This is for you overachieving travelers out there who like to plan your trips several years in advance– or, if you want to start prepping your grandchildren who haven’t been born yet for their future travels…100 years from now. There’s new information to help you plan your trips. A recent article in Wired states that scientists have developed ways of predicting hurricanes many years in advance.
The ability of scientists to predict hurricanes years in advance can affect how, when and where travelers plan their trips. For years, scientists have only been able to predict hurricanes for that upcoming season. Scientists have used data from the last half-century to predict hurricanes decades in the future. This year, it was predicted there would be 14 to 23 storms, of which there have been 20 named storms, with the hurricane season ending on November 30th.
So where are the destinations that you should steer clear of during the hurricane seasons over the coming years? Scientists’ predictions show that the South Atlantic will see an increase in the frequency and strength of hurricanes throughout the rest of the century.
