temperatures are above average. This pattern usually means little westarly flow in the Atlantic tropical waters hence a more favorable pattern for
tropical development, also the water temps along the Atlantic's ITCZ are above average which will aide tropical development if the pattern persists
or stregthens. On a side note El Nino years essentially cut off the hurricane season in the Atlantic because the upper level westerlies tend to dip
much further south than normal, shearing apart any possible cyclone development. weather.unisys.com...
from the bits and pieces of info gathered from the National Hurricane Center, I believe the experts would be in agreement with you Jrod, it seems to
be shaping up for an active season, I can only hope that Florida doesnt bare the brunt of multiple cat 3's or higher.
