14 Feb The first forecast for the 2019 hurricane season is out
Now is the time to order your impact windows and doors from Master Builders Windows!
The Colorado State University Tropical Meteorology Project has been forecasting hurricane activity in the Atlantic basin for 35 years. Each year, their skill develops further. Their forecasts are an important tool in tracking storms and giving you the ability to protect your family, your home and maybe even your business, nothing can offer the protection of professionally installed impact windows and doors from Boca Raton-based Master Builders Windows.
The first report issued by the CSU experts isn’t technically a “forecast.” As the researchers explained when releasing their findings, “We are providing a qualitative discussion of features likely to impact the 2019 Atlantic basin hurricane season rather than a specific number forecast. This outlook for 2019 will give our assessment of the probability of five potential scenarios for Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE).”
If you lived in Palm Beach or Broward Counties during the 2013, 2014 or 2015 hurricane season without the impact resistant windows and doors our Boca Raton based experts install, you may have caught a lucky break. However, if you didn’t have impact doors and windows on your Delray Beach house in the years since then, you probably found yourself wishing you did.
“The Atlantic had three quiet hurricane seasons from 2013-2015, followed by a slightly above-average season in 2016, near record-breaking levels of activity in 2017 and another slightly above-average season in 2018,” the CSU report says.
The question now is whether or not this active phase will continue into the 2019 season.
“Another big question for 2019 is how El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) will trend over the next few months. There is considerable model disagreement as to what the phase of ENSO will look like for the summer and fall of 2019,” the report says.
According to CSU’s calculations, at this early date there is already a 55% chance that we will experience above average hurricane activity during the upcoming season – which begins June 1.
Don’t push your luck! Don’t wait until it’s too late. Now is the time to call Master Builders Windows about installing hurricane windows and doors in your Pompano Beach home, hurricane doors on your Boca Raton business or impact windows in the Delray Beach home you love.
