Posted: Updated:

NOAA is predicting a busy 2013 Atlantic hurricane season.  The outlook calls for 13-20 named or tropical storms, 7-11 hurricanes with winds over 74 mph and 3-6 major storms over 111 mph winds.

An average season calls for 12 tropical storms, 6 hurricanes and 3 major ones.

The reason for the above average outlook is that El Nino is not expected, the tropical waters are quite warm and the continuation of the west African monsoon or climatogical storm period.
