Super-charged hurricane season ahead weather experts predict; warn “stay vigilant”


Matthew 24:7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.

Important Takeaways:

  • Explosive Atlantic hurricane season predicted for 2024, AccuWeather experts warn
  • A super-charged hurricane season could spawn a near-record number of storms in the Atlantic this year, and forecasters may even run out of names for storms amid a frenzy of tropical systems.
  • There are signs that the first named system could spin up before the season kicks off as the calendar flips to June, a precursor of what’s to come.
  • “The 2024 Atlantic hurricane season is forecast to feature well above the historical average number of tropical storms, hurricanes, major hurricanes and direct U.S. impacts,”
  • Last hurricane season featured 19 named storms, but there were only four direct U.S. impacts. Hurricane Idalia was the storm of the year, which slammed into Florida as a powerful Category 3 hurricane in late August
  • All signs continue to point toward the upcoming season being worse than the last
  • Warm water is fuel for tropical systems, and there will be plenty of warm water for fledgling systems to tap into and strengthen.
  • Not only will this promote frequent development, but it will increase the potential for systems to undergo rapid intensification, a phenomenon that has occurred in recent years with historic hurricanes.
  • “The Texas coast, Florida Panhandle, South Florida and the Carolinas are at a higher-than-average risk of direct impacts this season,” DaSilva said.
  • While these four areas are at an elevated risk for a direct strike from a tropical system, residents near other coastal locations should remain vigilant.
