Why have we had such good weather in the middle of the hurricane season?
Why have we had such good weather in the middle of the hurricane season? At the beginning of the hurricane season, the forecasts said that it would be more intense than the last one. However, two months have passed and fortunately, no cyclone has appeared on our shores.
Before you go out to cheer and say that “we are saved”, that “this year there is no hurricane”, we will share some interesting details with you.
According to a report from NOAA, the US meteorological authority, the little cyclone activity in the Atlantic, to date, is due to a cloud of dust from the Sahara desert. This phenomenon can influence the formation and intensification of tropical cyclones. As you hear it, the dust from the Sahara, which is flying around, causes many cyclones to be “deadborn”, without the strength to develop. This cloud “being 50% drier, can weaken the formation of a cyclone or a storm,” says NOAA.
On the other hand, the dust of the Sahara is the cause of the spectacular sunsets, with such intense colors that we have enjoyed lately.
However, that cloud is on the move. It is not a permanent phenomenon, it depends on the flow of the wind. As soon as it changes its course, the forecast hurricanes will form again. Even more so, when the most active months of the hurricane season lie ahead: August, September, and October.
The respite provided by the Sahara cloud may be coming to an end. If you don’t already have flood insurance, our advice is to get it right away. With the one that is falling, it would only be necessary for rain associated with a storm to play a trick on you and ruin your largest investment.
