Early hurricane season outlook: Above average activity expected in Atlantic

Early hurricane season outlook: Above average activity expected in Atlantic Early hurricane season outlook: Above average activity expected in Atlantic
Bennie Garza | 05 April, 2018, 21:12

A total of 14 named storms, seven hurricanes and three major hurricanes are expected this season.

One of the premier hurricane experts, Dr. Philip Klotzbach of Colorado State University, has released his group's first forecast for the upcoming 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season.

Unusually warm waters in the western tropical Atlantic contributed to the forecast for an above-average season as hurricanes form more easily in warm conditions. By comparison, 2017's hurricane activity was about 245 percent of the average season.

It may seem like we just said goodbye to Harvey, Irma, and Maria, but the new hurricane season is near its official start of June 1. While those numbers are slightly above historical averages, they are less than a year ago.

The average season has about 12 named storms with about six hurricanes - with winds of 74 miles per hour or higher - two them major. More than 100 people died as a result of major storms a year ago and the events caused an estimated $200 billion in damage, according to figures from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
