BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The National Hurricane Center is making the unprecedented move this year of starting hurricane forecasts in May, even though “hurricane season” doesn’t officially start until June 1st. The decision seems to send a message to those who don’t believe in climate change or global warming that it’s real and that the risk of tropical storm activity is starting earlier than ever before.

From the National Hurricane Center in a note to media:

”In order to provide more frequent information on the potential for
tropical cyclone formation as the official June 1 start of the
Atlantic hurricane season approaches, the National Hurricane Center
will begin routine issuance of the Atlantic Tropical Weather Outlook
(TWO) and the Graphical TWO at 800 AM EDT (1200 UTC) May 15, 2021.

Given recent increased tropical cyclone activity in the Atlantic
basin in late May, routine issuance of the Atlantic TWO starting on
May 15 offers a service improvement over unscheduled Special TWOs
that are issued to discuss the possibility of tropical cyclone
formation prior to the official start of hurricane season on
June 1.”

Ana, Bill and Claudette are set as the first storm names this season.
