NOAA's 2007 Atlantic Hurricane Outlook
 

NOAA's Climate Prediction Center (CPC) works in close collaboration with NOAA's National Hurricane Center and the Hurricane Research Division to produce seasonal Atlantic hurricane outlooks and climate summaries of recent past hurricane seasons. The current atmospheric and oceanic conditions over the tropical North Atlantic are summarized in the links below.
