Tropical Cyclone General Discussion:
I should make a point of telling the truth here, I live on the upper Texas gulf coast, and Debby is making me worry, considering the current official forecast from the NHC. Although, my worry has dissipated somewhat after finding the actual models from a website which show that the models are all over the place.

- 70% chance of
- 13 to 20 named storms
- 7 to 11 to become hurricanes
- 3 to 6 major hurricanes
- A continuation of the atmospheric climate pattern, which includes a strong west African monsoon, that is responsible for the ongoing era of high activity for Atlantic hurricanes that began in 1995;
- Warmer-than-average water temperatures in the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea; and
- El Niņo is not expected to develop and suppress hurricane formation.
On the other hand, the Eastern and Central Northern Pacific basins are predicted to have below-normal seasons.
