An updated outlook on the 2015 Atlantic Hurricane Season has been released by The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA). This update calls for a 90 percent chance of a below-normal hurricane season, a change from the May prediction where the likelihood of a below-normal season was at 70 percent. NOAA’s update also lowered the overall expected storm activity for the season. NOAA’s updated outlook also includes a 70 percent chance of 6-10 named storms, of which 1-4 may become hurricanes, and 0-1 becoming a major hurricane.
Although these new predictions call for below-normal storm activity, we never know when a hurricane will set its “eye” on Florida. Lead seasonal hurricane forecaster with NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, Gerry Bell reminds, “tropical storms and hurricanes can and do strike the United States, even in below-normal seasons” and “people along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts should remain prepared and vigilant.” It only takes one storm to cause chaos.
The Atlantic hurricane season began June 1st
