Early Outlook for the 2024 Hurricane Season

StormGeo's forecasters take a look back at the 2023 hurricane season that ended with 20 named storms, including one unnamed subtropical storm that formed in January.  There were 7 hurricanes, 3 of which became intense hurricanes. The Azores-Bermuda high pressure center was weaker and located farther east than normal, which allowed for most of the storms to turn northward before reaching the Caribbean Sea.

StormGeo is anticipating a more active 2024 season in the Atlantic Basin and some of the factors that StormGeo's Hurricane and Long-Range Forecasters evaluated to determine this forecast include:

  • A return of La Nina
  • Atlantic water temperatures
  • Analog Seasons
