Average to Above Average 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season

We are a few days away from the official opening of the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season. The outlook, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, shows some thirteen to nineteen storms, of which six to ten could become hurricanes and three to six major hurricanes which are of category three or higher.  N.O.A.A. forecasters say the outlook is based on competing climate factors, citing the absence of the weather pattern El Niño, which suppresses hurricane activity, along with warmer-than-average sea surface temperatures in the tropical Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. In this clip produced by the Weather Channel, the forecaster looks at what the prediction of a busy Hurricane may look like should the predictions come to pass.
