Hurricane Ian Makes Landfall on Fort Myers-Cape Coral Florida
A Warmer Pacific Ocean Near the Equator Usually Means Fewer Hurricanes in the Atlantic
Cooler Equator = La Nina (Top) Warmer Equator = El Nino (Bottom)
According to NOAA's Climate Prediction Center, the chance of an El Nino by this fall is about 62%
Warm Ocean Temperatures Enhance Tropical Development. The Atlantic Ocean Sea Surface Temperatures are Higher than Average.
A strong El Nino offsets warm ocean temperatures—neutral conditions contribute to more storms.
Unless the El Nino / La Nina Conditions Shift to a Strong El Nino, the season could become very active due to the warmer than average Sea Surface Temperatures
