Another Active Hurricane Season Expected in 2013

With the start of the Atlantic hurricane season only two weeks away, experts across the board are predicting another active season. Today, AccuWeather.com released its findings calling for 16 named tropical storms, eight hurricanes and four major hurricanes. They expect three hurricanes to make landfall in the United States. These numbers are all slight increases over the average numbers recorded by NOAA from 1981-2010 and are comparable to last year’s activity.

According to AccuWeather, the season should begin quickly after June 1, but isn’t anticipated to start as early as 2012 when two named storms appeared in May. However, 2013 could see stronger storms than last year due to the reduced amount of Saharan dust in the air, which can inhibit a storm’s severity.
