The East Coast from North Carolina to Maine, including the New York area, will face almost twice the usual risk from hurricanes this season, WSI Corp. said in its latest Atlantic storm forecast.
August is about to end without an Atlantic hurricane for the first time since 2002, calling into question predictions of a more active storm season than normal.
Northern Europe and the U.K. will have above-normal temperatures for the next three months, while parts of Iberia and southern Europe will be cooler, according to Weather Services International.
A lack of Pacific Ocean warming and of blocking patterns in the Atlantic will probably mean warmer- than-normal weather in the eastern U.S. for the next three months, said Todd Crawford, chief meteorologist at Weather Services International.
"The very cold pattern of November is dead and gone, and the El Nino event is quickly roaring to life."
