Weather experts predict “extremely active” 2024 Atlantic Hurricane Season 

Posted: Thursday, April 4, 2024. 2:14 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Researchers at Colorado State University are predicting that there could be 23 named storms this 2024 Atlantic Hurricane Season.

According to NBC, this is the highest April forecast that they have issued.

Forecasts say that this year’s Hurricane season could be “extreme” and even record breaking.

The weather experts at Colorado State University predict that there could be 11 hurricanes, five of which are expected to become Category 3, 4 or 5, meaning they’d have wind speeds of at least 111 mph. 

“This is the highest April forecast that we have put out,” Philip Klotzbach, a Colorado State meteorologist and Atlantic hurricane forecaster, said in a video news briefing. 

An average Atlantic hurricane season has 14 named storms, seven hurricanes and three major hurricanes (Category 3 or above).

In addition, forecasters believe that the main reasons for this could be above average are extreme levels of Atlantic Ocean heat and a seasonal switch to La Niña, a natural pattern of variability.

Ocean temperatures have been record-high for a year, which makes powerful storms more likely and can enable them to intensify more quickly. 

Weather experts say that an extremely active Hurricane season means that there could be extremely powerful hurricanes and even catastrophic ones.
