Hurricanes are traveling more slowly - which makes them even more dangerous

By plugging storm data into computer models representing a future with temperatures that are up to five degrees warmer, they found that these cyclones moved 9 percent slower and were far, far wetter.
NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) scientist Dr. Jim Kossin, author of the study, found a 20 percent slowdown in a storm's forward velocity over land for Atlantic storms, a 30 percent slowdown over land for western North Pacific storms and a 19 percent slowdown over land for storms affecting the Australian region. Instead, it means the tracks of the storms have slowed, allowing them to hover in one location for longer periods of time.
Slower-moving storms mean greater rainfall totals, as seen with Hurricane Harvey in Texas a year ago.
Hurricane Harvey, which progressed at a walking pace over eastern Texas after making landfall in late August, dumped rain in amounts that were a record from a tropical system in the United States: more than 60 inches.
This analysis stopped at the end of 2016 and did not include any storms that formed in 2017, so Harvey was not factored in to the study.
These two trends ought to work in tandem to make today's storms much worse rainmakers.
