That's because all the hurricanes are forming in the Gulf of Mexico lately! Or it sure seems that way from here on the Texas Gulf Coast.

You realize, of course, this is a direct consequence of locating too many blowhards "deep in the heart of Texas." (My brother being on of them in Houston.)


Seriously, does seem the gulf has caught some bad stuff lately.


The north Atlantic Overturn (convection flow) has started up again apparently. I think this would be part of the cause as it drags cooler water from the Arctic towards the equator, thus cooling the Equatorial waters which need to be at 27 degrees (celcius) for hurricanes to form.

Michael W. Kruse

That would certainly fit with what I've read from other experts. Hurricane activity appears to be overwhelmingly related to cyclical changes in ocean currents, not global temp change.
