North Carolina Hurricane Season Will Be Active, North Carolina State University Researchers

They predict the formation of 18 to 22 named storms in the Atlantic Basin, which includes the entire Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean Sea. The number of predicted named storms is higher than the short and long term averages, according to Lian Xie and his teams, himself a professor of marine, terrestrial and atmospheric sciences at North Carolina State University.
The long-term average (1951 to 2019) of named storms is 11, and the short-term average (1995 to 2019) is 14.

Of these named storms, eight to eleven could turn into hurricanes (the historic average is six per year), with the possibility that three of them will become major hurricanes.

Gulf of Mexico could experience a much more active hurricane season as Xie data indicates the probability that six to ten named storms will form in the region, two to five of which will become hurricanes, and one to two will become major hurricanes . Historical averages for the Gulf are three named storms and one hurricane each year.

Xie’s methodology evaluates more than 100 years of historical data on Atlantic Ocean hurricane positions and intensity, as well as other variables, including weather patterns and sea-surface temperatures, to predict how many storms will form in each ocean basin.

The hurricane season in the Atlantic runs from June 1 to November 30, in almost 2 weeks.

The names of storms to be assigned in 2020:

Arthur, Bertha, Cristobal, Dolly, Edouard, Fay, Gonzalo, Hanna, Isaias, Josephine, Kyle, Laura, Marco, Nana, Omar, Paulette, Rene, Sally, Teddy, Vicky, Wilfred

“Arthur” the first tropical storm of the year has just started in eastern Florida and is moving north. It will therefore not concern us.

SO WE'RE PREPARING AS SOON AS IT WILL BE POSSIBLE FOR THE CYCLONIC SEASON WHICH WILL SOON BEGIN !!
