This spring, hurricane scientists at Colorado State University predicted an above-average 2018 Atlantic hurricane season in 2018. The researchers forecast 14 named storms. They said that of those 14 expected named tropical storms in the Atlantic, around seven will become hurricanes. Plus, they expect that three of the anticipated seven Atlantic hurricanes in 2018 will reach major hurricane strength. A major hurricane would include a Category 3, 4 or 5 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale. They expect three hurricanes in the Atlantic to achieve sustained winds of at least 111 mph this hurricane season.
They blame a low likelihood of a significant El Niño effect. NOAA also released its forecast. NOAA predicts a more active Atlantic hurricane season as well. They say there’s a 75 percent chance of above-normal or near-normal Atlantic hurricane season. They factored in current sea surface temperatures and seasonal wind speeds too.
