Once we see how the upcoming La Nina setup affects the weather for the rest of Winter and Spring, we'll have a better idea of the tropics

I’m thinking something like 2017’s activity will occur this year.

Besides, 27 Days until the https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018_Pacific_hurricane_season begins. I have no clue what the predictions are for that season.

Something also to note, Infamous John is on this year’s list, which happens to be my middle name!

The other day, I was thinking of how we learned about confidence intervals as part of a finance course in my MBA program.  So I predict that this year's hurricane season will include between 0 and 10,000 hurricanes.

They always do.  Usually are wrong.  Want to create hype.

You know that if the CMC model predicts a storm, your getting a storm. I have never seen a CMC model that predicts a storm, and the storm doesnt actually end up forming. Albeit, the CMC intensity on the model is a bit low (It was only saying that Irma last year would only be a minimal TS),.

Conditions ahead of the newly-tagged Invest 90L are pretty favorable, and will remain so. I壇 give it a 70% chance right now.

80% officially in 5 days, and the NHC is calling a storm of at least tropical depression strength likely to form.

Most likely Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida will see most of it.

Weather people are fun.  These two stories were written in the past 24 hours:

July active month for Atlantic basin, with formation of two hurricanes  (The paper claims 2 is active because normally a hurricane occurs once every two years.  It then goes on to say "August is one of the most active months in the hurricane season.."
https://www.tcpalm.com/story/weather/hurricanes/2018/08/01/july-active-month-atlantic-basin-formation-two-hurricanes/878219002/

Another newspaper:  "Experts at Colorado State University predict storm activity for the remainder of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season will be 'below average.'"  Yet, they show an alarming image of 2 hurricanes...from last year.

Yay for a job where you can be wrong and exaggerate and still have people hang onto every word.

So much for 60% chance for this season being below average, and we still have 47% if the season left. ACE has reached 80 (66-110 is near average)

Its fair to say 2018 hurricane seasons are over for the big ones, yes I know about the 60% chance area if interest but I just want to put this out there.

Chance of retirement IMO:
Atlantic:
Alberto: <1%
Beryl: <1%
Chris: 0%
Debby: 0%
Ernesto: 0%
Florence: 99%
Gordon: 2%
Helene: 1%
Isaac: 0%
Joyce: 0%
Kirk: 0%
Leslie: 20%
Michael: 99%
Nadine: 0%
Oscar: 0%

EPac (unless otherwise stated, chance is 0%):
Bud: <1%
Caroletta: <1%
Hector: 3%
Lane: 55% (damages not as severe as predicted)
Olivia: 3%
Nineteen: wait....
Rosa: 5%
Sergio: 8%
Walaka: 1%
Vicentee: 50% (16 deaths)
Willia: 40%
