ARLENE NO MORE:
The first named storm of the 2023 hurricane season, Arlene, became a remnant low on Saturday, marking one name off the 2023 hurricane season list.
As for the implications on the rest of the season, having a named storm early in the season does not indicate how the season will go. Right now, the seasonal forecast still calls for a near-average number of storms this hurricane season, which is around 14 named storms. However, the seasonal forecast also has no way of predicting where the storms will go. As always, it’s important to have a plan ready and in place this hurricane season in case a storm happens to come our way.
