Greetings, and welcome aboard weathernms.

Yep, looks like an average season, rather than more active.

NOAA Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook:
NOAA’s National Weather Service Climate Prediction Center calls for a 50 percent probability of a near-normal season, a 25 percent probability of an above-normal season and a 25 percent probability of a below-normal season.
