More than two dozen hurricanes could be on their way this year, thanks to climate change and La Niña, experts have forecast.

"This season is looking to be extraordinary in a number of ways," NOAA administrator Rick Spinrad said at a news conference on Thursday . Spinrad noted that 2024 was now on track to be"the seventh consecutive above-normal season." Scientists previously discovered that climate change has made extremely active Atlantic hurricane seasons much more likely than they were in the 1980s. This is because, while hotter oceans don't make hurricanes more frequent, they do make them grow more quickly and become more powerful. Hurricanes grow from a thin layer of warm ocean water that evaporates and rises to form storm clouds.
