According to the National Hurricane Center, the Atlantic Basin should expect an “above normal” hurricane season with 11 to 17 named storms.

“The outlook reflects our expectation of a weak or non-existent El Nino, near- or above-average sea-surface temperatures across the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, and average or weaker-than-average vertical wind shear in that same region,” Gerry Bell, the lead hurricane forecaster with the Climate Prediction Center said in a release.
