Early Forecast: Veteran Meteorologist Predicts Harsh 2016/17 Winter, And the 2016 and 2017 Worst Atlantic Hurricane Seasons In 10 Years!

By P Gosselin on 15. April 2016

Ocala, FL (PRWEB) April 13, 2016 – Global Weather Oscillations (GWO) has issued the most accurate hurricane and El Niño predictions by any organization over the past 8 years, and was right on the money with the United States winter predictions and California drought the past 3 winters.

With the El Niño transitioning to what is called “Neutral Conditions” and then to a weak La Niña by fall, the GWO says weather patterns will change rapidly during the summer and fall – bringing back weather patterns that caused active Atlantic Basin hurricane seasons from 2010 through 2012 – and a much harsher winter in some areas from the United States to parts of Europe and Asia.

An accurate prediction for the year that the California drought cycle will end is available on the GWO web site.

David Dilley, former NOAA meteorologist and now CEO of Global Weather Oscillations says – unlike the past three weak hurricane seasons that were suppressed by hostile atmospheric conditions and the 2015 El Niño – the next few years will be in a “Climate Pulse Hurricane Enhancement Cycle” that will provide very favorable conditions for development of Atlantic Basin tropical storms and hurricanes.

The Atlantic Basin Hurricane Season begins June 1 and averages 12 named storms, 6 hurricanes and 2.5 major hurricanes. Last season (2015) was close to an average season with 12 named storms, 5 hurricanes and 2 major hurricanes (includes Hurricane Alex that formed in mid-January). Typically the occurrence of an El Niño during a hurricane season suppresses the number of named storms significantly – but it did not significantly reduce the number of named storms last year, and this is a clear signal for what is in store the next few seasons.

Most dangerous, costly period in 10 years

Mr. Dilley says the combination of the relatively high number of named storms last year, and the El Niño transitioning toward a La Niña during the later portion of this season (2016), signals that a Climate Pulse Hurricane Enhancement Cycle will be in place during the upcoming 2016 season and provide very favorable atmospheric conditions for hurricane development and landfalls during the next couple of years – with this likely being the most dangerous and costly period in over 10 years.

The 2016 season will have 17 named storms, 9 hurricanes, and 4 major hurricanes.

Three of the GWO United States prediction zones are at high risk for hurricane conditions in 2016, and one zone is at risk for a major impact hurricane. In addition – the 2017 season will be more dangerous and costly than 2016, with 17 named storms, 9 hurricanes, 5 major hurricanes, and several of the GWO prediction zones will be at high risk for major impact hurricanes. Over the two year period, GWO expects 5 to 8 United States Hurricane Hot Spots.

Brutal US winter, drought in California

In addition to the change in the weather pattern that will be favorable for the upcoming active hurricane seasons, Mr. Dilley says the 2016-17 winter weather pattern will be dramatically different from last winter in many regions – with the upcoming winter pattern becoming more similar to the one that caused the cold Arctic Vortex outbreaks to plunge southward during the very cold 2014 and 2015 winters and a continuation of the California drought.

The very high Arctic Region that is a production center for cold Arctic air is already responding to the ending of the El Niño, and will likely experience colder than normal temperatures this summer – all of which will once again set the stage for very cold outbreaks in some regions from the United States to Europe and Asia. Detailed hurricane zone predictions, and more detailed regional winter predictions and 2-year Global El Niño and regional predictions can be acquired through the GWO web site.

The GWO researches and develops the “Climate Pulse Technology” (CPT). The CPT prediction model incorporates natural mechanisms that control the rhythm of weather and climate cycles, which in-turn control recurring California drought cycles, winter weather and future hurricane paths.

GWO’s research over the past 30 years has found that each of the Atlantic and Gulf coastal hurricane zones have different cycles, and within each cycle there exists smaller cycles – with each zone having their own unique cycle. GWO’s so-called Hot Spot predictions for the United States have been nearly 87 percent accurate since 2006, and instrumental for long-range planning by companies and other organizations.
