Hurricane season in the US will start earlier, La Nina will replace El Nino
The US National Center for Hurricane Watch estimates a 90% chance of a tropical storm, dubbed "Bonnie," in Georgia this coming Memorial Day weekend.
Despite the fact that the hurricane season usually lasts from 1 June to 30 November, about a dozen tropical storms are expected in the states from Maine to Florida, five of which can turn into hurricanes.
The cyclone formed off the coast of Georgia, and already on Saturday, as experts believe, residents of this state will face a tropical storm, which will be accompanied by heavy rainfall and strong wind.
Meteorologists from the University of Colorado say that the state expects two hurricanes of at least the third category with gusts of wind over 178 km / h. There is a danger of landslides.
However, if the forecasts for the hurricane season, in general, differ little from previous years, much more specialists are concerned about the mixing of various weather phenomena in late summer and early autumn.
In place of the natural phenomenon under name El Nino (in the trans. - "little boy"), which led to various weather disasters in the Atlantic region, is La Niña ("little girl").
Moreover, La Niña promises even more violent weather in September-October this year. Warm weather, and 2015 was the hottest year in history, can contribute to tropical storms, and the warm Atlantic Ocean can transform them into hurricanes.
Reportedly, since 2005 - since Hurricane Wilma - there have been no major category 3 to 5 hurricanes on the US Atlantic coast. Georgia has not been at the center of the disaster for over a century, largely due to the short length of the coast.
The Forecast Center at the US National Weather Service estimates in 75% the likelihood that the La Niña phenomenon will make itself felt fully in the autumn and winter of this year.
