By BBN Staff: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is actually considering moving up the opening date of the Atlantic Hurricane Season to be earlier than usual, the Weather Channel reports.
That is because, in recent years, the first named storm of the season has occurred before June 1.
The Atlantic Basin Hurricane Season officially opens on June 1 and goes through to November 30th.
According to the report by the Weather Channel, the recommendation was made at an NOAA hurricane conference in December 2020.
“Considerations for the team would include a determination of the quantitative threshold for adding or removing dates from the official Atlantic hurricane season,” the official said.
Since 1965, the dates for the Atlantic Hurricane season have remained the same.
When Tropical Storm Arthur formed last year on May 16, it became the 6th consecutive year that a storm formed before June 1.
