The National Hurricane Center has issued its first official two-day Tropical Weather Outlook for the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane season

And so it begins… the Atlantic Hurricane season!

The National Hurricane Center has issued its first official two-day Tropical Weather Outlook for the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane season – read in full below.

A broad area of low pressure accompanied by cloudiness and showers is centered near the west coast of the Yucatan Peninsula.

The low is forecast to move westward to west-northwestward over the southern Bay of Campeche during the weekend and near the east coast of Mexico early next week.

Gradual development of this system is possible as long as it remains over water, and a tropical depression could form early next week.

Regardless of development, the disturbance will likely produce heavy rainfall over portions of southern and southeastern Mexico during the next few days.

  • Formation chance through 48 hours…low…30 percent.
  • Formation chance through 5 days…medium…40 percent.

Today marks the first day of the Atlantic hurricane season, which will run until November 30.

Four MAJOR Hurricanes could develop. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) revealed yesterday.

NOAA predicts nine to fifteen storms, which includes four to eight Hurricanes, which will form and develop in the Atlantic Ocean during this year’s season.

Two to four of those Hurricanes are expected to grow into major Hurricanes, which tend to be Category 3, 4 and 5.

NOAA believes the storms will cause around fifty billion dollars in damage. Hurricane season officially begins 1st June.

On Wednesday, NOAA revealed a seventy per cent chance for an above-normal Pacific Hurricane season, citing above-average ocean temperatures and weaker-than-average vertical wind shear.

Five to eight Tropical Cyclones are predicted to develop in the Pacific Ocean, which includes Tropical Depressions, named storms and Hurricanes.

However, experts believe this forecast isn’t certain. The Houston Chronicle produced an excellent article on this particular subject, read here.
