If you didn't know already, the Hurricane season has already started! The hurricane season officially started for the Atlantic on June 1st three weeks ago (5/15 for the Pacific) and will last until November 30th. For the Atlantic though there hasn't really been much to remind us of that as there hasn't been a single storm that formed thus far. Three in the Pacific however and they were record breaking:
May 22nd-29th there was a category 4 hurricane named Amanda with , 155 MPH winds, the strongest May tropical storm in the Pacific. June 2nd-4th there was Tropical Storm Boris, no big deal and didn't stick around for long. And finally June 6-June 15 there was yet another category 4 hurricane, this one named Christina and had 150 MPH winds making it the earliest second major hurricane on record.
Currently though everything is calm, with nothing brewing in the Atlantic and only one small area of disturbance in the Pacific, and even that has only a 10% chance of forming in to a hurricane.
For the Atlantic though, El Nino should be lowering the amount of storms forming for the Atlantic. On average we have 12 named storms a year, with 6 of them hurricanes and 3 of them major hurricanes, and it seems like there will be slightly below average for this time of year.
These are storms that form, not make landfall. we'll just have to wait and see how this season pans out.
