Re: Quietest Season Since 1997

All impressions that I have is that the African Dust Cycle was above normal levels of activity. I know we had one first this hurricane season, a recon. flight into the Cape Verdes...They were there to do a storm recon mission as part of a project to understand these waves as they exit Africa a little better. The other part concerned the interaction with the dust. Our local NBC-2 Meteorologist down in SW FL gave a pretty good breakdown of how the Dust and El Nino affected the Hurricane Season. Here's a link to his video (Hit "click for video") and some additional text about Hurricane Season '06.
