Welcome to Hurricane Season 2018

By: Ali Ventura / June 1, 2018

Today June 1, 2018 officially marks the first day of hurricane season which runs from now until November 30th.

Major Events from 2017:

  • 17 named storms, five of them reaching major hurricane (Category 3 or above status)
  • Tropical Storm Arlene formed on April 19th, about a month and a half before the beginning of the hurricane season
  • Last year was an above-average hurricane season and the seventh-most active on record
  • Major hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria are estimated to have caused more than $280 billion in damages
  • For four days Hurricane Harvey dumped over 60 inches of rain over southeastern Texas

What is the current projection for the 2018 hurricane season?

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), their Climate Prediction Center is “forecasting a 75-percent chance that the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season will be near or above normal. The possibility of a weak El Nino developing, along with near-average sea surface temperatures across the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, are two of the factors driving this outlook.” This is the prediction until NOAA updates the seasonal outlook in early August, just prior to the peak of the hurricane season.
