  1. Discussion Welcome... poor Atlantic hurricane season aids strength of super-typhoon?

    What's up my fellow weather nerds! I'm wondering if our super-weak hurricane season in the Atlantic played a major influence on the strength and size of the super-typhoon that just ripped through the Western Pacific? With the lack of heat exchange that would normally occur from the months of May through November, could all of that "stockpiled" heat somehow have meandered it's way around the globe to escape elsewhere? I guess wherever was the path of least resistance for it to do so?

    One night over this past weekend, I saw where the Weather Channel showed the wind speeds and scope of the storm... and my jaw just hit the floor! So feel free to chime in on this topic, or if you have any stand alone thoughts on the hurricane season itself and how that may be relating to other facets of global weather.

    I know that typhoon was as serious as it gets and fully understand this topic could be viewed as a sensitive subject ie. "too soon," but i'm here to try and understand the weather behind it, that's all. Thanks for your time....

    Yah. That is why I have covered my house in tin foil. HAARP will never get me!!!!

    BTW, where are the HAARP conspiracy people at this year? Maybe they can blame HAARP for the quiet hurricane season in the Atlantic.

    Nibiru making the earth wobble. Corexit in the gulf keeping warm water from going where it's suppose to.

    here's more weird weather anomaly.

    That part of the world seems to get F'ed in the A every 2 years or so. Ring of Fire + Largest Ocean on Earth = F*CKED, at least in their case.

    Mother nature has to do something to keep the population down over there.

    Seriously though that was a pretty major hut wrecker! It was so strong the weather folks were saying that it was like being in tornado that lasted for 4 hours!

    Speaking of hut wrecking, that's the biggest problem over there, people just don't have well built shelters like we do over here. I can imagine that everything just got anniallated!!! Wonder if they have ever heard of the "The Three Little Pigs"?

    Thought you found Nibiru on that webcam last year?

    No, in Climatology, you would never correlate one individual storm with a cause/effect relationship. You would look at the longer scale trends. This is like saying that Super Storm Sandy was so strong because of Global Warming.

    Tropical activity can be correlated to teleconnections (large scale weather phases), such as ENSO (El Nino). These are generally considered the precursors to a heightened or weaker tropical season. But, as stated above, that has very little meaning for the individual isolated storms.

    Influences on Tropical Storms:
    Ocean Temperature
    Atmospheric Environement

    If the ocean temps are warm enough, and then atmospheric environment is favorable, the tropical storm will strengthen, and the atmospheric steering patterns will dictate where it goes.
