Good evening. If you have not already done so, I recommend reading over my previous blog entry, which contains my complete seasonal forecast for the 2014 North Atlantic Hurricane Season. Tonight, however, I'm shifting gears to look at a completely different part of the world, the southeast Pacific Ocean. There, Tropical Storm Ita is intensifying tonight. Ita has already left significant devastation in the Solomon Islands, where river flooding from heavy rains fr...

With March nearly behind us, and the seemingly endless winter of 2013-2014 slowly releasing its grip on the country, we are now heading deeper into spring and that means closer to another Atlantic hurricane season. With the official start of the season now just two months away, I think it is time for me to release my thoughts on how the 2014 season will go.

It's been a busy few weeks for me, between working through the college process and preparing for midterm exams (the last of which I took today), so I haven't had much time for blogging lately.

Good evening. It's been a while since my last blog, with little Atlantic tropical activity to blog about. Now that hurricane season is basically over, my focus is turning to the winter storm season. I plan to try to keep my blog updated with potential storm threats (mostly Nor'easters) for the Northeast, especially focusing on Southern New England. It looks like our first potential storm is coming this week. It's a pretty typical Nor'easter setup, as a storm sy...

It has been months since I posted a blog, but today I am ending this lengthy stretch of no blogs to mark the 75th anniversary of the Great New England Hurricane of 1938, commonly referred to as the "Long Island Express" due to the rapid forward motion, estimated to be about 60mph, the system achieved before its landfall on Long Island on September 21, 1938. To this day, the 1938 hurricane remains the benchmark to which all New England hurricanes are measured. None...
