On 1.06.2018 the hurricane season is starting. After devestating Storms last year, americans should be prepared for even greater storms this year.
Theres currently some listings and analytics about upcoming gathering tropical storms which can reach class 2 or 1.

These are not actual warnings. Forecasts are not always accurate.

This does not match the National Hurricane Center seasonal forecast, which indicates a "normal" hurricane season for 2018.

I gotta say, I don't know which source to trust here. Forecasts are usually very much a speculation. I just put this up here because a few very concerning storms are already gathering and could turn into tropical storms. I would take a guess and say thats probably getting over-average against the NHC's reports.

Hurricane season forecasts are very much indeed speculative, and either source could end up being correct. The reason I tend to stay with NHC forecasts is because MSM has a reputation for sensationalizing such stories in order to garner more traffic to their websites, which generates ratings and revenue for them.
