June is here!
June is the start of meteorological summer (June, July & August) and it’s the start of the Atlantic Hurricane Season.
This year’s official hurricane forecast, issued by Philip J. Klotzbach and William M. Gray of Colorado State University, calls for a quiet season. They are expecting below average activity, compared with the 1981-2010 climatology.
Even though it's expected to be a below average hurricane season, it's important to note that it only takes one storm to cause a lot of damage.
Reasons for the below average season:
- Developing El Nino
- Cooler than average Atlantic Ocean
Official Atlantic Hurricane Forecast for 2014:
Named storms: 9
Major Hurricanes: 1
