The peak period for hurricane season will get off to a quiet start this month, with below-average storm activity expected over the next two weeks, according to a forecast released Monday.

Colorado State University said conditions in the Atlantic won’t be favorable for tropical storms or hurricanes from Monday through Aug. 18, with various factors coming together to suppress their formation.

“We believe that the next two weeks will be characterized by activity at below normal levels,” states a forecast by the university’s Tropical Meteorology Project. “The National Hurricane Center does not foresee any tropical cyclone development over the next five days. None of the global models indicate significant tropical cyclone development in the next week.”
