Re: El NiƱo Arrives; Expected to Persist through Winter 2009-10


too bad, another boring year. Like they say it only takes one to mess up your day. Its been really unusual in the past 3 years we, in Florida, have only had 1 system, which did very minimal damage? If this is global warming, doesnt seem really bad?

I certainly hope for a quiet year. I hate busy years, 2004 and 2005 were some of the worst. The likelihood of a slower Atlantic season is higher because of the effect of ENSO on the shear out here, which gives storms less of a chance to form. That's really it.

Storms still can form however. And there is nothing unusal about no damaging storms, 2004-2005 were oddities.
