The Atlantic hurricane season started last week.
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is forecasting a near or above normal Atlantic hurricane season for 2018.
It was a very busy hurricane season last year with three major hurricanes, Harvey, Irma and Maria.
This season NOAA is predicting 10 to 16 named storms, 5 to 9 are expected to become hurricanes and 1 to 4 of them could become major hurricanes.
During an average hurricane season we get 12 named storms, six that become hurricanes, including three major hurricanes.
This year’s list of names starts with Alberto, which we’ve already had, and ends with William.
Currently there is no tropical activity in the Atlantic right now.
