Two months have passed since the hurricane season began in the Atlantic and until now there has been quite a bit of calm, but it is also true that, historically, 90% of cyclonic activity tends to occur after August 1st.

With the all-time peak just six weeks away and an increase in storms seemingly inevitable, weather experts at Colorado State University updated their outlook for the hurricane season on August 1st, The Washington Post reports.

The new forecast continues to call for an above-average season, with a major hurricane more likely to hit the US Gulf Coast or East Coast this season.

It would mark the eighth straight season with an average or above-average number of storms in the Atlantic, which has been churning out destructive hurricanes at a dizzying rate since the last downturn in 2015.

In addition to the state of Colorado, AccuWeather meteorologists updated their hurricane season forecast last Tuesday and increased their projections for the number of named storms from 11 to 15 to 13 to 17, which is in the range close to what normal.
