El Nino remains quiet this hurricane season

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

More than two months into hurricane season it's been a quiet season and experts expect that to continue.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association updated its Atlantic hurricane season forecast now predicting a 90-percent chance of below normal activity.

El Nino, warmer-than normal water temperatures in the Pacific Ocean remains strong and that could impact our weather for quite a while.

“When that occurs, it throws off meteorological events and so it will have an effect on our winter seasons,” said Chris Zelman, Meteorologist.

So far, we’ve only had three named storms and no hurricanes. Hurricane season runs through November.
