On this episode of Cut to the Chase:, Meteorologist Andrew Hagen from the National Hurricane Center, discusses this topic in detail.  One would think with warmer waters and more precipitation in the atmosphere, the answer would be quite obvious.    You might be surprised to see where the meteorologists think the answer will lie in the remaining part of the 21st Century.   Additionally in this episode, Andrew points out that the systems are not just all about wind, although the forecasts typically focus on wind.
