The tropics are quiet right now, but that’s not likely to last. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has updated its seasonal hurricane forecast, and it’s no surprise that it calls for a very busy remainder of the 2020 Atlantic season. NOAA’s new projections are for 19 to 25 named storms (tropical storms and hurricanes), 7 to 11 hurricanes, and 3 to 6 major hurricanes (category 3 and above). Very warm sea surface temperatures, reduced wind shear, weaker Atlantic trade winds, and a developing La Nina in the Pacific are the factors that are expected to make this hurricane season so active. So far, we’ve seen 9 named storms and 2 hurricanes. And if you’re wondering, we switch to the Greek alphabet (as we had to do in 2005) if we end up with more named storms than names on the annual list.
