HURRICANE SEASON 2014
We are about a month away from the official start of the new hurricane season, soon we need to start thinking about our plans in case a hurricane strikes your area no matter if the season is forecast to be below normal. It only takes 1 storm to do the damage and make it be a destructive season.
For example: 1992 Hurricane Andrew
The Eastern Pacific season starts sooner, on May 15. Just 19 days from today.
This is the 2nd update of the scorecard,
Im happy to have listed 43 members of the underground community running forecasts for this upcoming Atlantic Hurricane season.
Remember you can join at any time if you'd like. The tally will be terminated on July 1st.
You can also make changes in your forecast numbers just let me know.
CURRENT WU COMMUNITY FORECAST:
11 Named Storms (11.11)
5 Hurricanes (4.56)
2 Major Hurricanes (1.72)
>> Now you can see what the overall season forecast appears to be as I highlighted with red, grey and blue all our predictions. The Average season is 12, 5-6, 3. Anything higher than that is above and lower is below.
