Post by sambucol » Tue May 19, 2020 10:37 pm

Opinion of this coming hurricane season? Active or not so? Opinions on most likely parts of the Gulf Coast as target areas?

Very active, IMO. Neutral ENSO likely (if not teetering on La Niña conditions.....SST’s through the roof)
Regarding targets....impossible to peg down at this point.

I’ve been meaning to post an email from a local met, Nathan Moore, but it had images and I don’t know how to include them
with our size restrictions. But the bottom line was a very busy season, potentially a hyperactive season, and 2005 was one of his analogue years. And the entire Texas coast was in his “red” zone.

Multiple models now are picking up on “something.”
Exact location and strength matters not....fact is that the Gulf/BOC/NW Caribbean bears watching over the next couple weeks.
