The Tiger's Eye: More Predictions...

More Predictions...

Hmmmmm....Perhaps I shouldn't go out on a limb on this one. I mean after all, EVERYBODY says that Human Induced Global Warming is going to cause all sorts of nastiness including something like 5 or 6 serious Hurricanes this season.

(as an aside, lets check those same people's track record. For 2006 "Klotzbach's team issued its first extended-range forecast for the 2006 season, predicting a well above-average season (17 named storms, 9 hurricanes, 5 of Category 3 or higher)."
As I recall, last year was a real doozie, something like ZERO landfalls in the Continental US.
Wow, I'm impressed.

OK, Hurricane season runs from June 1 thru November 30. As of July 7 we have had exactly 2 tropical depressions in the Atlantic. Thats 20% of the season.

Now, the Atlantic is a pretty big place so even though the Weather Channel feed shows that there isn't anything in Florida or even the Caribbean perhaps there is something big lurking out there.
Lets Check NOAA, surely they will have something worth worrying about somewhere out in the mid-Atlantic ready to swoop into our neck of the woods. - thats their webpage dedicated to Hurricanes.

What ?!?! "There are no tropical cyclones at this time"

Thats right folks, NOTHING, NADA, ZIP, ZILCH. Hmmmmm...

I am predicting that this season will be pretty much like most. A few storms, maybe a bad one here or there but nothing particularly awful or END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT!!! (Emphasis ALGORE Vs. II.b)
