How Do Forecasters Predict the Weather? 

Buckle up. This could be yet another heavy year for hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean. 

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicted Tuesday that the summer in the Atlantic will produce 14 to 21 named storms, six to 10 becoming hurricanes and three to six turbo-charging into major hurricanes with winds greater than 110 mph. Even with normals shifting upwards to reflect more active storm seasons in recent decades, these predictions are above the 30-year average of 14 named storms, seven hurricanes and three major hurricanes.

You may ask. How do forecasters predict the weather? Can NOAA see into the future? Do they have a crystal ball? Not likely!

We visit the National Weather Service to take a look at how technology has changed over time and the advancements the United States has made in forecasting and we learn how weather forecasting works and how forecasts help us plan ahead. Watch our full report below.
