Another attempt by climate scientist to find the holy grail by linking AGW to an increase in damaging hurricanes – but have they?

When someone tries to tell you hurricanes never reach the British Isles just remind them of Debbie and Faith
Can hurricanes reach the British Isles? Yes they can – check out hurricanes Debbie and Faith.

The GFS model changes it’s mind again
Don’t forget that when Lorenzo reaches the UK – if it ever does – it won’t be a hurricane.
What’s left of Lorenzo makes an entrance stage left on Thursday – with echoes of hurricane Debbie in 1961
Did you know that tropical cyclones are taking much longer to transition into hurricanes.
A recent article by Michael Mann includes two reports that hurricanes are slowing down and stalling.
I wonder if Barry didn’t produce as much rain as was predicted because of poor NWP modelling or a failure in global heating to do it’s thing?
The updated HURDAT2 through 2018 for the Atlantic basin is now available to download. Here’s a closer look at the 2018 season. There were eight hurricanes in all but just Michael made it to category five. Hurricane Leslie lasted for twenty two days before dissipating. Four tropical cyclones made landfall in the US of which two were of hurricane strength. As you can see the British Isles was in the firing line for at least two of the tropical cyclones, in what was a slightly above average North Atlantic season. The season started really slowly and didn’t really take off...
Scientists at NOAA’s National Hurricane Center conducted a detailed post-storm analysis on all the data available for Hurricane Michael and have determined that the storm’s estimated intensity at landfall was 140 knots (160 mph). This final wind intensity is a 5 knot (5 mph) increase over the operational estimate and makes Michael a category 5 storm on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale at the time of landfall on October 10, 2018, near Mexico Beach and Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida. Michael is the first hurricane to make landfall in the United States as a category 5 since Hurricane Andrew in 1992, and only the fourth on...
