Another active hurricane season is in store for the Atlantic, with between 16 and 20 storms named across the basin by the time it ends in November, AccuWeather Inc. said.

The commercial forecaster sees six to eight of the storms becoming hurricanes, with three to five of them growing into major systems. That occurs when when a storm’s winds exceed 111 miles (179 kilometers) per hour. Four to six of them could directly strike the U.S., it said.
