Seasonal & Sub-Seasonal Tropical Cyclone Forecasts

Forecasting

Colorado State University has issued forecasts of Atlantic basin hurricane activity for over 36 years. Following the pioneering work of Prof. William Gray, our group continues the long CSU tradition in forecasting with continually improving techniques for predicting tropical cyclone activity powered by new research.

Researchers predicting above-average 2021 Atlantic hurricane season

Colorado State University hurricane researchers are predicting an above-average Atlantic hurricane season in 2021, citing the likely absence of El NiƱo as a primary factor.

The warmer subtropical Atlantic also favors an active 2021 Atlantic hurricane season.
