Record warm ocean temperatures and a potential La Niña may create a perfect storm of conditions needed for major hurricanes.

Given predictions for above normal activity, Director of the Barbados Meteorological Services, Sabu Best is stressing the need for Barbadians to be ready for the upcoming Atlantic hurricane season, which starts June 1.

Mr. Best says data shows the centres of tropical cyclones have been passing closer to Barbados over the past few years.

He was reviewing past hurricane seasons and giving his prognosis for 2024.

During the analysis, he noted temperature records were broken last year and for 2024, they are already above average.
