Not the kind of news we want to hear heading into summer. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says they are expecting a slightly above-average hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin.
In its forecast released today, the NOAA says eleven to seventeen named storms are expected, five to nine of which are going to be hurricanes, and two to four that will become Category Three or higher hurricanes.
The Atlantic Basin comprises the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean. Hurricane season starts June 1st.
