Hurricane long range projection

Long range weather forecasters at NOAA's Climate Prediction Center say the 2011 hurricane season could be more active than normal. Based on current and predicted long-range weather patterns, hurricane forecasters says 12-18 named storms could develop in the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea or Gulf of Mexico this season.

Yeah. Maybe some year they will be right.
Weathermen, what other job can you have, be wrong 70% of the time and not get fired?

While I agree with your sentiment regarding weathermen the NOAA hurricane outlook actually operates on 70% likelihood. You can read the estimate here.

There are also only two more shopping days till National Hurricane Preparedness Week (no kidding, its May 22-8) so make sure to do your gift shopping.

On a related note, did you know there are Hurricane Evacuation Route signs even north of Dallas?

Hmm, gifts for hurricane preparedness week. I guess maybe some bottled water or sterno cans would be a good choice? LOL

I'm surprised Walmart doesn't have a whole section dedicated to this.

Gifts? I need a kayak.
I canoed on a section of Memorial drive after Ike, and actually sailed (a small Sunfish) on I10 after TS Allison. If you shop at REI I bet kayaks are on sale

Re: Hurricane long range projection

Not like Texas gets hit by THAT many hurricanes compared to us (Louisiana) and the rest of the gulf coast.

the only reason I give this forecast a second thought this year is because of how abnormal the weather has been, it could be the one year we really do see that many named storms.

You are more than welcome to have all of them.

Except you can let us have a bit of the rain from any hurricanes you get
