Winter of 2013-14 already tops 2012-13 for number of hurricane-force storms in North Atlantic
Description: Winter storms in the North Atlantic can whip up winds as strong as a hurricane. Some even undergo bombogenesis, a process of rapid intensification that can lead to especially dangerous winds and precipitation. Although each event is short-lived, the influence of repeated hurricane-strength storms (winds at least 74 mph) throughout the winter can leave a clear mark on wind patterns in the North Atlantic.
