On May 20, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season outlook.

According to forecasters with NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center, the outlook predicts a 60% chance of an above-normal season, a 30% chance of a near-normal season and only a 10% chance of a below-normal season. However, experts do not anticipate the historic level of storm activity seen in 2020.

NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center is forecasting a likely range of 13 to 20 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which six to 10 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including three to five major hurricanes categories 3, 4 or 5 (with winds of 111 mph or higher) is expected. NOAA provides these ranges with a 70% confidence.

An average hurricane season produces 14 named storms, of which seven become hurricanes, including three major hurricanes.

The Atlantic and Central Pacific hurricane season runs from June 1 through Nov. 30. The Eastern Pacific hurricane season runs from May 15 to Nov. 30.
