                               for the likelihood that a predicted event will occur, or not occur.

                               Risk percent ranges define three categories of risk:    Low - Moderate- High.

Zone 1 Predictons for 2011 and 2012

New York City  Metropolitan Area - Long Island, NY

New England Coastline




Based on 111 years of record (1903-2013) for either hurricane conditions occurring somewhere within the zone during that year, or if no hurricane, a year with tropical storm conditions occurring somewhere within the zone.


A total of 31 years had a tropical cyclone occur (hurricane and/or tropical storm) affect some portion of the zone (28% annual risk). Of the 31 tropical cyclones that occurred over the 111 year period, 22 were tropical storms, and only 9 were hurricanes, three of which were major. Climatologically, this is considered to have a low to moderate risk for tropical cyclones.  The tropical storm return frequency is relatively low averaging 2 tropical storms per 10 years.  Based on the long term average, the climatological average annual risk frequency (CAAR) is quite low with just under an average of 1 hurricane per 10 years.  However, the frequencies are cyclical with some active 4 to 8 year periods, and some very inactive 8 year periods resulting in very low risks for hurricanes and tropical storms. Global Weather Oscillations (GWO) “Climate Pulse Technology” Model (GWO-CPTM) identifies these cycles and incorporates them into the predicted risks.


Climatology - Average Annual Risk:

A total of 31 tropical cyclones occurred during the 111 year period.


Climatological average annual risk (CAAR) for Hurricane and/or Tropical Storm Conditions         =  28  %  

Climatological average annual risk (CAAR) for Tropical Storm "only" conditions                               =  20 %

Climatological average Annual risk (CAAR) for hurricane conditions                                                     =   8  % 

Climatological average annual risk (CAAR) for major hurricane (CAT 3 or greater)                             =  3  % 

Percent of hurricanes that were major hurricanes (CAT 3 or greater)                                                    = 33  % 


The GWO-CPT predicted risk is compared to the CAAR (climatological average annual risk) to the right of the prediction in the prediction table below. This provides a reference point for the user to quickly compare the prediction risk for that specific year to the long-term average annual risk. The color red is assigned when there is a high risk that the predicted event will occur. The high risk category ranges from 60% to 80% and indicates GWO expects the event is likely to occur.


Definitions:  Risk Prediction Categories

Global Weather Oscillations (GWO) assigns a risk category and probability expressed in percent for the likelihood that a predicted event will occur, or not occur.

Risk percent ranges define three categories of risk; Low, Moderate and High.

Prediction - Analysis and Summary 


Northeast States entering the strongest hurricane cycle for this region in 50 years”. 


Analysis of the GWO *Climate Pulse Technology Hurricane Model predicts indicates there is a 70% risk for a hurricane hitting the New Jersey, Long Island and/or southern New England in 2011 or 2012.


GWO's Climate Pulse Hurricane Model shows historical 4-year periods in which this zone usually experiences one direct

hurricane landfall, 1 or 2 hurricanes which skirt Cape Cod, and 1 or 2 tropical storms. Historical records indicate that during

these cycles, a hurricane which passes near Cape Hatteras, North Carolina and Cape Cod, Massachusetts, is followed by

a land-falling hurricane within 1 or 2 years of this event.  In 2010 hurricane Earl traveled just offshore from the North Carolina

coast and moved north-northeast just to the southeast of Cape Cod. This event is likely the precursor for a land-falling

hurricane or strong tropical storm in 2011.


Analysis of the GWO model predicts at least one year with a hurricane. Expect a Category 1 or 2 storm -  though a risk does

exist for a major hurricane tracking rapidly north to northeast just offshore of the North Carolina coast and reaching New Jersey,

Long Island and southern New England coastal areas as a Category 2. The last Category 3 hurricane to strike this zone was in

1954. There remains some controversy as to whether Hurricane Gloria in 1985 struck Long Island as a Category 2 or 3. 

Since then, the population in the coastal areas has increased dramatically along with tremendous amount of new construction

over the last half century. A major hurricane affecting this zone presents a high risk for significant property damage.


The GWO Climate Pulse Hurricane Model indicates that this zone will enter a very active cycle centered on 2011 and 2012,

the strongest and most active cycle for this region in 50 years. It is likely to produce the first hurricane to strike the Northeast

Coastal areas in 20 years.  Hurricanes which hit New England and Long Island and the New Jersey area occurred on these

cycles in 1903, 1944, and Hurricane Bob in 1991.


Climate Pulse Analog years similar to 2011 and 2012:

When looking at GWO-CPTM Model analog years, the predominate analog years most similar to 2011 and 2012 are  years 1991,

1944, and 1903. 

In 1903 a Category 1 hurricane made landfall near Cape May New Jersey in mid-September, with tropical force winds near the New York City area.

In 1944 - A Category 3 Hurricane moved northeast across Cape Hatteras NC in mid-September, skirting the New Jersey coast and finally making landfall as a Category 2 in eastern Long Island and Rhode Island.

In 1991 - Hurricane Bob moved Northeast across Cape Hatteras NC as a Category 3 in Mid-August, and then across Eastern Long Island into Rhode Island as a Category 2 in mid to late August.
