Colorado State forecasters Dr Gray and Dr Klotzbach have just released their 2014 Hurricane Forecast, and it looks like good news for us in Acadiana.

From KATC -

“Thanks to an increasingly expected formation of an El Niño circulation in the Pacific Basin and cooler than normal Atlantic oceanic circulations, the season is expected to below normal.

The team is forecasting 9 tropical storms, 3 hurricanes and 1 major hurricane this year. The normal is 12, 6 and 2 respectively.

Lower than normal forecast numbers however do not indicate that Louisiana and Acadiana will be less vulnerable to storms this season as El Niño has less of an influencing factor for Gulf of Mexico storms.”
