    The funny thing about el ninos is that back in '98(?) I remember the media making a huge deal out of an el nino
    saying it only happens every 12 years or so. I guess by 12 years they meant pretty much every year. Huh, who knew?

    I think we'll really be able to tell by August/September. July is usually a quiet month for Hurricanes anyway. Surprisingly enough though, there were some nice 3 footers in Va Beach today! Back to the topic at hand. From what I remember from past El Nino's, there wasn't much activity in the Atlantic. Also, it seems this year, everything has started way earlier than usual. Spring was blooming in late Feb/Early March, Tornado season was booming in the winter time, and we had 3 or 4 back to back tropical storms in the atlantic in June. I don't remember that every happening, at least to my knowledge. So it may be a dead year for Hurricanes, but I wouldn't give up hope on that just yet.

    Besides, in reality, those meteorologists are only going by past years just like someone else said... they have NO idea what the weather will do, they can only predict ! Either way, come winter time I'll have a nice wetsuit hopefully and will be ready to paddle out !

    First let me just say that I don't really have a lot a faith in the 2012 hype that was so prevelant in the recent past. I do believe that there is a tipping point in the global climate that very well may have been reached. There is some very good science that backs the argument. There are also quite a few nay Sayers that will tell you that we don't know what the weather did before we kept records, which is not quite true. Did you know that comparisons are being made to this years drought and the 1934 event, which by the way created the dust bowl and forced massive migrations out of the central part of the country. It's where the term okie comes from. Record high temps for the last year, below avaerage number of tornadoes, a line of wind sheer that stretched from NY to southestern Va that knocked out power to approx 2 mil customers.Anyway I am not a meteorologist or a climatologist. But I can read the data well enough to see what should be a pattern based on current climate conditions to see that the pattern is not being followed.

    And let me say this, the surf today on Pea Island was pretty good. Thank you Bermuda high. And if you want data, it's all right there on NOAA's site and WEATHER.com.
