Default Hurricane Season to Top Them All?

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has issued its 2010 hurricane season [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]forecast[/color][/color]
, predicting one of the strongest seasons on record

Think-Tank Says Trained Chimp Can Predict Hurricanes Better Than NOAA


“NOAA’s May outlooks have been wrong three out of the last four years – or 75% of the time,” said David Ridenour, vice president of The National Center for Public Policy Research. “We think our chimp can do better. He hasn’t been wrong so far. Of course, this is his very first hurricane season forecast.”

A couple good Cat 4 blows should be able to put oil from the Yucatan to Cuba and everything in between. I can see it now..............just about the time the intercept well is at the point of shutting off the undersea gusher, they'll have to pull off due to a big storm hitting.

I know...........I'm sounding pessimistic but hey, I live in Michigan. What do you expect. Snow 6 months of the year, cold, ice, summer is full of bugs, Governor Granholm, two government owned loser car companies.......sheesh. It's a wonder we don't all just move out.

Minorities are going to be upset. These names are not "ethnic" enough.

Last year they said oh this was the year for the big one. Now its this year. they don't have a clue. One year its " el ninio" this year its no "el ninio" make up your mind.

Does anyone from the Stuart area no the last hurrican to hit before Francis and jeane? I would be curious to know. Look at Fort lauderedale when was the last time FLL to a direct hit? I sure don't remember.

Does Sheila Jackson Lee need to whoop some ass again?

Do devastating hurricanes need help from affirmative action?
A member of Congress apparently thinks so, and is demanding the storms be given names that sound "black."

The congressional newspaper the Hill reported this week that Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, feels that the current names are too "lily white," and is seeking to have better representation for names reflecting African-Americans and other ethnic groups.


Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas

"All racial groups should be represented," Lee said, according to the Hill. She hoped federal weather officials "would try to be inclusive of African-American names."

A sampling of popular names that could be used include Keisha, Jamal and Deshawn, according to the paper.

NOAA idiots have no freakin' idea. They've predicted this crapola many times only to get egg on their faces.

The storm year could be ho-hum, a real kicker, or somewhere in between. When they leave an 80% fudge factor in their numbers, how could they go wrong ...

El Nino which we are in now is a strong predictor of the hurricane season. The El Nino we are in is a failry strong one. The unusual weather all across the US this winter was the effect of El Nino. El Nino sets up a steering high (the bermuda high) farther south then usual which steers storms into the gulf and across florida instead of turning them out to sea. The upper level high pressure also creates the perfect environment for good outlfow for a hurricane. Winshear in the equitorial area will also be reduced which will weaken storms. The 2004/05 hurricane season was influenced by an El Nino event and we had 28 named storms. So take heed.
