Gulf of Mexico Hurricane Drought Likely to Become Longest in 130 Years

According to Jonathan Belles of WunderBlog, there have been no hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico since September 2013.  By the end of this week, this will be the longest streak with no Gulf hurricanes on record, dating back to the 1800s.  The last hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico was Hurricane Ingrid, which made landfall in northeast Mexico.  There have been a number of strong tropical storms, however.  So far the long-range weather forecast models do not show any tropical development for the next few days, so the streak should continue for at least the next few days.  You can read about it here.
