We’re only two weeks away from the start of hurricane season and thanks to El Nino, Hawaii could see another active storm season this year.

Palm trees and warning flags are blown by strong winds brought by the arrival of Hurricane Paloma in George Town, Grand Cayman, Friday, Nov. 7, 2008. Late-season Hurricane Paloma's center was expected to pass near Grand Cayman late Friday or early Saturday, then gain strength as it moves toward Cuba which is already suffering from billions of dollars in damage from two previous hurricanes this season.

The 2015 Central Pacific Hurricane Season runs from June 1 through Nov. 30.

There is a good relation of El Nino years to increased hurricane activity.

The average number of tropical depressions, tropical storms and hurricanes is about four to five per year.

But when you look at El Nino years, in some cases, the number of storms has doubled. For example:1982: 10 with a direct hit from Hurricane Iwa ; 1992: 11 with a direct hit from Hurricane Iniki.

We’ve gone through seasons with a high number of storms and no direct hits, such as 11 in 1994 and seven in 2009.

Then last year, which was a weak El Nino year, there were five storm systems with Tropical Storm Iselle hitting the southern tip of the Big Island.

El Nino causes warmer temperatures in the Pacific northern hemisphere and warm water makes storms spawn and survive.

Even last year with a weak El Nino, 22 systems were born in the East Pacific, the fourth highest on record.

According to the Climate Prediction Center, there is a 90-percent chance that El Nino will continue through this summer and an 80-percent chance through next year.

It won’t mean that we will get a direct hit, only that there is a higher chance of tropical cyclone formation for this hurricane season.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration meteorologists have some upgrades that will help with their forecasts.

New features added in January will increase resolution and pick up smaller features on the radar that normally aren’t seen. This will be the first time they will be used during hurricane season.

That means meteorologists can see more on their models and, in turn, lead to more accurate forecasts.

“The computer models that we use to forecast the weather can see smaller-scale features and because they can better analyze those features, it improves the long-term forecasting,” said meteorologist John Bravender. “So the increased computer resources helps to improve the computer models which will in turn lead to a better forecast.”

Bravender says the new upgrade should also help better track a storm’s path.

Forecasters say now is the time to prepare your emergency kits for this upcoming hurricane season.

The Central Pacific Hurricane Forecast will be released May 26.

About Earth Changes Media w/ Mitch Battros

Mitch Battros is a scientific journalist who is highly respected in both the scientific and spiritual communities due to his unique ability to bridge the gap between modern science and ancient text. Founded in 1995 – Earth Changes TV was born with Battros as its creator and chief editor for his syndicated television show. In 2003, he switched to a weekly radio show as Earth Changes Media. ECM quickly found its way in becoming a top source for news and discoveries in the scientific fields of astrophysics, space weather, earth science, and ancient text. Seeing the need to venture beyond the Sun-Earth connection, in 2016 Battros advanced his studies which incorporates our galaxy Milky Way - and its seemingly rhythmic cycles directly connected to our Solar System, Sun, and Earth driven by the source of charged particles such as galactic cosmic rays, gamma rays, and solar rays. Now, "Science Of Cycles" is the vehicle which brings the latest cutting-edge discoveries confirming his published Equation.
