North Atlantic and Western North Pacific Event Response
For over a decade, RMS has published an overview of North Atlantic seasonal activity forecasts and summarized the key oceanic and meteorological drivers behind the predictions.
For the upcoming season, RMS Event Response has released the executive summary of the 2022 Northern Hemisphere Tropical Cyclone Outlook report. Expanded in 2021 to cover seasonal forecasts in the Asia-Pacific region, the report again includes the latest forecasts of 2022 Western North Pacific typhoon activity.
RMS and the (re)insurance industry are no strangers to active hurricane seasons. If current forecasts verify, 2022 would be a record seventh consecutive above-normal season in the Atlantic Basin, extending the current ongoing record of six seasons beginning in 2016.
