The 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season could be as busy as the previous season. This is what experts are predicting. The season begins on June 1 and Colorado State University is predicting a slightly higher than normal hurricane season. A total of 14 named storms, seven hurricanes and three major hurricanes are expected this season. 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 April’s Tropical Storm Arlene. Although hurricane season in the Atlantic starts June 1, the majority of storms occur between mid-August and mid-October, meaning this prediction is coming four months before the bulk of hurricane activity. As the season nears, more predictions are expected to be published.
