NOAA predicts above-normal Atlantic hurricane season


NOAA National Weather Service forecasters at the Climate Prediction Center predict above-normal hurricane activity in the Atlantic basin this year.


NOAA’s outlook for the 2024 Atlantic hurricane season predicts an 85% chance of an above-normal season, a 10% chance of a near-normal season and a 5% chance of a below-normal season.


Hurricane season spans from June 1 to November 30.


NOAA is forecasting a range of 17 to 25 total named storms. Of those, 8 to 13 are forecast to become hurricanes, including 4 to 7 major hurricanes.


The reasoning for the active prediction includes factors such as La Nina and warmer-than-average ocean temperatures.
