Weather forecasters predict increased storms and hurricanes this season due to the disappearance of El Nino
Weather forecasters predict increased storms and hurricanes this season due to the disappearance of El Nino. The new prediction is for an above normal hurricane season this year.
Ag Senior Met Officer Marshall Alexander says the National Oceanic & Atmospheric (NOA) administration is now saying that there is expected to be a 45% chance of an above normal season, previously it was a 30% season.
Marshall says the reason for that prediction is that analysis has suggested that El Nino is no longer present to provide wind shear over the Atlantic that would impede the formation of tropical cyclones.
