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.
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.
