Posted: Friday, May 24, 2019. 5:02 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has forecasted the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season to be ‘near-average’.

The NOAA outlook was released yesterday and forecasts a 40% chance of a near-normal season, a 30% chance of an above-normal season and a 30% chance of a below-normal season.

The Atlantic hurricane season officially extends from June 1 to November 30.

In addition, NOAA predicts a range of 9 to 15 named storms of which 4 to 8 could become hurricanes and 2 to 4 becoming major hurricanes.

NOAA provides these ranges with a 70% confidence.

An average hurricane season produces 12 named storms, of which 6 become hurricanes, including 3 major hurricanes.

In April, the Colorado State University released an outlook predicting 13 named storms and 5 hurricanes.

In 2018, 15 named storms, eight hurricanes, and two major hurricanes tore through the Atlantic Basin.
