Forecasters are anticipating another busy year for the Atlantic Basin in 2020. Led by Dan Kottlowksi, AccuWeather’s top hurricane expert, meteorologists this week released a 2020 Atlantic hurricane forecast. Kottlowksi’s team is calling for 14-18 tropical storms during this upcoming season, which runs from June 1 through Nov. 30. Of those storms, seven to nine are forecast to become hurricanes, and two to four are predicted to strengthen into major hurricanes.
“It’s going to be an above-normal season,” Kottlowski said. “On a normal year, we have around 12 storms, six hurricanes and roughly three major hurricanes.”
Tropical Storm Arthur
We already have our first named storm, Arthur, off the coast of North Carolina at this time. A tropical storm warning has just been issued and we are monitoring the situation. Any updates from the MOVE team will be posted on this site as well as on our Facebook Page.
