Forecasters at America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Climate Prediction Center are predicting above-average hurricane for 2022.
NOAA’s outlook for the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season predicts a 65% chance of an above-normal season, a 25% chance of a near-normal season and a 10% chance of a below-normal season.
NOAA provides these ranges with a 70% confidence.
“Early preparation and understanding your risk is key to being hurricane resilient and climate-ready,” said Secretary of Commerce Gina M. Raimondo.
“Throughout the hurricane season, NOAA experts will work around-the-clock to provide early and accurate forecasts and warnings that communities in the path of storms can depend on to stay informed.”
On Sunday, Tropical Storm Alex became the first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season.
At the time of this publication, the tropical storm is located approximately 635 miles west-southwest of Bermuda and has sustained winds of 50 miles per hour.
