I am certainly an amateur when it comes to hurricanes, but I've heard a few people here mention that hurricanes can "sap" the strength of the warm ocean water they cross by causing an upwelling of deeper, cooler water. Is there any way that a series of strong storms/hurricanes early in the season moving across the same general Cape Verde track could hinder the development of later storms? Or is the overall effect on the ocean not this prominent?
This may be somewhat of an ignorant question, but just trying to understand what happens in the water after a particular storm moves on.
Great site, by the way. The knowledge here really is incredible.
