The CSU Tropical Meteorology Project Team (colostate.edu) has announced above-average predictions for the 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season, which runs from June 1 to November 30, 2021.
Of the 17 named storms they have predicted for this season, the Team expects eight to become hurricanes, and four to reach major hurricane strength (Saffir/Simpson category 3-4-5) with sustained winds of 111 miles per hour or greater.
Increased Probability of Major Hurricanes Making Landfall:
- 69% for the entire U.S. coastline (52% average for the last century)
- 45% for the U.S. East Coast including the Florida peninsula (31% average for the last century)
- 44% for the Gulf Coast from the Florida panhandle westward to Brownsville (30% average for the last century)
- 58% for the Caribbean (42% average for the last century)
