While it is much too early to have confidence in storm tracks, the global pattern appears to favour a slight eastward shift in the dominant storm track which should result in fewer storms in the western Gulf of Mexico than we have seen in recent years, but more storms tracking near the U.S. east coast. That track would also mean a slightly higher risk for eastern Canada to be impacted by the remnants of a tropical storm or hurricane.

Warmer-than-normal sea surface temperatures near the east coast of Canada and the U.S. also heightens the risk for storms to strengthen or maintain their intensity as they approach the coastline.
