Houston Strong: Preparing for a Busy Hurricane Season with Creekside Risk 

The 2024 hurricane season is upon us, with forecasters predicting a “frenzy of tropical activity.” Here at Creekside, we want to ensure our Houston neighbors are prepared for whatever Mother Nature throws our way. 

What’s the Forecast? 

AccuWeather predicts a busy season with: 

  • 20-25 named storms 
  • 8-12 hurricanes 
  • 4-7 major hurricanes (Category 3 or higher) 
  • 4-6 direct U.S. impacts 

The Texas coast, including Houston, is at an increased risk for a direct hit. 

Why the Uptick? 

Several factors contribute to this active season: 

  • Warm Ocean Temperatures: Warmer water fuels hurricanes. This year, ocean temperatures are higher than usual, creating a breeding ground for storms to form. 
  • La Niña Watch: A La Niña weather pattern is expected to develop, bringing calmer winds which allow storms to linger and gain strength. 
  • African Wave Action: A strong African jet stream is predicted, potentially leading to robust storm systems forming off the coast of Africa (where 80% of major hurricanes originate). 
  • Bermuda-Azores High: This high-pressure system might shift south, steering storms directly into the Caribbean and ultimately, the Gulf of Mexico.
