Researchers are predicting an “above-average” 2021 Atlantic hurricane season, with 17 named storms and eight hurricanes.
Of those eight hurricanes, four are expected to be major, according to the Colorado State University Tropical Meteorology Project.
Dr. Philip Klotzbach, hurricane specialist at CSU, presented the forecast Thursday during the National Tropical Weather Conference.
Klotzbach said the primary reason for the above-average forecast is based on a predicted lack of El Niño and a warmer than normal subtropical Atlantic.
The hurricane season begins June 1 and ends November 30.
