موسم الأعاصير الأطلسية

By Duncan Mil

March 28, 2024 - هيئة الأرصاد الأميركية AccuWeather تتوقع موسم أعاصير فوق المتوسط في العام 2024 في المحيط الأطلسي مع عدد شبه قياسي من 20 إلى 25 عاصفة وتأثيرات مباشرة في أجزاء من فلوريدا وتكساس وكارولينا.

“The 2024 Atlantic hurricane season is forecast to feature well above the historical average number of tropical storms, hurricanes, major hurricanes, and direct U.S. impacts,” said AccuWeather Lead Hurricane Forecaster Alex DaSilva. “All indications are pointing toward a very active and potentially explosive Atlantic hurricane season in 2024.”

In addition to the 20 to 25 named storms forecast, Accuweather predicts eight to 12 of those strengthening into hurricanes and four to six storms potentially directly impacting the United States.

With signs pointing to a super-charged hurricane season, DaSilva said 2024 could go down in the record books.

“There is a 10 to 15 percent chance of 30 or more named storms this year. Surpassing 30 would break the record set in 2020,” said DaSilva.

Last year, of 19 named storms, only four directly impacted the U.S. Hurricane Idalia, which hit Florida as a Category 3 storm in August.

Tropical Storm Harold soaked southern Texas in August. Tropical Storm Ophelia brought gusty wind and rough surf to North Carolina in September. Lee swiped the New England Coast as a tropical rainstorm before landfall in Nova Scotia.
