  • May 08, 2017

Get Your Outlook From the Professionals

Hurricane season is coming up. Officially, hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30. Last year, an above average season brought deadly Hurricane Matthew, the southernmost Category 5 Atlantic Hurricane on record. Hurricane Matthew brought destruction to the Caribbean, especially Haiti, and even impacted Florida.

Are you curious what to expect this year? Are you located in an area that is often affected by hurricanes? Join us for our Tropical Storm Outlook 2017 Webinar on May 11 at 2:00 pm ET to get this year’s outlook from the professionals. Earth Networks senior meteorologist Julie Gaddy will host the free, live event.

We’ll Fill You In:

Our webinar has three critical sections to help you learn what to expect this summer. Our Tropical Storm Outlook will cover what to expect in the Atlantic, the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. The season was already off to an early start with the first named storm, Arlene, to form since 2003. We’ll explore what this implies for the rest of the season.

The second section we’ll cover is the hurricane forecast. Partly due to a weak La Nina forming, 2016 was a more active hurricane season with 4 major hurricanes. Last year also saw a total of 15 named storms. During our webinar, we’ll explore how many major hurricanes will form in 2017/

The last section of the webinar will focus on what really matters to most people: the U.S. landfall threat. Will hurricanes hit your area? With the forecast return of an El Nino pattern, tropical storm formation is anticipated to suppressed. But does that mean we’ll have fewer landfalls?
