“Throughout the hurricane season, experts from the NOAA They will work around the clock to provide early, accurate forecasts and warnings that communities in the path of storms can trust to stay informed.”

The increased activity anticipated for this Hurricane season is attributed to several climatic factors, including an ongoing La Niña that is likely to persist through the hurricane season, warmer-than-average sea surface temperatures in the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, weaker Atlantic tropical trade winds, and an increased West African monsoon.

An enhanced West African monsoon supports stronger East African waves, which generate many of the hurricanes stronger and longer lasting during most seasons. How climate change affects the strength and frequency of tropical cyclones is an ongoing area of ​​study for scientists at the NOAA.
