2011 Hurricane Season to Be Active!!!!!

Good Afternoon,

        With the 2011 Hurricane season two days away, we are back to start reporting to you all the latest weather information! First, we will start with the 2011 Hurricane prediction recently released by NOAA. On May 19, 2011, the Climate Prediction Center issued NOAA's outlook for the Atlantic hurricane season. The CPC expected that 12–18 named storms, 6–10 hurricanes, and 3–6 major hurricanes would form in the Atlantic during 2011. The center cited above-normal sea surface temperatures, a weakening La NiƱa, and the effect of the warm regime of the Atlantic multidecadal oscillation as the bases behind their forecast, adding that seasonal climate models hint that "activity comparable to some of the active seasons since 1995" could occur.
         With what seems to be a very active season in the making, we will be constantly monitering the Atlantic, Carribean and the Gulf of Mexico and keep you updated here at Xtreme Weather Tracker.

Here are the current Sea Surface Temperatures for the Atlantic Basin. As you can see we are experiencing above normal temperatures for this early in the year. The Carribean is especially warm with water temps around 85 degrees. This is the breeding ground for tropical cyclones early in the season and some models hint of possible slow development in about 2 weeks.
