Forecasters say the Atlantic hurricane season, which begins this week, could be busier than normal.

Forecasters with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration say there could be 10 to 16 named storms, with 5 to 9 becoming hurricanes.

An “average” season has 12 named storms with six hurricanes.

We see the most hurricanes in our area between August and October, when the cold waters of the Atlantic heat up.

Forecasters say there is one factor that could lower the amount of storms.
