Re: Quietest Season Since 1997

Yeah, that 10th one was really a no-brainer, as far as I was concerned - I was all but startled that they did not give it a name at the time, but then again, it was handled well under the HSF... simply overlooked by the media (other than TWC, as far as I know) as a likely candidate.

Despite all the talk of stable air, dry air, anomalous SAL, etc., your "so the season went 1 in june, 2 in july, 3 in august, 4 in september, and then nothing." observation fits in all too well with the budding El Nino perhaps playing the largest role of all in the season ending up well-below forecasts.
