El Nino

NOAA

Forecasters now say we could be in for a more active hurricane season than they originally predicted. 

 

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says the El Niño weather pattern, which suppresses hurricane activity, has ended. That means it's more likely this hurricane season will be above normal.

 

Forecasters are now predicting 10 to 17 named storms this season. An average season has 12.
