Early predictions from Colorado State University, which issues seasonal hurricane forecasts each year, says this year is leaning toward a 65-percent chance of an above-normal 2021 season. The university will release its formal forecast on April 8.

Last year, the Atlantic season put up a record 30 named storms — requiring the use of the auxiliary Greek alphabet for the second time ever.

Hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30, but it’s never too early to be prepared.
