This is the post for numbers of storms in the format of TropicalStorms/Hurricanes/Major Hurricanes. This will be open until June 1st.

My guess for 2018 is 14/7/3



Last year (2017) the final number was 17/10/6 which was way above. Closest was JoshuaK with 17/9/4, followed by ftlaudbob with 18/9/5, and Bloodstar with 18/9/4

Survived Charley at Cat 4 under a staircase. Won't do that again. I watch SW Florida and Abaco primarily.

Couldn't edit my previous prediction issued in early May, so here is the minor tweak (upward) ahead of the June 1st deadline:

14 storms
6 hurricanes
3 majors

I'll add the following gut conjecture... the 2018 season will be busy early with several tropical storms and a weak hurricane (Alberto in late May followed by Beryl in late June then Chris in sometime in July. I believe August and early September will be unusually quiet. Activity cranks up the second half of September, early and late October, and first week of November with 5 hurricanes, 3 achieving major status. My gut suggests males dominate the Atlantic Basin in 2018, with Isaac and Kirk names to remember.

Given the set-up in May of persistent troughiness over the eastern half of the Gulf of Mexico combined with a weak Bermuda high funneling copious tropical moisture northward out of the western Caribbean Sea, the entire length of Florida from the Keys and southern tip to Pensacola in the Panhandle could be in play.

Raw numbers from a methodology I've employed for the past ten years - these are *raw* numbers, and I tend to use them as a baseline from which I look over all sorts of other info - unashamed to say I will also be reading in earnest Colorado State University's updated seasonal forecast, which comes out later this morning - before finalizing my bid.

Right now, my inclination is to actually go lower than my raw findings (image below)

CSU =14/6/3. Noted cooling in the basin ascreason for the reduction. TSR= 14/4/1. I will stay with my earlier prediction.

Several variables leave me viewing 2018 in the Atlantic as rather evenly weighted to around normal, or close to either side thereof, for total numbers of names, hurricanes and majors, but importantly, with an above-average to high landfall risk from the Gulf coast states to the mid-Atlantic.

Given that we have already seen one (preseason) named storm, and indications are that we may very well see at least one in June (early season), I'll go with my system's output of 12 Names, 6 HURs and 2 Majors - offering a most likely range of 9-13 Names, 4-7 Hurricanes and 1-3 Majors. Above average to high risk of U.S. landfalls (which could make season totals moot if any significant cyclones make landfalls, regardless of season formation totals - "It only takes one.")

Final bid for 2018: 12 Names, 6 Hurricanes, 2 Majors

Ok we're locked down for this year. Alberto is a freebie.

(We can track edits, so careful )
