So...who are you going to believe.

Earlier this month I told you that Colorado State University is predicting a a total of 23 named storms during the upcoming hurricane season. Their forecast suggests that out of the 23 named storms, 11 are likely to develop into hurricanes, with five potentially reaching major hurricane status.

Now we have the University of Pennsylvania getting into the fray and they don't agree with Colorado State. They think it will be worse.

University of Pennsylvania scientists are predicting a whopping 33 named storms for 2024. With the season starting on June 1, the forecast ranges between 27 and 39 storms, many of which may escalate into hurricanes. Factors like Atlantic Sea Surface Temperatures and El Niño Southern Oscillation conditions play a significant role in hurricane development. If El Niño conditions neutralize later this year, we might see a slight drop in storm activity, ranging between 25-36 storms.

Of course it still boils down to the fact that the only hurricane you have to worry about is the one that affects you.
