NOAA Revises Forecast For 2013 Hurricane Season

Three months ago, I reported NOAA had predicted a busier than usual hurricane season for 2013. Forecasters are revising their prediction downward for the Atlantic hurricane season.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued its revised forecast Thursday. They’ve trimmed back the number of hurricanes they expect this year to between six and nine.

The new forecast calls for three to five of those hurricanes to be major (winds greater than 110 mph).

They predict a 70 percent chance the season will still be busier than normal. The norm is 12 named storms, six hurricanes (three major).

Hurricane season continues ‘til the end of November. There have been four named storms So far. The new forecast predicts 13 to 19 named storms this year.
