"Near Normal" Hurricane season predicted

NOAA has come out with their 2019 Atlantic Hurricane season forecast, and officials are calling for this year to be about as active as we usually see.

“The Atlantic hurricane season outlook calls for a near normal season, with a 70%chance of 9-15 named storms with top winds of at least 39 miles an hour,” officials said.

NOAA says between 4 and 8 of those storms will be hurricanes, 2-4 of which will be classified as major hurricanes. Earlier forecasts from Colorado State University called for 13 named storms, five hurricanes, with two of those being major storms.

The Atlantic hurricane season starts June first and runs through the end of November.
