Conditions are ripe for an above average number of hurricanes in 2018, a year after one of the most devastating seasons on record.

Researchers at Colorado State University predict 14 named storms, seven hurricanes and three major hurricanes, packing sustained winds of at least 111 mph. A typical season sees 12 named storms, 6.5 hurricanes and two majors

An active season does not mean that any particular location will get hit, but it raises the chances. Florida has suffered direct hits from hurricanes two years in a row, and another strong season would suggest the Atlantic Ocean remains in a period of hyperactivity.
