Colorado State University has issued its forecast for the 2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season forecast. The University states that it expects ‘that the 2016 Atlantic basin hurricane season will have approximately average activity’.
The summary of the forecast reads as follows:
‘The current weakening El Niño is likely to transition to either neutral or La Niña conditions by the peak of the Atlantic hurricane season. While the tropical Atlantic is relatively warm, the far North Atlantic is quite cold, potentially indicative of a negative phase of the Atlantic Multi-Decadal Oscillation. We anticipate a near-average probability for major hurricanes making landfall along the United States coastline and in the Caribbean.’
