2017 Hurricane Predictions: Less Activity than 2016

CSU predictions are for a slighter lower than average season…

The meteorologists from Colorado State University are predicting active hurricane season than the previous year.  According to their experts Atlantic predictions are 11 named storms, 2 hurricanes (as opposed to 9 predicted for 2016), and only 2 intense hurricanes.  This is slightly below the 30 year  average of 12 named storms, 6.5 hurricanes,  and 2 intense hurricanes.

Though the official Atlantic hurricane season runs from June through November, occasionally we can see storms form outside those months, as happened last season with January’s Hurricane Alex and late May’s Tropical Storm Bonnie.

 Pronóstico 2017 de huracanes: menor actividad que el año 2016

La Universidad del Estado de Colorado pronostica una temporada por debajo de la media. . .

Los meteorólogos de la Universidad del Estado de Colorado pronostican una temporada activa a comparación del año anterior. De acuerdo a sus expertos, los pronósticos arrojan 11 tormentas con nombre, 2 huracanes  (contrario a los 9 estimados para el año 2016), y sólo 2 huracanes intensos. Esta proyección es un poco menor al promedio de 30 años de 12 tormentas con nombre, 6.5 huracanes y 2 intensos huracanes.

No obstante que la temporada de huracanes para el Atlántico corre de Junio a Noviembre, en ocasiones podemos ver  tormentas extra temporales, más allá de esos meses; tal como sucedió durante la temporada pasada en Enero con el huracán Alex y  la tormenta tropical Bonnie muy tarde en Mayo.
