NOAA Predicts Above Average Hurricane Season For 2022
Weather Forecasters at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have predicted an above-average hurricane activity this year — which would make it the seventh consecutive above-average hurricane season.
For the 2022 hurricane season, NOAA is forecasting a likely range of 14 to 21 named storms of which 6 to 10 could become hurricanes including 3 to 6 major hurricanes.

The Atlantic season, which extends from June 1 to November 30, has experienced a growing number of destructive and rapidly intensifying hurricanes over the past several decades, which scientists have linked to higher ocean temperatures from human-caused climate change.
