ATLANTIC BASIN SEASONAL HURRICANE FORECAST FOR 2016
Forecast Parameter and 1981-2010
Issue Date 1 June 2016 - Updated 7/1

  • Information obtained through July 2016 indicates that the 2016 Atlantic hurricane
    season will have activity near the median 1981-2010 season. There remains considerable
    uncertainty with this forecast which we outline in the following paragraphs.
    We estimate that 2016 will have an additional 5 hurricanes (median is 6.5), 11
    named storms (median is 12.0), 50 named storm days (median is 60.1), 20 hurricane days
    (median is 21.3), 2 major (Category 3-4-5) hurricane (median is 2.0) and 4 major
    hurricane days (median is 3.9). The probability of U.S. major hurricane landfall is
    estimated to be about 95 percent of the long-period average. We expect Atlantic basin
    Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) and Net Tropical Cyclone (NTC) activity in 2016
    to be approximately 90 percent of their long-term averages for the remainder of the
    season.
