    Well it seems that's 2 organisations that have gone for an active atlantic hurricane season, according to this bbc news article BBC Website. Will be interesting to see what the NOAA suggests shortly. With La Nina kicking in fairly quickly, it should allow for a much more active season compared to last year, but will it be anything like the record season of 2005?????

    What's everyones thoughts on this years hurricane season?

    In theory it should be a more active season this time. However, all the forecasts for last year's hurricane season (including NOAA) were wrong as they were talking about above average tropical activity and as we all know it was a very quiet one instead.

    Indeed. Just shows that there's a long way to go before they can predict these things with any accuracy. Over here you'd think that people had forgotten last year's awful forecasts. The figures produced yesterday are still being treated as though they are gospel.

    Of course, The Weather Channel went for an above average February and I don't hear them mentioning that very often...

    Evening all,

    have been reading this article and as far as a few organisations are concerned this could be a very active season? and have increased the number of expected Hurricanes twice now as all the indicators = Sea Temps off the African coast and the probability of a small La Niña the normal daughter of a El Niño year? are pointing toward a very lively season, time will tell.
