Destructive Weather

MCAS Beaufort is in Tropical Cyclone Condition V for 2018 Atlantic Hurricane season until November 30.  This year is predicted to be a near or below normal season due to a late season El Nino developing. NOAA is predicting 9-13 named storms.  4-7 will become Hurricanes.  0-2 will become major Hurricanes. 

Monitor the latest forecasts and briefings from the National Weather Service in order to prepare your family for any extreme weather affecting our area or along your route during vacation travels. Reduction in predicted storms does not reduce the risk…it only takes one. Be Prepared!
