Good day to bring this up: Hurricane outlooks do not show when/where one would strike. It only takes one to go under that wind shear "soft spot" & fueled by warmer than average sea surface temps-- a storm rapidly intensifies, bring heavier downpours & higher storm surge. pic.twitter.com/T3ZJeKC4xk— Irene Sans (@IreneSans) May 23, 2019
NOAA officials emphasized the fact that an average season is still "a lot of storms".
This is the list of names for the 2019 Atlantic #Hurricane Season. @NOAA releases the forecast for this season later today! Remember regardless of forecast activity, it ONLY TAKES ONE storm to make it an active season for you. #HurricaneOutlook pic.twitter.com/vVpYackfio— Irene Sans (@IreneSans) May 23, 2019
