16 named storms, including eight hurricanes, are forecast for the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season, according to predictions released by Colorado State University. Four of the hurricanes will become major storms of Category 3 to 5, the projections indicate.

Sixteen named storms, including eight hurricanes, are forecast for the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season, according to early predictions released Thursday by experts at Colorado State University.

Four of the hurricanes will become major storms of Category 3 to 5, with sustained winds of at least 111 mph, the projections indicate for the season that runs from June 1 to November 30. The chance that at least one major hurricane will make landfall in 2020 along the US coastline is 69%, compared with an average over the last century of 52%, researchers said. There is a 95% chance -- the average is 84% -- that at least one hurricane this year will make landfall in the US.

African-American Man Dies After White Minneapolis Cop Cuts Off His Airway Stanley Ho, Hong Kong billionaire and Macao's 'godfather of gambling,' dies at 98 With restaurants unable to buy their lambs, Utah farmers find new ways to get meat to those hungry for it

What it's like riding out Hurricane Maria 01:29"The last season with four or more major hurricanes was the record damage-causing year of 2017 that saw Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria," CNN meteorologist Brandon Miller said."All caused significant damage in the US and Caribbean." Six major hurricanes formed that year in the Atlantic basin. The seasonal average is 12 named storms, including six hurricanes. Read MoreThe forecasts do not precisely predict where the storms might strike, and the probability of landfall for any single location is low."Coastal residents are reminded that it only takes one hurricane making landfall to make it an active season for them," researchers Philip Klotzbach, Michael M. Bell and Jhordanne Jones wrote in the report.Confident in their forecastThe above-normal activity was predicted consistently across types of forecasts, Klotzbach said."This year, we used four different techniques to develop our forecast," he told CNN Weather."And they all point towards an active season."Colorado State in its April predictions hasn't forecast four major hurricanes for a season since 2013 -- a year that didn't quite perform as the early forecast expected."I'd say that this year, we're pretty confident," Klotzbach said, citing a lack of El Niño conditions that can mess with expectations. When El Niño is present, it reduces Atlantic hurricane activity due to increased vertical wind shear -- changes in wind speed and direction with height that prevent hurricanes from building. Average conditions create a more favorable environment for tropical storm development.The latest #ElNino model prediction plume has the majority of models predicting ENSO-neutral conditions for peak Atlantic #hurricane season (August-October). Very few models call for #ElNino. El Nino typically reduces Atlantic hurricane activity via increased wind shear. pic.twitter.com/DMORw4ZXqq

— Philip Klotzbach (@philklotzbach) March 19, 2020 "Also, the tropical Atlantic is quite a bit warmer than it has been the past few years at this time," Klotzbach said.Sea surface temperatures are one of the ingredients needed to fuel hurricanes. The warmer the ocean, the more fuel available for the storms to tap into.Although four major hurricanes are forecast this season, that doesn't mean any necessarily will hit the US coast."Two of the last three years have had major hurricane landfalls in the US (2017 and 2018)," Miller said."Before that, there was a 12-year drought without a single major hurricane landfall anywhere in the country (from Hurricane Wilma in 2005 to Hurricane Harvey in 2017).""The last major hurricane to strike the US was Hurricane Michael in 2018," he said. Forecasting this far in advance can be accurateThe models are based on 40 years of data and conditions, including sea surface temperatures, sea level pressures, vertical wind shear levels and El Niño.April is about the earliest experts can get a good indication of what conditions will be like during the hurricane season.

For sure one of the hurricanes that will form will be named CORONA VIRUS 😱😱 Oh, great, that's just we all need.... Pls am i need someone to help me with little fund to buy foodstuff I don't have any money at bank or at hand during to the lock down. Pls am into charging of phone business am unable to go out and do my business pls help me with fund. My account detail is 0694241031 access bank.

