Here we go again!

Today starts the 2010 Hurricane Season:

It runs until November 30th.


Last year we got off easy …
at least relative to the active epoch we are in:

Its 9 named storms were the least since 1997.

Compare that to hyperactive 2005
when 28 names storms came alive in the tropics.


Will this year be an unwelcome repeat?

The old metric – drawn with pinpoint precision on the map – was the Russian Roulette Wheel of where the hurricanes made landfall, and at what strength.

This year the metric has undeniably changed:

It’s whether and how close and what happens when the tropical systems – both storms or hurricanes – churn up the waters near the spill of the Deepwater Horizon instead.


All of a sudden 2005 doesn’t seem so bad.
