Rash of early storms sets record start
On Thursday, August 6, NOAA will issue its routine update to the Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook as the season enters its historical peak period of mid-August through October. NOAA’s lead hurricane season forecaster will host a media teleconference to discuss the conditions in the atmosphere and ocean that will likely influence the remainder of the hurricane season.
The 2020 hurricane season is already off to a record pace with nine named storms forming by July 30, the most ever recorded since the satellite era began in 1966. The hurricane season officially ends on Nov. 30.
