Hurricane Prediction

This year's hurricane predictions is now in place. It is the only instance of which I am aware in which meteorologists make predictions between a five day or so short term forecast, and generally long term climate predictions (including El Nino effects), other than the decidely non-scientific Farmer's Almanac. This year is predicted to have eight Hurricanes.

The model based on factors like rainfalls in Africa, is fascinating.

I can't type the accent mark. Sometimes if I cut and paste it works.
