2023 Atlantic Hurricane Season—a Wrap (Maybe)
Union of Concerned Scientists
NOVEMBER 29, 2023
A 2023 study states that, “The number of storms that intensify from a Category 1 hurricane (or weaker) into a major hurricane within 36 hours has more than doubled,” in 2001–2020 compared with 1971–1990. I wrote once that the US may feel “lucky” for not seeing many landfalling hurricanes in any given year.
