    Sorry bout that,



    1. I call bullshit on the NOAA, they screwed up last year, with all *The Sky Is Falling Hurricane Predictions*.
    2. Slowest hurricane year on record, I think this years hurricane totals will be low.
    3. Errrr, we shall see who is right by fall, ofcourse I will WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Up to 14 hurricanes predicted for Atlantic storm season - Yahoo! News


    "WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Atlantic storm season could produce as many as 14 hurricanes this year, the U.S. government's top climate agency predicted on Thursday, setting the scene for potentially the most intense season since 2005.

    In its first forecast for the storm season that begins next Tuesday, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) forecast 14 to 23 named storms, with 8 to 14 developing into hurricanes, making it one of the most active ever.

    Three to 7 of those could be major Category 3 or above hurricanes, with winds of more than 110 miles per hour (177 km per hour), the agency said, echoing earlier predictions from meteorologists for a particularly severe season that could disrupt U.S. oil, gas and refinery operations in the Gulf of Mexico.

    In addition to the risk that major hurricanes can pose to about one-quarter of U.S. oil production and more than a 10th of natural gas output offshore in the Gulf, this year's storms threaten to complicate efforts to combat the environmental disaster of BP's gushing oil well."

    Sorry bout that,






    1. These forecasters of doom and gloom are effecting the economy, futures on commodities went up because of thier gloomy predictions.FT.com / Commodities - Commodities surge after hurricane warning
    2. I wonder if they invest right before they make these sorted predictions?
    3. Sure lets wager, whats your poison?
    4. Friendly ofcourse,...:lol:
    5. I predict two hurricanes that will amount to more than a fart in a whirlwind this year.
    6. That will miss USA.

    Retarded Monkeys could throw random darts at a crap table and probably come up with a better forecast than these bozos.....

    Long term weather forecasts are notoriously unreliable. Well, unless you're AL GORE!!!!

    Hurricanes, by definition, are unpredictable.

    But, living down here and feeling the unusually early heat and rise in water temperature, I'd tend to agree.

    I'll be prepared, regardless.....

    If they were that business savvy they would be investing their time into financial modeling not weather models. Are you not looking at the scientific data at all(sst, nao, etc.)? When you say two hurricanes for a year where the outlier is 2005 year when it comes to sea surface temperatures..your just fuckin with me right? I will never post on this forum again if that happens and that is not even a bet. If they reach the 14 total storms, You can never post anything that has to do with science ever again. Vice versa for me. Is that good?

    Sorry bout that,







    1. But can you say for sure they didn't invest into the commodities right before they leak these gloomy predictions?
    2. I think some one should police this, these Al Gore wannabee's will do anything for a buck, hook or crook, *Show me tha money!*
    3. No I am serious, my *Gut Hurricane Detector* says, *Just Two*.
    4. The second one will get sorta close to a USA border, the first will miss USA entirely.
    5. Other than that we will see many tropical deppressions, which will cause a certain amount of depression to the AlGorians.:lol:
    6. So your comfortable with self banning when you lose huh?
    7. I don't know about that, I will have to give it some thought,.....:cool:
