WASHINGTON, D.C. – Summer doesn’t officially start for a few more weeks, but Memorial Day marks the unofficial beginning of summer weather and fun. But with summer comes the Atlantic Hurricane Season.
It starts Wednesday and ends on November 30th.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is predicting above-average hurricane activity this year.
They attribute that to higher than normal Atlantic temperatures and the ongoing La Niña, a pacific ocean climate pattern that can affect the whole globe.
If those forecasters are right, it would make 2022 the seventh straight above-average hurricane season.
The agency is expecting a likely range of 14 to 21 named storms, with six to 10 possibly becoming hurricanes.
