The National Weather Service forecasts an exceptionally busy hurricane season this year from the Atlantic Ocean. In fact, they even go so far as to say that they're expecting up to 25 named storms with 13 having hurricane potential.

As you can see, the whopping 85% projected "above normal" probability really stands out. The "near normal" sliver really fights for it's life. You got this, big guy! Hang in there!

I love the names they come up with for these severe storms. They look like a guest list to a karaoke party in the some suburban home.

Just wait until Joyce whips out the homemade potato salad...

What will Texas' hurricane season look like?

The warmer ocean temperatures and increased La Nina conditions can and will contribute to a busier hurricane season for much of America's southeastern coastlines.

For Texas, that means a higher threat of tropical storms within the Gulf Coast.

Why is Texas prone to hurricane-related weather?

Well, Texas is positioned in the sweet spot, tucked away in the Gulf Coast that acts as a bowl for incoming high winds. When conditions that favor hurricanes dance around the Atlantic Ocean, they tend to head west and often impact Florida first before moving to Mexico/Texas.

So, when you hear about how we haven't had many major hurricanes last year, just know that the weather could be plotting something big for this year...
