As promised and long wait for... Im thrilled to make the dedication to the 15 winners of my hurricane scorecard where 142 people participated.

Special present for Valentine's Day... can't be better

"Thank you all for taking the time to share your predictions and for the competition, last year was a great year for many of us even if the hurricane season was not what we expected. Congratulations to the winners and I invite all the participants and those "strangers" to try one more time this new year.
It was a pleasure for me to have served you on something... I'm happy to have contributed with my grain of sand to wunderground.com in such way.
Thank you and again, congratulations!"

I am now Washi...ain't believing that forecast for snow. Won't have a repeat of last year of getting 1/2" of snow March 1.

Um ok... forecasts now have nothing for you anyway

Af far as the Pacific in 2014

Also the reincarnation of Tropical Storm Alma, which devastated Costa Rica and Nicaragua... a very unusual event for Costa Rica to be hit from a Pacific storm.



Amanda will be the one to have in 2014

TSR issued their early forecast for 14 storms, 6 hurricanes and 3 majors.

Too early to say but for this season Im placing myself in the chart for a near average 2014 season forecast... still unsure about the exact numbers.. too early to tell

This upcoming hurricane season will be the reincarnation of 2008

Hurricane Dolly
Major Hurricane Bertha - Record Long-lived, also very early CV MH
Major Hurricane Ike - Third most expensive storm ever
Major Hurricane Gustav - New Orleans became a ghost town



Gustav, Ike and Paloma were retired in early 2009... This year we will see new names:

Gonzalo - Spanish (maybe English to) Male name
Isaias - The scary "I" storm... this time is the Spanish Biblical name. I hope it won't be as bad as Ike
Paulette - French female name

Hey P... I did't expect this low to become anything as systems like this use to be short lived not meeting the tropical cyclone criteria very well.

I was more worried about TD-8 really. But that one did't make it.

We all saw it, knew it, and discussed it back then. It's official now:



The National Hurricane Center (NHC) announced last week that the hurricane season of 2013 had one more storm that should have been named--a short-lived low that developed south of the Azores during early December, which became a subtropical storm on December 5. "Should-Have-Been-Named-Subtropical-Storm-Nestor" reached top sustained winds of 45 mph. The storm formed over unusually cool waters of 22°C (72°F), and brought sustained 10-minute winds of 37 mph with a gust to 54 mph near 00 UTC December 7 to Santa Maria in the southeastern Azores


===========

I still don't know why they never upgraded the one NE of the islands in I think it was May or early June. Was clearly a tropical storm for 12 hours minimum.

this new graphic style is completely different than all the others I have been working on in the past... I have put lots of attention in the banner on which I spent lots of time working on. Now I designed a simpler one focusing primarily in the information of the map. Making the banner of the graphic smaller in overall size allowing more room for the map itself. I think it's a good idea.

I'll be using this format until I change my mind later on

Your trees are buried? That's a bit odd. Or you have tons of snow, one of the two.
those are the only ones to see... backwards, gardens, sidewalks, fields, etc all buried.
impossible for signs of spring with this snow and col temps

Edit.. I said mostly everything is buried.
