Experts Have Released New Hurricane Predictions For The East Coast This Season

There’s good news on the horizon if you live on the East Coast – this year’s hurricane season could be milder than usual.

That’s according to the latest predictions from NOAA, the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration. They’re predicting a less active hurricane season, which is a sunnier forecast than the group initially predicted back in May.

This past spring, NOAA forecasted a 25 percent chance of a “below-normal” Atlantic hurricane season. Now, they’re saying that the East Coast has a 60 percent chance of a below-normal season and a slim 10 percent chance of an above-normal season.

The agency is predicting nine to 13 named storms, four to seven hurricanes, and zero to two major hurricanes.

The Atlantic hurricane season started around mid-August and will end on November 30. Here’s hoping we all keep safe and dry in the meantime!
