El Nino could slow the remainder of hurricane season



Flexing its atmospheric muscle, an unusually potent El Niño already has made for a significantly slower than normal hurricane season, keeping most of the systems weak and short-lived.

It likely will slow down the remainder of the storm season, Mike Halpert, deputy director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center, said on Thursday.

“Without doubt, El Niño is creating the factors that play into an inactive season,” he said. “Clearly, nothing will change over the next few months.”
