06 hurricane season over

Technically the Hurricane Season doesn’t end until Nov 30, but it’s looking like you can stick a fork in this year’s season!

The tropical Atlantic basin is tranquil and expected to stay that way until next year. Wind shear has moved into the northern Caribbean Sea and sea surface temperatures are beginning to cool. El Nino is active in the equatorial Pacific and should remain active for at least six more months.

The 2006 season turned out to be rather quite (sic) with a basin dominated by almost relentless wind shear and the 2007 season may turn out to be just as quiet if the strong El Nino persists. Enjoy the off-season.
