The Atlantic hurricane season is upon us with the official start on June 1, and federal forecasters at NOAA have predicted another above-normal season with up to 20 named storms. Of those, up to 10 are forecast to become hurricanes. An average season has 14 named storms, of which seven are hurricanes.
While forecasters predict a 60% chance of an above-normal season, they do not anticipate the historic level of storm activity seen in 2020, which had 30 named storms. Also, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) released the 2021 tropical storm and hurricane name list from Ana to Wanda.
The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 through November 30.
