  •  2005 had hurricanes in Atlantic & ePacific (4+ / 0-)

    They took turns for a way above normal year.

    Because the NAO was strongly positive this winter

    The tropical and subtropical north Atlantic lost a lot of heat. That's why I'm not expecting a really bad hurricane season after the rapid start.

    When the PDO goes cold phase as it has recently done, El Ninos are weakened because the warm water bleeds off the equator more quickly, the EPac high pressure maintains itself a higher pressure and thus the El Nino feedback loop is dampened.

    look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.
