THE 2022 hurricane season could prove to be the seventh above-normal season in a row if this forecast is correct.
Dr Philip Klotzbach and his team at Colorado State University are predicting another 19 named storms this year. He expects there will be nine hurricanes and four major hurricanes.
In total, there have been 70 named storms over the past three years.
Klotzbach is a member of the CSU Tropical Weather and Climate Research team. In his findings, he details the main reason for this unprecedented streak of activity.
Marginal La Nina, or cooler than normal Pacific waters near the equator, and warmer than average waters in the Atlantic Ocean are the major factors for the rise in storms, according to Klotzbach.
His findings also suggest that there will be a well above normal chance of a hurricane hitting Florida and Georgia.
