Dont you just LOVE climate mode#3.
With a change of climate mode comes change of model.
The pacific hot pool of course also results in a larger hot pool for tropical storms so it was no surprise to get big ones over there.
It will take quite some time to even out the distribution into ocean moderated belts so likely more fun & games in Asia/Pacific next year until El Nino pops up.
Last year when mode#3 started up, the bulk of the Atlantic hurricanes were Atlantic & the USA was in drought, so with the USA now receiving monsoonal flow, the mode has evened out the temperature gradients a bit compared with 2011.
Should be more evened out next year, but not really expecting caribbean hurricanes next year either.
Have a nice day: Ag
