Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, August 16, 2019

NOAA forecasters monitoring oceanic and atmospheric patterns say conditions are now more favorable for above-normal hurricane activity since El Nino has now ended. Two named storms have formed so far this year and the peak months of the hurricane season, August through October, are now underway ... Seasonal forecasters with NOAA's Climate Prediction Center have increased the likelihood of an above-normal Atlantic hurricane season to 45% (up from 30% from the outlook issued in May). The likelihood of near-normal activity is now at 35%, and the chance of below-normal activity has dropped to 20%.

Some years it is above 'normal' and others it is below - not news.

I forecast a 100% chance of hundreds of posts if it's above normal, and mostly silence if it's normal or below normal.

Well, if it IS a 'normal' season, then indeed there would be "no news".

Minor disturbance just passed by, but didn't amount to much.
