Hurricane season 2024: a list of names and forecasts of storm activity in the Atlantic

US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts above-normal hurricane activity in the Atlantic Basin this year.

La Niña and temperature Above average ocean conditions are the main factors for hurricane activity.

NOAA is forecasting 17 to 25 named storms (wind speeds of 62 mph or greater). Of these, according to projections, from 8 to 13 will become hurricanes (wind speeds of 120 km per hour and above), including from 4 to 7 - into major hurricanes (categories 3, 4 or 5, wind speeds of 180 km per hour and above).

Experts are 70% confident in these forecasts.

Here are the storm names selected for the 2024 Atlantic hurricane season:

  • Alberto;
  • Beryl;
  • Chris;
  • Debbie;
  • Ernesto;
  • Francine;
  • Gordon;
  • Helen;
  • Isaac;
  • Joyce;
  • Kirk;
  • Leslie;
  • Milton;
  • Nadine;
  • Oscar;
  • Patty;
  • Raphael;
  • Sarah;
  • Tara;
  • Valerie;
  • William.

These names can be applied to hurricanes, tropical storms, and other systems originating in the Atlantic Ocean.


The upcoming Atlantic hurricane season is expected to have above-normal activity due to a confluence of factors:

  • record high temperatures in the Atlantic Ocean;
  • development of El Niño conditions in the Pacific Ocean;
  • decreasing Atlantic trade winds and reducing wind shear.

All this contributes to the formation of tropical storms.

What causes storms

As one of the strongest El Niños ever observed draws to a close, NOAA scientists are predicting a rapid transition to La Niña conditions.

La Niña tends to reduce wind shear in the tropics. At the same time, abundant ocean heat in the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea creates more energy for storm development.

There is a potential for a larger-than-normal West African monsoon this hurricane season. It could cause African easterly waves, which in turn will trigger some of the strongest and longest-lasting Atlantic storms.

Finally, light trade winds allow hurricanes to gain strength without disrupting high wind shear and also minimize ocean cooling.

Human-caused climate change is warming our oceans globally and in the Atlantic Basin, as well as melting ice on land. This risks rising sea levels, which increases the risk of storm surges.
