2017 Hurricane Season expected to be busy

Posted: Wednesday, May 31, 2017. 10:31 am CST.

By BBN Staff: On Thursday, June 1 the Atlantic Hurricane Season comes to an official start.

Forecasters are predicting it to be an above normal season this year.

According to forecasters from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the season is expected to experience five to nine hurricanes with two to four of them Category 3 (winds at least 111 mph) or stronger. The forecast calls for 11 to 17 tropical systems (winds a least 39 mph).

In April, Tropical Storm Arlene surprised us with a preseason storm and also indicated that the season would be an active one.

Ben Friedman of the NOAA center says that the season outlook predicts a range of storm activity in the entire six-month period across the Atlantic.

Today the National Meteorological Service of Belize will be having its first press briefing on the 2017 Atlantic Basin Hurricane Season Forecast and the launch of the office’s new website. The briefing will be held at the National Meteorological Service Conference Room at 2:00 p.m.
