DDM EMERGENCY ALERT SYSTEM
Tropical Watch

Initial predictions for the 2014 Atlantic Hurricane season show that there will be less than normal activity. Forecasters point to the likelihood of El Nino developing. El Nino is described as warmer than average sea-surface temperatures that usually results in a less favourable environment for the development of tropical cyclones. However, it has been warned that even with El Nino, strong tropical cyclones are still possible. Forecasters predict 10 named storms, four of which will become hurricanes, with one becoming an intense Category 3,4, or 5 hurricane.

The 2013 season was usually quiet and produced no major hurricanes for the first time since 1994. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30.
