upcoming pattern change......
      #89568 - Thu Sep 16 2010 06:53 PM

Could somebody give me a little more info on the pattern change I have been hearing about. After Igor exits the picture I have been hearing the pattern will change and we may more developement closer to home in the caribbean and or Gulf. Also the GFS may be on to a possible hurricane in the Gulf. Is this true?

It's simply climatological that storms are more likely to form in the Western Atlantic, Caribbean Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico as the season gets into late September through November.

That is correct. As we move into the mid to later hurricane season the Eastern Atlantic becomes a lesser factor and attention focuses on the Western Altantic, Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean.
