Colorado State University, the gold standard for hurricane forecasts, released their 2021 Forecast and they are anticipating:
“The 2021 Atlantic basin hurricane season will have above-normal activity. Current weak La Niña conditions may transition to neutral ENSO by this summer/fall, but the odds of a significant El Niño seem unlikely. Sea surface temperatures averaged across the tropical Atlantic are currently near average, while subtropical Atlantic sea surface temperatures are warmer than normal. We anticipate an above-average probability for major hurricanes making landfall along the continental United States coastline and in the Caribbean.”
They forecast 17 named storms (vs. avg. of 12.1), 8 hurricanes (vs. avg. of 6.4), and 4 of them major hurricanes (vs. avg. of 2.7).
Digging into the details of their forecast they are saying that Palm Beach County has a 60% chance of a hurricane impact and Broward County a 59% chance.
Given the forecast and that the Hurricane Season starts in six weeks on June 1st, residential and commercial property owners should make plans now to safeguard your property.
