    As one of the most active hurricane seasons winds down a new group of modelers claims they can start predicting a decade out.

    I'm somewhat dubious the year to year numbers will pan out or be worth much because the annual variability is so high. I do think climate models probably are of some use predicting average number and geographic range in future decades.

    This is interesting. I've seen a short documentary about determining when there could be tornados, or how they are called in English (example - Catrina). Though, that was tree cutting and looking into them. Some particular trees takes more water, than the others, and since it's a lot of water, obviously, it looks different. Sorry for a poor explanation...

    Looking at Fig. 1 in the Nature Geoscience summary, the agreement between historical and hindcasted data is remarkable - too good to be true perhaps.
