East PAC vs West ATL
      #72941 - Thu Aug 31 2006 09:21 AM

This is a question for any of our resident METS or anyone who can offer a response for myself and anyone else who's knowledge of the Tropics is limited...

Noticing the activity that the East PAC has been having with seemingly one storm after another coming off of Central America, can we expect to start seeing that level of activity being transferred over to our part of the world in the West ATL and Caribbean soon?

If so, what is that process called and how does the El Nino / La Nina effect play into these areas in relation to relative cyclonic activity?

I know that this subject has probably already been touched on in the past, but, it seems that we have a whole new crop of newbies in the forum this year and this information might be helpful for some.

There was a big discussion on this in the ask and tell forum under the subject : Hurricane Trends. More El Nino / La Nina than east pac. Here is the Quick Link

But please if anyone can add to this discussion please do.

It is all El Nino. Might be weak but it is effecting this Hurricane season. I'm glad for a slow season. I need a break:
