Maryland’s 2020 hurricane season is predicted to be a rough one
As if the coronavirus was not enough, we are coming up on hurricane season 2020, June 1- November 30, and it is potentially going to be a tough one for the East coast. The 2020 hurricane season could produce 16 named storms for the Atlantic Coast, which is four more named storms than the average.
Colorado State University meteorologists are predicting that the 2020 hurricane season will be 140% of the average hurricane season. The team is predicting eight of the 16 storms will become hurricanes and four of the storms could become Category 3-5 storms and produce winds of 111 miles per hour.
The April forecast for hurricane season 2020 may seem a bit early but basing their predictions on over 50 years of data, has proven them well. The team from Colorado State will provide updates to their predictions as the season moves along and let us hope that there is a change for the better. I think I can speak for everyone in Southern Maryland, and across the Atlantic seaboard for that matter, when I say we would like a nice, calm, and uneventful remainder of 2020. The updates will be published on June 4, July 7 and August 6… keeping our fingers crossed.
