2009 hurricane forecast

If and how global warming influences hurricane frequency or intensity is still a matter of genuine scientific debate. In recent years, scientists have at least identified several factors — from the extent of rainfall in Africa to the presence or absence of El Nino conditions in the Pacific — that help them predict the intensity of a hurricane season ahead of time. Here’s what the two most prominent forecasters have to say:

The federal government has predicted a “near normal” hurricane season for the Atlantic, with a 25% chance of above-normal outbreaks and 25% chance of below-normal outbreaks — though overall, forecasters expressed a greater degree of uncertainty this year than they have in past years. The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration’s predicts a 70% chance of:

  • Named storms: 9-14
  • Hurricanes: 4-7
  • Major hurricanes: 1-3

That was a lot of help. 🙂
