Above average hurricane season predicted

Colorado State University has released its annual Hurricane Outlook for the 2024 Atlantic Hurricane Season which runs from June 1 to November 30.

This year, CSU is expected an above average number of storms.

The group expected 23 named storms, the average is 14. Of those storms, 11 are expected to become hurricanes, and five could become major hurricanes. A major hurricane is category three or greater.

Meteorologist Philip Klotzbach said via X, "One reason for the very active Atlantic hurricane season forecast from CSU is the significant potential for La Nina development. La Nina typically increases Atlantic hurricane activity via decreases in Caribbean/tropical Atlantic vertical wind shear."
