https://abcnews.go.com/US/disaster-planning-crucial-hurricane-outlook-points-normal-atlantic/story?id=87924972

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released a revised hurricane outlook for the rest of the 2022 Atlantic season on Thursday, stating that between 14 and 20 named storms are expected, with up to 10 hurricanes and up to five major hurricanes.

The average number of named storms per year is 14, with the average number of hurricanes clocking in at seven, and an average of three major hurricanes per year, according to NOAA, which continues to point to another above-average hurricane season.

NOAA had predicted up to 21 named storms in its original forecast in May. There have been three so far this season.

4. Texans are starting to pray for a hurricane

and the rains it could bring.

Triple digit heat almost every day since back in May, exceptional drought, plants shriveling up and turning brown, fires breaking out (one of them about ten miles from my home).

We are so ready for something to change the weather.

Of course here in Central Texas we don't bear the brunt of the hurricanes' destructiveness.
