NOAA's Climate Prediction Center on Thursday gave its forecast, calling for a below-normal hurricane season with a 90 percent degree of accuracy. It's the highest probability for a below-average season since NOAA began issuing seasonal forecasts in 1998.Thanks, El Nino. Looks like you've saved the day again.
Forecasters say El Nino has strengthened as predicted, while atmospheric conditions and cool ocean temperatures across the tropics aren't good for storm development.
NOAA expects six to 10 named storms, with one to four strengthening into hurricanes with top sustained winds of at least 74 mph.
