Updated Atlantic hurricane season forecast released


Colorado State Universities Department of Atmospheric Science has released an August update to their Atlantic hurricane season forecast. The have upped their prediction for the number of hurricanes to nine (previously they had predicted eight). With the early start we’ve had to the season that’s not surprising.

The extra hurricane has been added to their prediction for intense storms with winds of over 111mph so they now predict we could see five of these monster storms. Seventeen named tropical storms are predicted.

They predict a 67% chance of at least one major storm hitting the U.S. coastline and an above average hurricane landfall risk for the Caribbean.
