• NOAA Predicts Near-Normal Or Below-Normal 2014 Atlantic Hurricane Season


“The outlook calls for a 50 percent chance of a below-normal season, a 40 percent chance of a near-normal season, and only a 10 percent chance of an above-normal season.

”For the six-month hurricane season, which begins June 1, NOAA predicts a 70 percent likelihood of 8 to 13 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 3 to 6 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 1 to 2 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher).”

Wonder if this forecast will be any better than NOAA's daily wind forecasts...which usually are off by about 10 kts.
