2019's Hurricane Season Could Be Below Average
2019’s hurricane season, which runs until Nov. 30, will be slightly below-average with about 13 named storms and five hurricanes — two of which will be major, according to researchers with Colorado State University’s Tropical Meteorology Project. The slightly below-average forecast is likely to come as a relief after 2018’s above-average hurricane season. Last year, Hurricane Florence made landfall in North Carolina as a category 1 hurricane and caused extensive flooding across the region, and Hurricane Michael made landfall in the Florida Panhandle as a powerful category 4 hurricane.
