Slightly below-average activity predicted for 2019 hurricane season
A forecast team from Colorado State University has predicted a slightly below-average level of activity in the Atlantic basin this hurricane season. The CSU Tropical Meteorology Project says there will be an average of 13 named storms, with five of those storms developing into hurricanes in the Atlantic this season, which runs from June 1 through Nov. 30. Members are reminded to take the proper precautions and to remember that it takes only one landfall event nearby to make this an active season.
