--Welcome WuBloggers!HURRICANE EASON PREDICTION LIST HAS STARTED!
Deadline: June 1st, 2017
. There are 3 months left!
This is the hurricane prediction blog I conduct here at WU. So pleased to reach my 5th year in 2017.
Let's get to business!
As some of you may remember back in 2013 I started with some sort of survey or poll requesting your guess for outcome of the upcoming the Atlantic hurricane season and numbers rained on me! Same thing for this year, I hope.
I came up with some rules/suggestions to keep things in order:
- No exaggerated forecast, keep it reasonable (C'mon, 15 major hurricanes?)
- Don't ask for constant updating (Feb-1 update my numbers, Feb-2 update my numbers...)
- Be patient
- Correct any mistakes associated with your prediction
- Remember deadlines. When time is up, time is up!
A United Kingdom agency issued the first forecast for 2017 back in December of 2016. TSR predicts a near-normal hurricane season with 14 named storms, 6 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes. 5th Anniversary
Yes, already 5 years doing this. Lets take a look back in time to the beginning. Oh, remember I had another handle; trHUrrIXC5MMX
