Welcome WuBloggers!
HURRICANE EASON PREDICTION LIST HAS STARTED!
Deadline: June 1st, 2017. There are 3 months left!

This is the hurricane prediction blog I conduct here at WU. So pleased to reach my 5th year in 2017.

Let's get to business!
As some of you may remember back in 2013 I started with some sort of survey or poll requesting your guess for outcome of the upcoming the Atlantic hurricane season and numbers rained on me! Same thing for this year, I hope.

I came up with some rules/suggestions to keep things in order:
- No exaggerated forecast, keep it reasonable (C'mon, 15 major hurricanes?)
- Don't ask for constant updating (Feb-1 update my numbers, Feb-2 update my numbers...)
- Be patient
- Correct any mistakes associated with your prediction
- Remember deadlines. When time is up, time is up!

A United Kingdom agency issued the first forecast for 2017 back in December of 2016. TSR predicts a near-normal hurricane season with 14 named storms, 6 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes.

5th Anniversary Yes, already 5 years doing this. Lets take a look back in time to the beginning. Oh, remember I had another handle; trHUrrIXC5MMX.

2013 142 predictions. 7 assertions.
2014 112 predictions. 11 assertions.
2015 158 predictions. 31 assertions.

2016 135 predictions. 5 assertions
The following were the winners of the 2016 hurricane forecast:
1. Atlantichurricanes #42
2. Zacweatherkiduk #60
3. Biloxipat3 #61
4. Jrweathermanfl #68
5. Ricki13th #123

In total I've had 547 predictions and 54 assertions ever since 2013 when I started.

Hey Max, I hope you'll find a place to continue with our precious predictions! Maybe a thread in the new blog?
I have no gut feeling yet about the upcoming season. So I'll wait to communicate my "important" numbers to whatever place time will take us. Hope you're well and we'll keep in touch!
Hi Barb. How ya doin?
I want to keep doing this Im just unsure as to how that new thread thing is going to work given people on the main blog keep saying different things

It been 5 years now, I don't want to give it up but I'd do it if I have no other way out

Quoting 24. weatherman994:



How do you see this season turning out with landfalls and total numbers of storms/hurricanes
Well I have no clue
It's very unpredictable but I do fear that one devastating storm like Matthew or Sandy. I'm calling for average to slightly above season here.
Anywhere from 11-15, 5-8, 2-5
Just a broad prediction from my end, I have to think about which numbers to choose from there

Hello Marvin
Unexpected it was to check in and have noticed your comment.
Im happy you're doing well

You know, with time as things evolve they get more expensive and not easy to afford or to keep up with. This was noted with WU already. Sadly mine, yours and many other's blogs will not continue.
And I mean Im not talking about greed, because it also plays a role in the equation! Look at Washington DC, for example. Upsetting.

Im trying to figure what to do with all this. Don't want to make a decision about where to take my hurricane season fun yet tho the changes are permanent and all set.
We still have a month to breathe.

I think the U.S will get action again but its depending on El Nino if it stalls or stay weak then yea we will see some monsters this year

Hey Max..
Long time..
Been keeping myself at bay because of the "Big Sell"..
Thought it unwise then and now..
Didn't spend any $$ or participated..
I personally don't sell out..
Anyway..
Sorry you and many others are now caught by and sold out by the changes..
Marginalized as it were..
I won't go into all that..
Look at my post in Brians blog 1945 I'm thinking..
It may help..
I dunno..
Really missed your progress here and am glad you stuck with it..
I will miss you all..
WU mail me if they decide that they can afford us anymore..
I guess IBM is broke..
No cash..
Sooo Sorry for them..
Yeah right..
Rather have shinny new website to keep non-thekies(spelling??)..
Out..
But majority rules..
They don't have to ask me..
will probably search and find another blog-site that won't be selling out soon..
Good luck my friend..
GB..
pcola57..
PS..
13-4-4 for me on your predictions this year..

Quoting 14. WU_760842:

Despite the spectre of El Nino, I think that it will be one of the more interesting seasons in a few years. I'm thinking 13 - 6 - 4, but with two major landfalls.

First off, if El Nino does develop, it won't be particularly strong. At least not until late into the year. So wind shear shouldn't be to significant

Secondly, we know that there will be plenty of oceanic heat to fuel storms when they do develop. SST's are near certain to be record -breaking- or- close- to. The record late storm of last October, which I also believe was both the highest- latitude named storm on record and longest lived named storm in the North Atlantic, is likely a portender of things to come. If both the latitude and date storms can reach into expands, that has to increase the likelihood of both storms and landfalls.

Lastly, as a commentator already alluded to, the Gulf of Mexico is simply due for a major hurricane.

Hey WU_322942

You are entitled to a prediction of your choice. I can be saying 12 named storms, you can say 15 others can say 5. It is all good with me. You can make changes in the future if you'd like.

I just tried to mention in the blog something outrageous like 15 major hurricanes, that is a little unrealistic given the hurricane activity history and the rough forecast. Certainly a hyper active season is not expected.

I have been thinking about this for a while and I believe we may have a 15-7-3 situation. A near normal season is possible but with the possibility of a stupid El Niño developing late in 2017, that could slow it down. I think we may have a weak El Niño or neutral conditions and that could set the stage for an active season. I'm just waiting for a hurricane, not a tropical storm, to hit the upper Texas coast. It has been almost 9 years since Ike and not one storm since then has struck the southeast Texas region! This hurricane drought in Texas is bound to end this year for sure.

Hey there guys
I'm surprised I got already 8 predictions from you. Yaas!

I believe for the most part this may be an average season but it only takes one hurricane to make it dreadful. Think of the 1992 hurrican season, a really quiet, below-average 10 named storms but with one nearly apocalyptic hurricane Andrew. At the time, hurricanes Katrina and Sandy didn't exist yet so Andrew ranked as the top destructive US hurricane in history 25 years ago.
