Wednesday, November 05, 2008 | Ryan Maue's Seasonal Tropical Cyclone Activity Update

Fact: There has been one Category 5 Tropical Cyclone in the Northern Hemisphere in 2008 (Jangmi in the WPAC). A total of 8 Category 4+ developed in 2008 (winds > 114 kts+)
Record inactivity continues: Past 24-months of Northern Hemisphere TC activity (ACE) lowest in 30-years.

Still, it seems the NOAH people were working overtime to assign names to gusts of wind in the Atlantic so as to prop up predictions of increased activity made in the last few years.
