Are you prepared for hurricane season? With the help of Home Watch, you can stay informed and safe during potentially dangerous storms. The National Hurricane Center is making significant changes to the hurricane forecast cone in 2024 to improve communication of a cyclone's threats and consider past forecasting errors.

What is the Hurricane Forecast Cone?

The hurricane forecast cone is a vital tool used by the National Hurricane Center to predict the possible path of a tropical cyclone. It consists of a series of forecast circles that indicate the probable track of the storm over a specific period. While the cone is updated annually, the changes are usually more noticeable in the details rather than the overall display.

Why the Changes?

The increased width of the forecast cone is based on error statistics from 2019 to 2023. While the cone will appear larger than in previous years, it has significantly improved since its inception more than two decades ago. It's crucial to understand that the impacts of a tropical cyclone can extend well beyond the cone, and the storm's center may not always stay within the forecasted track.

What to Expect for the 2024 Hurricane Season

The hurricane season typically runs from June to November, with the peak activity occurring from August to October. Experts at Colorado State University predict a busy season with the formation of 23 named storms and 11 hurricanes. This is the largest prediction of named storms that CSU has ever issued, indicating the potential severity of the upcoming season.

Stay Informed and Prepared

As hurricane season approaches, it's essential to stay informed and prepared for potential storms.
