The 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season is in full swing. The season officially starts on June 1 and ends on November 30.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released its 2021 forecast in May.

It calls for an above-average year of 13 to 20 named storms, six to 10 hurricanes, and three to five major hurricanes.

Climatologically, the month of June is fairly quiet. More than three-fourths of the season's activity falls during August, September, and October.

In June, we closely watch the Gulf of Mexico and the western Caribbean for possible tropical development.

The eastern Gulf of Mexico is a "more likely" development zone during June.

The Atlantic Basin has already seen its first named storm of the season.

Ana developed near Bermuda in May but didn't impact land.

You can stay up-to-date online this hurricane season through our Hurricane Center.
