Extreme Weather in the Northeast

The Northeast has seen multiple types of extreme weather this July. Parts of the Mid-Atlantic are experiencing extreme drought for the first time in over a decade. Temperatures, particularly low temperatures, have been record or near-record hot. Preliminary data indicates that New York has likely seen its most tornadoes in a single month on record. Areas of Vermont, northern New Hampshire, and northern New York saw significant flash flooding. These extreme events have caused a multitude of impacts and contributed to several deaths.

Exceptionally Active Hurricane Season Predicted
The 2024 Atlantic hurricane season is likely to be extremely active, according to NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center. The outlook calls for 17 to 25 named storms, of which 8 to 13 are expected to become hurricanes, including 4 to 7 major hurricanes. This is compared to an average season of 14 named storms including 7 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes (based on data from 1991 to 2020). Multiple factors such as exceptionally warm Atlantic sea surface temperatures, a developing La Nina, and reduced wind shear are expected to align to potentially make this season very active. The greatest number of named storms in the Atlantic was 30 in 2020, while the greatest number of hurricanes was 15 in 2005. Both of these years also featured a record-tying 7 major hurricanes. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 through November 30, peaking from mid-August to late October.
