HOUSTONHurricane season this year is predicted to be an above-average and potentially intense one.

Colorado State’s 2024 hurricane forecast is calling for 23 named storms, 11 hurricanes and 5 major hurricanes. This is well above average for a typical year.

This forecast is being supported by several factors across the globe. First and foremost our sea surface temperatures are very warm. We have record-setting water temperatures in the eastern and central Atlantic. We have had an El Niño pattern, but the forecast is a transition to La Niña conditions.

This is also more favorable for above-average tropical development in regards to wind shear. Remember, regardless of how many storms are forecast and form, it only takes one storm to make a big impact.

An above normal season is expected. (Copyright 2024 by KPRC Click2Houston - All rights reserved.)

We are just over a month out from the official start of hurricane season on June 1. But before it begins, KPRC 2 wants to hear from you.

We want to know what information you would like to see before, during, and after a hurricane.

We have created a short survey to help us understand what information our viewers value and want to know during hurricane season.
