Findings on the latest projections for the open ocean hurricane season, with a focus on the Atlantic. A sampling of the powerful tropical systems that have made landfall in the United States, each year and how the hurricane season evolved through history. Over the past 80 years, the United States has been struck by an average of seven hurricanes in an Atlantic hurricane season. It’s not statistically more likely for a US landfall to occur in an open ocean hurricane season, but having come close on four occasions, this could be considered an important statistic for planners and emergency management people. Meteorologists observed a shift in the Atlantic’s tropical pattern, which can now support potentially significant storm activity – especially in the hurricane season that begins this month and runs until November, but the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season remains vulnerable.