That might be Gods punishment for stealing masks Wey ya It's not getting any better! Dude my town already got torn apart from a tornado and as the town started rebuilding their houses and businesses the fuckin coronavirus broke out, why tf is earth wilin' so bad The hits just keep on coming QuotedReplies

JoshLingelbach I quit 2020 This may very well happen, but the weathermen/women have trouble accurately predicting 2 days out. Can you please STOP spreading fear !!! 😡 CNN and more scaring the public. omg!!! 🥶😰 wat happened to the world now... plssss we need more prayers to heal the world, and to all the people who infected of coronavirus, and for us being affected for lockdown globally, God,bless us all... Amen.. 🙏🙏

Maybe Trump has a solution... Somehow the Democrats will find a way to blame this on Trump awesome 2020 needs fast track. Please prepare soon and get protected For God has not given us the spirit of fear. But of love, power and of a sound mind. And you thought this was a good time to share this... Godzilla is next.

Like people are not panicking enough already because of this pandemic, you had to freak people out more with your hurricane season predictions YALL MADE MEMES AS IF YOU WERENT TESTING THE LORD It had to be above normal didnt it..... no shit Looks perverted Find a way to blame your President. That’s what you do best.

More fake news from the world wide leader in fake news CNN!!! Wake me up when 2020 ends please Let's see how Trump handles this and who he blames when the next hurricane hits America during everything else. Maybe he will finally melt down in his brain will explode, oh wait he has to have a brain for that to happen!

oh, that would really cause Coronavirus to spread. Thanks. We don't need to worry about that. We have quit the ParisClimate . CNN sucks Oh great just what we need What. The. Fuck. The history of hurricane predictions is a joke. Let me guess it’s Trumps fault? Of course.... right on cue...A time machine would come in super handy right about now 😑

2020 SMH See how the CNN coverage compares against other news outlets on Ground News hurricane Coronavirus naturaldisasters Environment Medical Of course! Perhaos if we all just cry 'uncle' really loud... Ready. The. Nukes. Anyone want to just come and punch me in the nuts repeatedly We should name them corona, witch-hunt, Obama and Hillary, cause that’s what trump will blame.

Shut up. Go look for the Malaysian Airlines plane in the black hole. We can't even accurately predict where a known storm that's 500 miles off a coast will make landfall. But sure, 4 Major storms coming this summer.... If this turns out to be right it'll be pure luck. Because of course Yikes Maybe we need to cancel the hurricane season this year

SimonNimes 🙈 ... Tired When will we get the memo that God hates Florida? Ron Destanis, will have Floridians wait to protect themselves. Until the winds are 95 mph. That is about the equivalent to what he's done with this virus. Chill out folks. Its CNN reporting it. Its fake Whew...I was nervous there for a second when I saw that headline. Then I saw it was CNN reporting it. I feel much better now. I was scared there for a second

Fuckin super! Thia year will be one to remember CNN is like a bad X girlfriend, always loves the drama May I suggest hiding all Sharpies in the White House? Lo que nos faltaba 😫 BIOLOGICAL WARFARE TECHNOLOGICAL WARFARE WEATHER MANIPULATION COLLAPSING ECONOMIES WHAT ELSE? Massive Coincidences happening right now.

Gel anam gel 😂 CNN. Stir up the fear. Good job 👏🏼 Yay 2020 Looks like a severe storm brewing. Is it 2021 yet Oh good Not now Mother Nature you already stuck us w/ this Virus 🦠... time to shift fear mongering paths for a few! Ok. We need to start taking this shit seriously. Can somebody please sacrifice a virgin into a volcano?!?!

Can wind and rain blow away the Corona virus? Asking for a friend in the White House Lmao just shut up with your doom and gloom bullschitt. Sure cause why not? Sorry, were going to need to cancel hurricane season, cant have people crammed together in shelters -God The USS Roosevelt was treated as an urban cure. Divided into many small areas on the boat, do not communicate, put on a mask. Eat completely cooked hot food. If the soldier has any symptoms, take the medicine you recommend first. If necessary, contact Taiwan.
