“Extremely Active” 2024 hurricane season predicted

Colorado State University meteorologists are predicting an “extremely active” 2024 Atlantic hurricane season.

The scientists have predicted that there may be as many as 23 named storms during the 1st June to 30th November, 2024 season which is likely to produce very intense weather systems.

The unusually warm Atlantic Ocean temperatures being experienced during the El Niño climate phenomenon, coupled with the present transition to cooler La Niña conditions, are major factors driving these predictions.

Of the 23 named systems, 11 will likely develop into hurricanes while at least 5 will be severe.

The long-term average is 14 storms, 7 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes.

2024 is also unusual as never in the history of recording hurricanes has a forecast been issued as early as April. This, according to the Colorado State University meteorologists, suggests the highly volatile weather conditions which back their predictions.
