The Central Pacific could see increased storm activity this hurricane season, according to scientists with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Central Pacific Hurricane Center.
The Center released Wednesday its outlook for tropical cyclone activity during the 2014 Central Pacific Hurricane Season.
Scientists predict four to seven tropical cyclones this hurricane season with an 80-percent chance of normal or above normal cyclone activity. The region normally sees four to five systems. Tropical cyclones include tropical depressions, tropical storms and hurricanes.
The hurricane season starts on June 1 and runs through Nov. 30.
