The Caribbean hurricane season falls under the Atlantic hurricane season. The 2020 Atlantic hurricane season affects many areas of the region. It will begin on June 1st and end on November 30th. However, just like any other hurricane season, tropical cyclones can occur at any moment.
Since we still have time for the Caribbean hurricane season 2020 to officially start, the predictions of tropical activity is very limited. Here is what we know about the hurricanes that will occur during this year’s hurricane season so far.
The very first hurricanes are expected to occur on April 2 and April 7. Between these dates, a total of 16 hurricanes are likely to be experienced. Out of the sixteen initial hurricanes, seven of them are believed to be major ones. Followed by these, on April 13, UA expects nineteen named storms with five major hurricanes. The total hurricanes up to this point is going to be over twenty if the predictions are correct.
Lastly, the farthest prediction is from TWC which expects 18 named storms which will have nine hurricanes with four major ones.
*As of May 2020, none of the predictions have come out to be right. There has been zero activity in the named storms, hurricanes and major hurricanes. So far the 2020 Caribbean hurricane season is going very calmly and possibly to remain this way in the upcoming weeks.
