Hurricane Conference Day 1

LETS HEAD TO SOUTH PADRE ISLANDS WHERE THE NATIONAL TROPICAL WEATHER CONFERENCE IS TAKING PLACE WHERE OUR TREY MEYNIG GIVES US THIS REPORT ON THE UPCOMING HURRICANE SEASON.

METEOROLOGIST DOCTOR PHIL KLOTZBACH WITH COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY PREDICTS LA NINA CONDITIONS TO DEVELOP THIS SUMMER, WHICH WOULD USUALLY MEAN AN ACTIVE SEASON, BUT RECENT COOLER ATLANTIC WATERS AND A DRYER ATMOSPHERE MAY CHANGE THAT SCENARIO SOMEWHAT. WE ARE PREDICTING AN AVERAGE HURRICANE SEASON THIS YEAR, THE FORECAST IS FOR A TOTAL OF 12 NAMED STORMS, OF THOSE 12, 5 BECOMING HURRICANES AND OF THOSE 5, TWO BECOMING MAJOR HURRICANES, WHICH IS PRETTY MUCH ALONG THE LINES OF THE AVERAGE HURRICANE SEASON THAT WE HAVE OBSERVED OVER THE PAST 30 YEARS.

AS THE SEASON GETS CLOSER, THESE NUMBERS WILL SURELY BE REDEFINED.
