By Aaron Humes: The North Atlantic hurricane season, 2022, is not due to start for another two weeks.
But the National Hurricane Center (NHC) based in Miami, Florida usually begins issuing its four-times-a-day Tropical Weather Outlook on May 15 through the end of the season on November 30.
Today’s forecast reads: “For the North Atlantic…The Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico: Tropical cyclone formation is not expected during the next 5 days.”
The outlook describes significant areas of disturbed weather and their potential for tropical cyclone formation during the next five days from the time of issuance. The bulletin is delivered at two a.m., eight a.m., two p.m., and eight p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (two hours ahead of Belize time), which moves back an hour when daylight savings time ends on the last Sunday of October. Special bulletins are issued, usually in-between the regular bulletins at three-hour intervals, for updates on developing storms.
This year’s hurricane season, which begins on June 1, is expected to once again be above-average in terms of named storms, hurricanes, and major hurricanes (Category 3 and above).
