We still have four months to go, but there's been almost no tropical activity so far.

Hurricane Andrew Cat 5 hurricane was the first storm of the 1992 hurricane season and didn't hit till August 24th. So we are no where out of the woods this season yet.

You forget that June and July are pretty quiet months for tropical activity in the Atlantic hurricane basin. Peak activity is in the months of August and September, and the tropics are showing signs of slowly "waking" up.

While I don't wish a hurricane landfall on anyone, it's foolish to put your guard down after a slow start to the hurricane season.

the fact there hasn't been even one named storm so far i think portends no hurricanes this season. i still think we've entered a "quiet period".

well, the reason I posted this thread is because I heard today that meteorologists have downgraded their predictions for the rest of the hurricane season. They said it would be a quiet season because of el nino.

It will be a quiter than usual season due to El Nino.

HOWEVER.....

Andrew (1st named storm of the '92 Atlantic season) hit South Florida at the end of August during a mild El Nino year.
Betsy (2nd named storm of the '65 Atlantic season) hit Southern Florida at the begining of September during an El Nino year.

All it takes is 1 bad storm to hit land somewhere for them to have a BAD hurricane season during a supposed El Nino year.

Other notable storms during an El Nino year.... '91 Bob; '97 Danny; '02 Lili.

I would like to thank thank Max Mayfield for some of this information......

So don't take no named storms in the 1st week of August as what the season is going to be like.......

Yeah I asked a local meteorologist about this and he explained to me that this was cause of the el-nino pattern that we are having, he did explain to me that Andrew came durning that pattern and before hand there were no major hurricanes that year.
