Watch out Florida: Forecast predicts active 2018 hurricane season

Colorado State University predicts 14 named storms, seven hurricanes and three major hurricanes.

The onslaught of storms left deep wounds across the Caribbean and southern United States that have not yet healed.

The 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season runs from June 1 to November 30, and this year includes the names: Alberto, Beryl, Chris, Debby, Ernesto, Florence, Gordon, Helene, Isaac, Joyce, Kirk, Leslie, Michael, Nadine, Oscar, Patty, Rafael, Sara, Tony, Valerie, and William.

Following 2017's historically destructive fall and summer, scientists are now predicting the upcoming 2018 hurricane season will again be above average.

Unfortunately, South Africa will not play Test cricket again until mid-July when they travel to Sri Lanka for a two-Test series. Shane Warne wants a major clean-out in Australian cricket following South Africa's test series win.

An above-average hurricane season this year would follow devastation wrecked by a series of 12 named storms in 2017.

The next Colorado State updates are planned for May 31, July 2 and August 2, with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issuing its first outlook in late May.

For those still grappling with the devastation of hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria a year ago, the 2018 hurricane season may not offer a reprieve. However, because it comes so early, the April forecast can be the least accurate, according to Phil Klotzbach, lead author of the report.

As many as 14 named storms have been predicted, seven of which are expected to be just as monstrous as Harvey, Irma and Maria from past year. That number is also above the past half-century average at 42 percent.

After picking up three wickets on the opening day after bowling his heart out, Cummins continued in the same vein on Saturday. Cummins was not given out initially, but South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis reviewed the decision.

The 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season was historic in many ways, most notably it will go down as the costliest in USA history.

"As of now, I don't see anything in the immediate future that would cause sea surface temperatures to warm up dramatically".

"Hurricanes have definitely gotten people's attention after what happened past year", Phil Klotzbach, a CSU research scientist, said in an interview Thursday.

This year is more hard to call because neither the Atlantic nor the Pacific is offering forecasters a lot of clues, Klotzbach said. Waters in other parts of the Atlantic remained cooler than average.

These aren't simply buffs for the weapons, as damage falloff-the distance at which their damage is reduced-has also been altered. Another week has rolled around and that means a new set of weekly challenges for Fortnite Battle Royale's Battle Pass.

The researchers point to La Nina, a global climate phenomenon which forecasters think could fade away over the next few months.
