Get Ready For Another Busy Hurricane Season

The 2022 hurricane season is expected to be another busy one.
Weather researchers at Colorado State University are predicting an above-average hurricane season for the 7th consecutive year.
Forecasters are predicting 19 named storms in the Atlantic, at least four of which could become Category 3 storms or higher.
A typical hurricane season will see about 14 named storms. Last season saw 21, and 2020 saw an all-time record of 30.
Hurricane season runs from June 1st through Nov. 30th.
Why are hurricanes becoming so much more common? Do we need to adjust what a ‘typical’ hurricane season looks like?
