The Atlantic hurricane season is between June and November, but the peak season, when the majority of hurricanes hit, is between August and October. So, we’re right in the thick of it.
Last year, we saw a total of 30 named storms, with winds 39 mph or greater. Of these, 14 grew into hurricanes, with winds 74 mph or greater. Six of these hurricanes made landfall in the U.S.
And according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), this year will likely be another above-average season. They don’t expect it to be as intense as 2020, which broke historic records, but I think we all agree it’s hard to compete with the year we just had.
The NOAA is predicting 13-20 named storms this year. Of which, between 6-10 could turn into hurricanes.
