Nearing the End of the 2023 Hurricane Season (Part Two)
Previously, we began to discuss what has happened so far in the 2023 Atlantic Hurricane Season. We talked about how the season has surpassed expectations in activity, with the National Hurricane Center reporting a 33% above average season compared to the long term mean. While this is the case, 2023 has not surpassed the 2021 and 2020 season. In this second part, we will be looking towards the near future as we discuss what upcoming events look like as we prepare to close out this year’s hurricane season!
One of the biggest factors coming to this point of the season is the El Nino climate phenomenon, which simply put is a good deal for all of us. El Nino tends to create wind patterns in the Atlantic that are less favorable for the development and the intensification of hurricanes, meaning less storms and the ones that do form are less intensive.
Although the odds of a hurricane have diminished, it is important to stay alert in case nature does find a way. This means retaining emergency contacts and supplies, along with staying updated with your local weather service to see what is coming to your area.
