HURRICANE SEASON ENDS

Tropical storms are being replaced by frontal storms.

The 2009 hurricane season had only 9 named storms, the fewest in 12 years. Upper level El Nino winds and cooler Atlantic waters were the main contributors to less favorable conditions for storm formation.
But as we head into the winter phase of El Nino, conditions become more favorable for episodes of severe thunderstorms with tornadoes. They develop in the warm, moist unstable air in advance of low pressure systems associated with polar fronts.
