Hurricane season 2021 predictions, revealed
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released an update to its predictions for the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season, saying expectations are there will be an increased number of named storms and hurricanes to come.
- NOAA said it could be a busy year, though not one that would shatter records.
- Per NBC News, NOAA said back in May that there would be 13 to 20 storms for the season.
Why will it be a busy hurricane season?
- “A mix of competing oceanic and atmospheric conditions generally favor above-average activity for the remainder of the Atlantic hurricane season, including the potential return of La Nina in the months ahead,” said Matthew Rosencrans, lead seasonal hurricane forecaster at NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center.
