The latest Hurricane Forecast

The latest Hurricane Forecast (released Wed 2 Jun 2010), from the Gray/Klotzbach Team, calls for a “very active” season and has now been increased to 18 named Storms (Tropical Storm strength or greater), with 10 of those becoming Hurricanes and five of those major Hurricanes (Category 3 or higher on the Saffir-Simpson scale, with top sustained winds of at least 111 mph).

This increase in the number of forecast storms is due to rapidly diminishing El Nino effect and much higher than normal Atlantic Sea Surface Temperatures.

Additionally, the Gray/Klotzbach Team estimated a probability of 65% for at least one major hurricane to travel through the Caribbean – the norm to date has been 42%.

Please bear in mind that this information comprises a Forecast (which is by no means a precise science)  – it only takes one major storm, regardless of whether the Season is labeled “very active” or “quiet”, to have the potential to severely disrupt your businesses and your lives.”
