2022 Hurricane Outlook
This Hurricane Season
The first of June is the beginning of the Atlantic hurricane season, and does not end until the last day of November.
These storms do not usually occur until the peak of the hurricane season, which is around August through October. This is because the Atlantic Ocean and El Nino’s waters are warmed from the summer months, and hurricanes first condition needed is warmer waters.
On December 9, 2021, CSU issued an extended range forecast for the 2022 hurricane season, predicting slightly above-average activity with 13–16 named storms, 6–8 hurricanes, 2–3 major hurricanes, and an ACE index of about 124 units.
