The 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season officially kicked off on June 1 and had an early start. Arlene, the first named storm of the season formed before the official start date. Since then, Bret, Cindy, and Don have come and gone.
Now, a tropical wave that recently moved over the Cabo Verde Islands may develop into a tropical cyclone over time. It is moving westward at 10 to 15 mph and the National Hurricane Center believes somedevelopment of this system is
possible as it moves across the tropical Atlantic.
Experts believe this Atlantic Hurricane Season, which runs through to the end of November, will be a busy one. Dr. Phil Klotzbach and the experts at Colorado State University updated their seasonal outlook again on July 5, showing a much more active than normal season expected. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) also released their own forecast which shows this hurricane season to be likely more active than others.
