    The U.S. government on Thursday forecast an “above-normal” 2021 Atlantic hurricane season, which is already off to an early start with a storm expected to form off Bermuda this week.

    The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) forecast between three and five major hurricanes, with sustained winds of at least 111 miles per hour, will form in 2021.

    The average for tropical cyclones in the Atlantic between 1991 and 2020 is three major hurricanes, seven hurricanes and 14 tropical storms. The average increased after NOAA shifted the 30-year period used to set the averages earlier this year. Ross Hull reports.
