I’m Dan Kottlowski, senior meteorologist, and lead hurricane expert at AccuWeather. I’m predicting a more active than normal hurricane season for 2020. AMA about hurricanes and precautions to consider looking through a COVID-19 lens.
Hurricane season is officially underway and continues through the month of November. As AccuWeather’s lead hurricane expert, I’m seeing a more active than normal Atlantic hurricane season this year with 14-20 tropical storms, seven to 11 possible hurricanes and four to six major hurricanes becoming a Category 3 or higher. On Thursday, June 18 at 1pm Eastern, I’ll be available for an exclusive opportunity to answer your questions about this year’s hurricane forecast, and discuss how it compares to previous hurricane seasons and the heightened awareness around safety and preparedness this year when looking through a COVID-19 lens.
