The 2014 Atlantic Hurricane Season has arrived and forecasters from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predict a near or below normal season. Predictions include anywhere from eight to thirteen tropical storms, three to six hurricanes, and one to two major hurricanes.  The driving force behind this year’s anticipated slow season is the development of El Niño this summer. El Niño “causes stsronger wind shear, which reduces the number and intensity of tropical storms and hurricanes”.
