AccuWeather’s world-renowned team of meteorologists deliver seasonal hurricane, typhoon and cyclone forecasts based upon the results of proprietary research studies on tropical cyclone cycles, incorporating the latest information on the expected water temperature anomalies, status of El Niño/La Niña, and other teleconnections and proven hurricane/typhoon/cyclone activity indicators.
What makes these forecasts especially valuable is that they not only provide projections on the number of storms that are most likely, but also detail the expected strength and landfall impact areas for the upcoming season.
These seasonal forecasts, including a written discussion explaining the reasoning behind the forecast and our level of confidence in the forecast details, are issued three months in advance of hurricane season. For example, you receive the AccuWeather Hurricane Forecast a month prior to the seasonal hurricane forecast by Dr. Gray of Colorado State University and two months prior to the National Hurricane Center seasonal forecast.
Our Hurricane/Typhoon/ Cyclone Forecasts are updated in December, March, May, June, and in each month during the hurricane season to enable appropriate hedging strategies and other proactive preparations. These AccuWeather Hurricane/Typhoon/Cyclone Forecasts are released to private clients five days before they are released to the public.
