Hurricane Season:  Beginning June 1 a new hurricane season will be upon us. Forecasters are predicting an above-average probability of a major hurricane making landfall in the United States this year. Researchers at Colorado State University recently released their annual forecast for the 2020 hurricane season running from June 1 through November 30. According to their predictions for 2020, predications are that there will be 16 named tropical storms with eight reaching hurricane force. The Colorado State forecasters predict four of those storms could reach major storm status. That means sustained winds of at least 111 miles per hour are predicted. A major hurricane constitutes a Category 3 or higher on the, widely accepted,  Saffir-Simpson Scale. The experts at Colorado State University say there is a 69 percent chance that at least one major hurricane will make landfall in the U.S. this year. So, what about predictions for our area? These same experts predict the Gulf Coast - from the Florida Panhandle westward to Brownsville in Texas – has a 44 percent chance of being struck by a major hurricane. The 50-year average is 30 percent.
