   Above normal 2013 Atlantic and Caribbean Hurricane Season

Glenroy Brown, April 10, 2013

The latest information coming out of the Colorado State University is that the Atlantic hurricane season is forecast to be well above average activity for the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. Professor William Grey and his team continue to look at uncertainty about ENSO (El Niño/La Niña-Southern Oscillation) and the maintenance of anomalously warm

Tropical Atlantic SST (sea surface temperature) conditions.


Information obtained over the past month indicates that the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season will have significantly more activity than the average season. They estimate that 2013 will have about 9 hurricanes, 18 named storms of which 4will become major (Category 3-5) hurricanes.


They are expecting the current near-neutral phase of the ENSO conditions to continue during the heart of the hurricane season.

This overall conditions remain conducive for a very active hurricane Season.
