ABC6 WeatherLab - 2014 Hurricane Season Recap

Posted: Updated:
With the 2014 Atlantic Hurricane Season almost over, it's time to take a look back at the season, and also to verify the forecast that was given for this Hurricane Season back in the Spring. You might remember on a previous edition of WeatherLab, we took a look at the forecast for the 2014 Atlantic Hurricane Season, which called for a rather quiet Hurricane Season, with below-normal numbers of named storms (8 to 13), hurricanes (3 to 6) and major hurricanes (1 to 2). Well, as we head into early November, this forecast looks pretty darn good. As of early November, here are the actual totals: named storms...8, hurricanes...6, major hurricanes...2. This is very impressive, especially considering the hurricane forecasting community came into this Hurricane Season eating some serious crow. You see, the forecast for the 2013 Hurricane Season was for a very strong season, yet it ended up being one of the weakest on record. What a difference a year makes.
