Guy Carpenter Asia-Pacific Climate Impact Centre (GCACIC) Updates Its Forecasts for Number of Tropical Cyclones in South China and the Korea-Japan region
Guy Carpenter Asia-Pacific Climate Impact Centre has updated its forecasts for the number of tropical cyclones making landfall in South China and the Korea-Japan region. Earlier in the year, various climate centers predicted that neutral El Nino/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) conditions will prevail during the latter half of this year. The most current forecast models are suggesting that La Nina conditions would very likely occur for the remainder of this year.
With this new information, the prediction made in June now calls for a below-normal number of landfalling tropical cyclones along the South China coast for the main season.
