A weather research team at Colorado State University has put out a dire prediction for the rest of the Atlantic hurricane season of 2020.
The team is predicting the worst storm season in its 37-year history. 24 named storms, including 12 total hurricane of which 5 are projected to be Category 3 or higher.
If this prediction is correct, it would be the 2nd worst hurricane season on record, just trailing the 2005 hurricane season of Katrina and Wilma.
The team at CSU is also projecting a 75% chance that the Atlantic Coast is hit by a severe hurricane, which is a Category 3 or higher.
