The Wx Centre 2017 hurricane forecast for the Atlantic basin is looking at an average year.

We are projecting 13 named storms, 6 hurricanes, and three major hurricanes.

El Niño's potential development is among the factors taken into account.

The intensity of hurricanes is measured using the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Categories range from 1 to 5. A Category 3 or stronger is considered a major hurricane.

The Atlantic hurricane season begins June 1 and end on November 30.

So far this year, there was already a storm named Arlene.
