2012 Forecast: Above-Average
The updated forecast calls for a total of 13 named storms, 6 of which are expected to become hurricanes, including 3 major hurricanes (Category 3 or higher on the Safer-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale). These forecast numbers are generally near to slightly below the long-term average from 1950-2011 (12 named storms, 7 hurricanes, 3 major hurricanes) and below the averages for the current active era from 1995-2011 (15 named storms, 8 hurricanes, 4 major hurricanes).
Already this season we've seen 4 named storms, the first of which, Alberto, formed on May 19, a little less than two weeks before the official start of the season on June 1.

season (17 named storms, 9 hurricanes, 5 of Category
3 or higher).

high potential for at least one major hurricane to
directly impact the United States: the forecast indicates
an 81% chance of at least one major hurricane
striking the U.S. mainland (including a
of at least
one major hurricane strike on the East Coast of the
United States including the Florida peninsula, and
47% chance of at least one major hurricane
strike on the Gulf Coast of the United States from
The current series of busy seasons is part of a
long-term cycle that climatologists had predicted
years ago. The Atlantic is in its 11th year of heightened
activity. It is expected to "continue for the
the next decade or perhaps longer," said officials
with the National Weather Service last week.
