For the past six years, at least one named tropical system has formed in the Atlantic prior to the official start, June 1, of the hurricane season (June 1-Nov. 30). Due to these pre-season activities, the National Hurricane Center (or as described in National Hurricane Center wikipedia page ) NOAA has decided that beginning this year (2021), officials will issue their routine ‘tropical weather outlook’ forecasts starting on May 15th, rather than June 1st, 2021. So, the June 1st starting date is now just a formality from the past, with a new unofficial starting date of May 15th.

Above-active storm activity forecast for the 2021 season. KOIN 6 Meteorologist Kelley Bayern has the details, in the video published on May 14, 2021, “Atlantic Hurricane Season Begins June 1st. What are this season’s list of storm names?” below:
Greek letters will no longer be used as part of the naming system of Atlantic hurricanes starting this year. Above normal activities are seen in the forecast this year.
The Director of the National Hurricane Center, Kenneth Graham, said, “We are going to issue the Atlantic Outlook, the actual outlook product where you have the blobs on the website, we’re going to start that on May 15th instead of June 1st because we want to make sure we get that information out and start having those areas of concern. We’re going to do that a little earlier which is a better service.”
The Atlantic is not the only ocean basin with pre-season tropical activity in recent years. May 15th is already the official starting date for eastern Pacific hurricane season: Tropical Andres was named after it formed over 600 miles south of Baja California nearly one week ago (May 9, 2021). Andres became the earliest tropical storm ever formed in the eastern Pacific, surpassing Adrian formed on May 10 in 2017.

Keep in mind that these earlier activities are all part of the climate change resulting from global warming. To make a conscious effort in helping to slow down the climate change, let’s try to transition into renewable energy (solar and wind), drive electrical vehicles, reduce food waste, grow and eat locally, and look for ways to recycle, reduce, and reuse.
