Original Message After the relatively quiet start of the Atlantic hurricane season in the Atlantic, weather forecasters report that the peak months of the season have come and that high hurricane formation activity is expected. Writes about it Fox News.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, in its mid-season forecast, said the weather conditions for El Niño in the Pacific ended, which led to the creation of neutral conditions more favorable for the development of storms.

“El Nino usually suppresses hurricane activity in the Atlantic, but there’s a busy season ahead of us,” said Jerry Bell, lead forecastor for seasonal hurricanes at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

“This evolution, combined with more favorable conditions associated with the ongoing era of high activity of Atlantic hurricanes, which began in 1995, increases the likelihood of activity above normal this year,” Bell added.

NOAA weather forecasters expect 10-17 storms to be named, with 39 mph winds (about 63 km / h) or higher, of which 5-9 can increase to the level of a hurricane. Of these storms, there will be 2-4 major hurricanes that are classified as 3, 4 and 5 categories with 111 mph winds (approximately 180 km / h) and higher.
