The government forecasters say very warm water temperatures and a transition from the current El Niño weather pattern to a La Niña pattern later this year will likely enhance the number of tropical storms and hurricanes that form in the Atlantic hurricane basin. Reduced Atlantic trade winds and less wind shear are also factors that favor tropical storm formation, the NOAA said.
