Future StartEdit

I think that we'll probably see a below average season for the first time since 2013. Probably a La Nina? I dunno, it's far out to tell. Any others? Hi!- 19:04, November 26, 2017 (UTC)

I'm thinking near-average for now. A potential La Nina could make the season less active, but it's too early to know for sure if a below-average season will occur. ~ Steve Talk PageMy Edits📧 00:43, November 27, 2017 (UTC)
I agree with you Steve. Its too early to make any prediction about the condition of the ENSO right now, and so to predict the season. A near average season looks likely, unless we get something like 2010. -- 13:15, November 27, 2017 (UTC)
I'd say near to below average. To be fair, I'm only interested in Hurricane Lane. SUPREME COLGATE CREW 14:48, November 27, 2017 (UTC)
This is going to be the EPac's 2013. The vertical wind shear will be extreme through most of the basin for the most of next season. This is going to be a re-2011 with not as many C4 storms, let alone if we see any C3s. TG My Birthday 21:07, November 27, 2017 (UTC)
Made the betting pools, click here. - Garfield
Ayo, check out my predictions under the "Strangest Storm" section for Lane. GO ON LANE, you're the only EPAC 2018 storm I'm actually looking forward to. (Or shall I call you Elaine, your full name?) SUPREME COLGATE CREW 20:06, December 2, 2017 (UTC)
Rarah, Elaine is not the full name. Lane is a male name. TG My Birthday 12:34, December 3, 2017 (UTC)
Lol, still gonna call Lane "Elaine the Pain", dis gun be gud. SUPREME COLGATE CREW 16:06, December 3, 2017 (UTC)
I feel this year could be similar to 2017 how it gets through a lot of names, but the storms are weak and ACE is fairly low. We'll see. - Garfield
Damn, I happen like the EPac a lot for its abundance of fishspinning majors. ~ KN2731 {talk} 14:41, January 4, 2018 (UTC)

Just got this from Storm2K:

"Who wants to answer the following question? Which names will be the big ones in the 2018 Eastern Pacific Hurricane Season? (Cat 3 or higher)

I will go with Daniel,Gilma,John,Miriam and Olivia.

Ditto. Same here."

Yeah, because those are the overrated names. I predict Lane will be one of the strongest to be honest. #TeamLane2018 D E S K R A A T I N G O 19:09, February 5, 2018 (UTC)

I would agree with Daniel, Gilma, and Olivia. Maybe add in Ileana or Kristy. I honestly just can't see the name Lane going to any strong, imo. TG 2018 21:57, February 5, 2018 (UTC)

Yeah, because of the hurricane tracker community's strong bias towards Daniel, Gilma and Olivia in that list finna smh fam. Why don't you see Lane become any strong? You have something against her? No, I predict Daniel, Fabio, Ileana and Lane to all peak as majors. SERIOUSLY, THIS WILL BE THE YEAR OF THE UNDERDOGS, I predict Gilma will be a flop TSD E S K R A A T I N G O 00:44, February 6, 2018 (UTC)

I don't think Lane will be that weak at all. #TeamLane2018 D E S K R A A T I N G O 00:46, February 6, 2018 (UTC)

Oh wait, and Kirsty and Bud as C2s. Also see Paul becoming a flop TS, shame on you Logan!

I predict:

TS Aletta
C2 Bud
TS Carlotta (weakest)
C3 Daniel
C1 Emilia
C3 Fabio
TS Gilma
C1 Hector
C4 Ileana
TS John
C2 Kristy
C4 Lane (strongest)
TS Miriam
TS Norman
TS Olivia
TS Paul D E S K R A A T I N G O 00:58, February 6, 2018 (UTC)

I know a guy named Lane who is a real moron, which is what I have against Lane. Every time I hear that name, it reminds me of that kid. TG 2018 01:55, February 7, 2018 (UTC)

hmmm why would you say that? was he a bully, or was he wasted all the time?? I can just think of an edgy alternative girl or a cute guy whenever that name is heard D E S K R A A T I N G O 02:52, February 7, 2018 (UTC)

He was a bully who threatened to stab me and several other kids. He also threatened to shoot up the school. TG 2018 21:24, February 7, 2018 (UTC)

You serious? oh my days... I bet he's in prison now, good thing you spoke the truth! I am so sorry to hear your experiences. D E S K R A A T I N G O 22:24, February 7, 2018 (UTC)

Wow... the Lane that you met must have had major issues. He may have been severely abused as a child, which could lead to that kind of behavior. Hopefully he is now in a group home or mental hospital, or he could even be in prison now. ~ Steve ❄ Talk PageMy Edits📧 00:57, February 8, 2018 (UTC)

Was just gonna say what Steve said but I was too frightened to. To add he might be sectioned. (I do know of a Lane at my uni but she comes from a country where English is not the first language (it's her nickname; her first language is French), that's why I didn't view it as that bad). D E S K R A A T I N G O 02:36, February 8, 2018 (UTC)
Anyway, even though the names are cute this year, I'm really missing the Legend Trio already (Jimena, Darby, Kenny). These three always so some crazy shit in the basin that they are the three most legendary names of all time (Jimena for always standing out from the rest of the majors, Darbasaur for always being a C3 and Kenny for always being a C4). I'll have to wait until I'm at least 22 to see them again :( Are there any names that always have strong tendencies on this year's list? D E S K R A A T I N G O 19:45, February 14, 2018 (UTC)
