NOAA: Confidence Is Very High For A Below Normal Hurricane Season

Few things are certain in our skies. But Thursday, Gerry Bell, lead forecaster from NOAA, says he is very confident in this year’s seasonal hurricane outlook.

Bell said, “The likelihood for a below normal season has jumped from 70% in May to 90% with today’s updated outlook.”

This is the highest level of confidence NOAA has ever had for a seasonal forecast since they started publishing them in 1998.
