National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) recently released its 2014 Atlantic Hurricane season outlook and it is calling for a 50 percent chance of a below-normal season, a 40 percent chance of a near-normal season, and only a 10 percent chance of an above-normal season. NOAA’s predictions are based on the anticipated El Nino development this summer.1
Although it is predicted that the Atlantic coast will experience near-normal or below-normal hurricane season, it is best to be prepared for any category hurricane. June 1st is the official start of hurricane season and the National Weather Service (NWS) National Hurricane Center offers a plethora of resources to ensure your safety. SECOORA has a Marine Weather Portal for you to follow the predicted storm track when there is a watch/warning in effect.
