2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook & Updates

Southeast US radar:


Editor's note: The Atlantic Hurricane season runs from June 1-November 30. Five-day Atlantic Hurricane forecasts in 2017 were as accurate as two-day forecasts in 1998 due to more powerful supercomputers.
In a NOAA video published May 24, 2018, Dr. Gerry Bell, lead seasonal hurricane forecaster at NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, and the rest of his team NOAA, predicted a 75 percent chance that the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, June 1 through November 30, will either be near-normal or above normal, and only a 25 percent chance of a below normal season which means we can expect a likely range of 10 to 16 named storms, of which 5 to 9 are expected to become hurricanes, of which 1 to 4 hurricanes are expected to become major hurricanes of Category 3 or higher. More information: Forecasters predict a near- or above-normal 2018 Atlantic hurricane season | noaa.gov.
