“May 25, 2023: NOAA predicts a near-normal 2023 Atlantic hurricane season. El Nino, above-average Atlantic Ocean temperatures set the stage.
“NOAA forecasters with the Climate Prediction Center, a division of the National Weather Service, predict near-normal hurricane activity in the Atlantic this year. NOAA’s outlook for the 2023 Atlantic hurricane season, which goes from June 1 to November 30, predicts a 40% chance of a near-normal season, a 30% chance of an above-normal season and a 30% chance of a below-normal season.
“NOAA is forecasting a range of 12 to 17 total named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher). Of those, 5 to 9 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 1 to 4 major hurricanes (category 3, 4 or 5; with winds of 111 mph or higher). NOAA has a 70% confidence in these ranges.”
The U.S. Census Bureau produces timely local statistics that are critical to Emergency Management / Disasters, including planning, preparedness, and recovery efforts. Using publicly available and easy-to-use tools, such as OnTheMap for Emergency Management, Census Business Builder, and Community Resilience Estimates, the Census Bureau is able to supply hundreds of demographic and economic reports and maps to emergency planners and the public. Past hurricane reports can be found at Emergency Management Events: Hurricanes (2023 back to 2005).
