NOAA Atlantic Hurricane Season Forecast Predicts Exceptionally Active Storms

The warm waters of the tropical Atlantic in May 2005 prompted warnings about an active hurricane season ahead. A record 28 storms formed, including Hurricane Katrina.

Nearly two decades of global warming later, late spring ocean temperatures are cold compared to today’s record-breaking waters. Government forecasters on Thursday issued a seasonal forecast predicting storms could develop with frequency and ferocity comparable to some of the worst seasons in the past 19 years.
