Hurricane 2014

TSR predicts Atlantic hurricane activity in 2014 will be close to the long-term average. However, the uncertainties at this extended range are large. The precision of TSR’s December outlooks for upcoming Atlantic hurricane activity between 1980 and 2013 is low

The TSR (Tropical Storm Risk) extended range forecast for Atlantic hurricane activity in 2014 anticipates near-norm activity. Based on current and projected climate signals, Atlantic basin tropical cyclone activity is forecast to be close to the 1950-2013 long-term norm but about 20% below the recent 2004-2013 10-year norm. The forecast spans the period from 1st June to 30th November 2014 and employs data through to the end of November 2013. TSR’s two predictors are the forecast July-September trade wind speed over the Caribbean and tropical North Atlantic, and the forecast August-September 2014 sea surface temperatures in the tropical North Atlantic. The former influences cyclonic vorticity (the spinning up of storms) in the main hurricane track region, while the latter provides heat and moisture to power incipient storms in the main track region. At present TSR anticipates the SST predictor to have a small enhancing effect on activity and the trade wind predictor to have a small suppressing effect on activity.
