Future Start

I know it's kind of late to make this, but most models indicate that there's a 50%+ chance El Nino will reappear by the end of this year. It's possible, in fact likely, that the streak of above-normal seasons will continue for the fourth year in a row. I'm not expecting something like 2015 again, but I'm hoping this year will be more active than last year, because those random dead stretches (especially in May, June and October) were rather annoying. This year has lots of potential, and I fervently hope it doesn't go to waste. ~ KN2731 {talk} 11:13, May 5, 2017 (UTC)


This season is coming to a close. This season was not as notable and is a near-average season. Hi!- 19:24, November 26, 2017 (UTC)

In terms of ACE, that is. The amount of named storms were quite above-average. To be honest, this EPac season was quite boring especially in comparison to the past 3 years. Assuming Selma is the final storm and we don't get an unexpected surprise (like Winnie or Omeka), this will be the earliest end since 2009. The CPac has seen no storm formations for the first time since 2012 (UNLESS a re-Omeka occurs, which I highly doubt will happen). The low ACE despite the above-average named storm amount was mainly due to all the disgraceful failures (Adrian through Calvin, Jova, Pilar and beyond). The Atlantic was much more interesting this year (even though it was the most devastating season on record). ~ Steve Talk PageMy Edits📧 00:37, November 27, 2017 (UTC)
Well, this season has been below expectations. Especially since zero named storms formed in the CPac this year, a far cry from just 2 years earlier. Guaranteed, the number of named storms, hurricanes, and major hurricanes were above average, but too many storms this year ended up weak and/or short-lived (essentially almost all the TSs). This made the ACE pretty much on the low side (still below a hundred), compared to the median of 115. Maybe the developing La Niña is killing off the EPac (and unfortunately making the Atlantic more active). I'd rather have an active EPac than active Atlantic because more storms in this basin are fishspinners. ~ KN2731 {talk} 11:57, November 27, 2017 (UTC)
I'm gonna miss Otis, Nanda... At least we'll all miss the storm that always is a Cat 4. You bring that anticipating, knowing spark to an EPAC hurricane season. I mean, when you're around, we always know something exciting is going to happen; we're in for a treat. And you never fail to impress us, especially for a new kid on the block who was only around since the 90s. Why did you have to go too soon? Do we have to wait six years for you to make your comeback? 
We'll never forget you.

You're referring to Kenneth ~ Steve Talk PageMy Edits📧 22:35, November 27, 2017 (UTC)
lol how do you know mate :D anyway what has been your favourite storm this year?? SUPREME COLGATE CREW 22:49, November 27, 2017 (UTC)
I simply looked it up lol. And indeed Kenneth was first used in the 90s after replacing Knut and was a C4 every time. I have to say that my favorite storm this year was Typhoon Noru, with Otis and Lee being a very close 2nd and 3rd place respectively. Noru is my most favorite because of its longevity and sudden unexpected explosion to super typhoon intensity. It got more powerful than both Otis and Lee. Although it did strike Japan, it wasn't really that bad. ~ Steve Talk PageMy Edits📧 06:53, November 28, 2017 (UTC)
Dr. Masters made a blog post about the end of this year's EPac season, and while it wasn't too notable on impact, it did have some neat trivial facts, like Adrian being the earliest storm on record in the EPac proper and Selma being the first tropical storm to strike El Salvador (although 1997's Andres did so as a depression), and the first October storm to strike Central America since Simone in 1968.
