Miami Herald cites UMaine data in article about upcoming hurricane season

In an article about the upcoming hurricane season, the Miami Herald cited calculations from the University of Maine Climate Change Institute’s Climate Reanalyzer showing that Sunday marked the highest sea surface temperature on record for the North Atlantic. Despite the warm water temperatures, which usually lead to more hurricane activity, this hurricane season has been relatively mild due to a mid-level layer of unusually dry air in the Atlantic, as well as a steady stream of Saharan dust blowing off the coast of Africa., the Charlotte Observer (Charlotte, North Carolina), News and Observer (Raleigh, North Carolina), Sun Herald (Biloxi, Mississippi), Sun News (Myrtle Beach, South Carolina) and other national outlets shared the Miami Herald report.
