Tropical Weather Outlook for the Week of November 2nd
-There are no active tropical cyclones today, and any development is very unlikely over the next 7 days. Defcon ratings are the lowest condition of 5 for all regions. -Due to a strong El Nino event, the 2015 hurricane season recorded well below normal levels of both overall (10TS/3H/2MH) and U.S. landfall (2TS/0H/0MH) activity, an outcome in-line with my preseason forecasts. -The outlook for 2016 is uncertain and dependent on the evolution of ENSO state. However, there is potential for a more active season if a La Nina event develops in the spring as some models suggest. -As less than 3% of the hurricane season remains, this will be the last regularly scheduled outlook issued in 2015.
