Experts Predict Very Active 2016 Hurricane Season

What Are Experts Predicting For The 2016 Atlantic Hurricane Season?
It seems like both 2016 and 2017 will hold a great number of storms for us, both in America and worldwide. With so many storms predicted for these upcoming years, it is imperative to have hurricane shutters and storm protection on your home.

The predictions for this year’s hurricane seasons are the highest they’ve been in about 4 years, so it really is important to make sure your home has storm protection and hurricane shutters to keep you and your family safe from the storms.

Besides being the strongest in 4 years, there will also be more hurricane landfalls in America since the 11 back in 2004 and 2005, and we don’t need to be reminded of the destruction we faced back then.

GWO’s Hurricane Season Predictions
Global Weather Oscillations (GWO) has been the most accurate information providers on predictions over the past 7 years, so they have become the most trusted source of tropical storm and hurricane predictions. Their hot spot predictions (a high probability prediction for favorable hurricane conditions that is flagged as being a ‘hot spot’ for tropical storms and hurricanes) have been about 87% accurate since 2006.

They predicted hurricanes Ike, Irene, and Sandy, (2008, 2011, and 2012). Both Hurricane Irene and Hurricane Sandy were predicted about 2-3 years in advance and were both correct. If there is anyone you should trust on knowing the future storm predictions, it is GWO.

The upcoming years have been predicted by GWO as being very favorable conditions for tropical storms and hurricanes to develop, also known as a “Climate Pulse Hurricane Enhancement Cycle”.
On average The Atlantic Basin Hurricane Season has 12 named storms, 6 hurricanes, and 2-3 major hurricanes while it runs from June 1 to December 1.

The hurricane season of 2015 ended with 11 named storms, 4 hurricanes, and 2 major hurricanes. Hurricane Alex formed on January 14th so was not counted in 2015, but as the first hurricane of 2016.

These numbers are important when it comes to knowing what the next hurricane season has in store. The high number of storms and the fact that El Niño ended before 2016, means that a Climate Pulse Hurricane Enhancement Cycle has started. This means that there will be a very good chance that a lot of hurricane development and landfalls are going to take place in the next couple of years.

2016 and 2017 will most likely be the most dangerous and costly years from hurricanes in over 10 years. 2016 is estimated to have 17 named storms, 9 hurricanes, and 4 major hurricanes while 2017 has 17 named storms, 9 hurricanes, and 5 major hurricanes.

Is Your Home Properly Protected?

If you have not made additional changes to your home to help keep it safe from storms, you don’t want to wait any longer. Three of the United States prediction zones of GWO are at high risk for 2016 and several of these zones will be at high risk for major impact hurricanes in 2017.

Over the next two years, it is expected that 5-8 Hot Spots will be found in the United States. A dangerous time is approaching and if we aren’t prepared, it will be even more dangerous. You can read GWO’s official Press Release by clicking here.
