Atlantic Hurricane Season starts on June 1st and ends on November 30th. Eastern Pacific Hurricane Season begins May 15th and also ends November 30th
NOAA forecasters with the Climate Prediction Center, a division of the National Weather Service, predict near-normal hurricane activity in the Atlantic this year. NOAA’s outlook for the 2023 Atlantic hurricane season, which goes from June 1 to November 30, predicts a 40% chance of a near-normal season, a 30% chance of an above-normal season and a 30% chance of a below-normal season.
NOAA is forecasting a range of 12 to 17 total named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher). Of those, 5 to 9 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 1 to 4 major hurricanes (category 3, 4 or 5; with winds of 111 mph or higher). NOAA has a 70% confidence in these ranges.
August through October is the peak of the hurricane season in Florida when most activity is seen and when 96 percent of the major hurricane days occur, according to NOAA. However, mid-September is generally more active in regard to tropical storms.
