2004. I'm still convinced seeing the Red Sox win the World Series was worth being hit by two hurricanes, but now that I've seen them win twice that's a trade-off I wouldn't make again!

It is quite, but that doesn't mean a darn thing......

All Floridians remember very well what 2004 brought us.......

South Floridians also remember the 1st named storm only happening in August 1992... Andrew...

Surprisingly both those years were El Nino years... the same as this year.....

Yeah, its quite, but I mean its early July, you may get a few waves coming off Africa and some non-tropical areas of low pressure, some which may turn into something but most likely just disapate.

Here was a piece of the orignal article:


Tropical discussion from Rob Lightbown at Crown Weather

Discussion
We have now officially ended June with no named storms. This is the first time that this has happened since 2004.

The tropical Atlantic remains quiet this morning with no areas of immediate concern. There are a couple of tropical waves that have emerged off of the coast of Africa. Both disturbances will be monitored, however, development seems unlikely, due to slightly below normal sea surface temperatures in the eastern Atlantic and highly unfavorable wind shear conditions west of 30 West Longitude.

Suface analysis does show a frontal system tracking off of the Mid-Atlantic coast. Satellite imagery shows some shower and isolated thunderstorm activity to the north of the Bahamas. This is in association with a dying front in the area. No development is expected in this area due to unfavorable wind shear conditions, however, some of the computer forecast guidance is showing some sort of low pressure system being left behind off of the US Southeast coast later next week. A closer examination of the upper-level wind charts show that this low pressure system would be more than likely cold cored and highly sheared. In addition, more than likely, it would be booted out into the Atlantic by the approaching upper-level trough of low pressure.

So, all-in-all, things are quiet in the tropical Atlantic and no development is expected for at least the next few days and most likely right through the Fourth of July Weeekend.

2004 I got hit 3 time in six weeks. None in June just let some folks drop their guard.....and that being said it had been over 40 years since we had one come close enough to take our power down....Stats are worthless for anything but history.

SouthAfrica,

Great point, strangely, 92 was also the same year the N.E. Pacific hurricane zone recorded the most storms in a single season..And, though i'll have to check this one out to be sure, i think the name cycle for our regions hurricane names is the same this year as in 92..or 97..and yes, definitely appears like El Nino is making a return..gonna be watching all of this closely..

Right now, there is an area off of S.W. Mexico being watched..

Texas is bone dry along the south coastal area. They actually need a hurricane or two to beat the drought. And last years drought down south was brought on by lack of hurricane activity the last two years.
