BILOXI, Miss. (WLOX) - Experts this year aren’t expecting the historic level of storm activity we saw in 2020. But the 2021 Hurricane Season is still predicted to bring us an above average number of storms.

NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center is forecasting a likely range of 13 to 20 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 6 to 10 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 3 to 5 major hurricanes (category 3, 4 or 5; with winds of 111 mph or higher) is expected.

As we prepare for storm season, the WLOX First Alert Weather Team is there for you. Download the free WLOX First Alert Weather App for Apple or Android devices today to receive alerts, forecast information, view live radar, and tropical storm tracks.

We also invite you to watch our WLOX Special Report “Prepare 2021: Reasons to be Ready”. Meteorologists Carrie Duncan, Wesley Williams, Eric Jeansonne, and Taylor Graham cover what you need to know to be prepared when, not if, a tropical system targets South Mississippi.

Los expertos de este año no esperan el nivel histórico de actividad de tormentas que vimos en 2020. Pero aún se prevé que la temporada de huracanes de 2021 nos traerá un número de tormentas superior al promedio.
