It's moving toward the west-northwest at about 17 miles per hour with that general motion expected to continue for the next couple of days followed by a turn toward the northwest late this weekend or early next week, the National Hurricane Center said.

    By Rich McKay (Reuters) - Tropical Storm Josephine formed in the Atlantic Ocean on Thursday, hitting the earliest benchmark of a J-named storm on record, another sign the Atlantic hurricane season is more active than usual, forecasters said. "It's the earliest 10th named storm on record. It means we're in a busy time ahead," said Daniel Brown, a hurricane specialist with the National Hurricane Center. "Typically we'd have just three named storms at this time of year," Brown said. "This is a lot." The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) on Aug. 6 increased its prediction for the number of tropical storms expected this year to as many as 25, the highest in the agency's history, forecasters said.

    2019's Hurricane Dorian. How bad is the 2020 hurricane season expected to be? So bad there might not be enough traditional hurricane names to go around, experts say. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s May forecast gave a 60% chance of an above-average hurricane season. That’s now up to 85% in the latest forecast, with a prediction of 19 to 25 named storms, seven to 11 of them hurricanes, with three to six becoming major hurricanes.

    This year’s Atlantic hurricane season is whipping up to be a dangerous doozy, with double the number of “named” storms than a normal season, meteorologists are warning. The 2020 season will be “extremely active” with 24 named storms predicted by Colorado State University researchers. A dozen of those storms are expected to be hurricanes, with five of them regarded as major — meaning a Category 3 or greater, the university’s Tropical Weather and Climate Research lab predicts. There’s also a 75 percent chance that at least one of those major hurricanes will strike the US coast. If the forecast proves accurate — which Dr. Phil Klotzbach, the lead forecaster of the CSU team, told CBS News “isn’t that much...
    Nine named storms already in the books have broken records for the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season, but government forecasters said Thursday that even stormier conditions are on the horizon that could push the limit on traditional storm names. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said in its updated hurricane season outlook that conditions exist for what could be one of the busiest on record.

    FORT COLLINS, Colo. (WJZ) — While Maryland continues to clean up from Tropical Storm Isaias, a group of researchers predicts the remainder of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season will be “extremely active.” Researchers at Colorado State University have revised their forecast for the season to include a total of 24 named storms, up four from their forecast from last month. The tally includes the nine named storms that have already occurred in the Atlantic this year. Of the 24 storms, twelve are expected to become hurricanes, including Isaias and Hanna, which already formed. Five of the hurricanes could reach category three or greater strength. The group based its prediction on a number of factors, including warmer-than-average sea surface temperatures and...
    Weather experts warn that this year's hurricane season will be 'extremely active' with 24 named storms. The 2020 Atlantic storm season is predicted to bring a total of 12 hurricanes with five of them being major ones, both figures that are double that of a normal season. The Colorado State University (CSU) research team on Atlantic hurricanes, which regularly releases forecasts, announced the predictions Wednesday – the most severe forecast in their 37-year history. The season is already two weeks ahead of record pace and it's only a third of the way through the season. Hurricane Isaias, which hit the Caribbean last week and made landfall in the US this week, is already the fifth storm to hit land this...
    BY SETH BORENSTEIN, AP Science Writer Already smashing records, this year’s hyperactive Atlantic hurricane season is about to get even nastier, forecasters predict. In the coming months, they expect to run out of traditional hurricane names and see about twice as much storm activity as a normal year. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on Thursday upped its seasonal forecast, now predicting a far-above-average 19 to 25 named storms — seven to 11 of them to become hurricanes and three to six of those to become major hurricanes with winds of at least 111 mph (178 kph). That’s a few more storms than the agency’s May forecast. The agency increased the chance of an above average hurricane season from 60%...

The 2020 season has started off with a record-setting nine named storms so far and could become "extremely active" in the coming months due to hotter-than-average sea surface temperatures in the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea.  Forecasters have predicted an active season because of warmer ocean temperatures driven by climate change, but the 2020 season is on pace to break records.  Climate change has triggered more intense and frequent weather...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – With nine named storms down, and the peak of hurricane season still ahead of us, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has updated its forecast for this year.
