If you read our earlier blog where it was determine that the EL Nino that has been in a steady and strengthening phase has stopped and changed direction. This means the Kryptonite that affects how many tropical storms/Hurricanes form across the Atlantic Basin is no longer there. We may enter a period where the remainder of the coming season (through the end of November) very well could indicate the second (and normally more active) half could bring near to slightly above normal tropical activity...

The latest data from the Climate Prediction Center indicates the EL Nino that was building during the later part of the winter and the spring, has for the most part, stopped building, stabilized and fallen from last months values.  In other words, the above normal values we have had in the previous months have reversed with values near/at normal levels.  What does this mean for the remainder of the Hurricane Season? Well, as we are nearing the seasonal peak of the season (the peak occurs during...

Finally, some good news about the Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico. BP has been able to hook up a pipe to suck up some of the oil that has been spilling out for the last month or so. This oil should be heading up to waiting tankes. Hopefully this will be beginning to the end to one of the most devastating Oil Spills in our nations history. It already has the change to be the worlds biggest. Hopefully this development will prevent that from happening. Unfortunately, all the news may not be good...

I know, I know. There's over 2 feet of snow across the Mid Atlantic region after back to back blizzards and there is talk about the upcoming Hurricane Season already. Well, this is the time of the year when those behind long range Hurricane model prediction put out their initial estimate for the coming season. So far, it looks like this coming year will be a slightly above average season with 15 total Tropical Storms/Hurricanes. The current El Nino pattern should begin to weaken or be in a weake...
