2022 Hurricane season

    2022 is proving to be a very quiet year globally so far, with all metrics well below the LTA to date.

    The Atlantic, widely forecast to be a very active season, has been almost dormant up to now. ACE is running at just 15% of the LTA, Named Storm Days at just 21%. No hurricanes have formed. The media have been awfully quiet about this.

    The NW Pacific is doing only slightly better. The NE Pacific is the only basin showing any real activity in terms of ACE and NSD. The Indian Ocean has had a few more weak named systems that haven't contributed much to ACE, which still remains below LTA.

    All data from here.

    It looks like the Atlantic may finally be waking up from its slumber, with "Potential Tropical Cyclone" Four having formed in the western Gulf of Mexico but not amounting to much as it moves inland over Mexico. Further east, the MDR may show signs of developments, though at the moment no more than a 20% chance in the next 5 days.
