Re: The 2004 Hurricane Season Starts Today

Probably a bit off topic, but I was looking at information about the possible El Nino development later this year, and I came across something interesting. Apparently, the SSTs off the coast of South Africa for April are bearing a reasonably strong similarity to those of April 1982. The 1982-83 El Nino was pretty bad, as there were only 5 named storms in '82 and 4 in '83. Of course it's too early to form any definite predictions, but it makes you wonder - will much be going on in 2005?
