Default news story about Atlantic warning and hurricanes?

Over the past two days, I've seen a news story on TV about three times.
Atleast once was on the local NBC station. I could also have seen it on
local CBS and FOX news programs, and on NBC's morning shows.

What I caught of it was the statement that the reason for the heavy
hurricane season is that the Atlantic, or some portion of the Atlantic, is
variously extremely warm/ the warmest it has been in something like 900 or
a thousand years.

I can't find anything about this on the local NBC and ABC affiliate web
sites, in Google news, on the AP web site, nor on CNN, nor through a general
google search, though I did find about six articles arguing that all that is
going on in the Atlantic is some 45 year cycle. No clue exactly what they
are arguing with, now... but all of thse articles were several years old.

Today's/ yesterday's news story was about something someone is currently
saying, but I didn't catch who that is.

Has anyone else seen this news story?

By the way, I was obliged to cc my mother because I couldn't figure out how
to bcc to a newsgroup; if you reply, which I hope someone does , could
y'all please un-cc her?

Default news story about Atlantic warning and hurricanes?

I heard that the Atlantic is unusally warm, too. IIRC it was on
some NBC news show. As for warmest in the last 900 or 1000
years, I didn't hear that part, and I'm not sure how that would
have been determined, although such things can be inferred
to some extent from sea floor and/or coral cores, IIRC. Sorry
I don't have a handy reference.

There are additional reasons why the tropical storm season this
years is expected to be worse than usual, as it has been in
several recent years, including interdecadal oscillations in
atmospheric circulation.

Cheers,
Russell

Not sure if this comes close to what you're looking for but the UCL
(University College London) has a seasonal weather forecast that
mentions anomalous temps in the Atlantic:

http://forecast.mssl.ucl.ac.uk/docs/...astJul2005.pdf

Quote regarding anomalous temps in the Atlantic:

"Key Predictors for 2005
The key factors behind the TSR forecast for an exceptionally
above-average hurricane season in 2005 are the anticipated strong
enhancing effect of July-September forecast trade winds at 925mb height
over the Caribbean Sea and tropical North Atlantic region (7.5oN -
17.5oN, 30oW - 100oW), and of August-September forecast sea surface
temperature for the Atlantic MDR (10oN - 20oN, 20oW - 60oW). The
current forecast anomalies (1975-2004 climatology) for these predictors
are 0.83±0.54 ms-1 (up from last month’s value of 0.52±0.53 ms-1) and
0.60±0.17oC (up from last month’s value of 0.43±0.22oC). The forecast
skills (1985-2004) for these predictors at this lead are 63% and 72%
respectively."

I found it. It took some research. I had to contact the local
network affiliates whose broadcasts I had listened to. All three of
them aired teh same piece. Two of the three responded to me.


I probably couldn't find it because I was searching for hurricanes
and atlantic warming. All three local newscasters who related this
story added that hurricanes are fed by warm water, which is not in the
original piece, and "hurricanes" actually appears nowhere in the
story. They also added other pieces of explation, and mentioned global

warming. Though "hurricane" does appear. I was supposed to be
searching for "heat wave".

Source I need to track down is Peter Frumhoff, Union of Concerned
Scientists.

National Geographic article is a not quite coincidence. It was
provoked by devastation caused by the hurricanes. Not by the heat
wave.

By the way, the August National Geographic has an article on the
subject.
