Tracks of all known Atlantic tropical cyclones...Image via WikipediaThe Washington Post: "The tropical atmosphere has been unusually biased against Atlantic hurricane development this season. As discussed in my last post, global-scale mechanisms have stacked the odds against it, nudging the general circulation into a regime that has so far been really dry, and really stable (unusually warm aloft) for long periods over the Atlantic, Caribbean, and the Gulf of Mexico. Time and time again, the conditions have been especially unkind to hurricane production. Never before in our records have so few hurricanes (5) developed from so many named systems (16)."
