Tracking the topics:

NOAA and CSU updated their tropical forecast on Thursday and both groups still expect an above average season. The presence of La Nina, weaker Atlantic trade winds, an active west African monsoon and a strong Bermuda high helped the forecasters determine the numbers being above average. The total number of named storms and major hurricanes has decreased by one from NOAA due to some variability in the Sea Surface Temperatures across the Atlantic.

The updated tropical outlook has lowered the number of named storms by one. (Copyright 2022 by KPRC Click2Houston - All rights reserved.)

No tropical development is expected in the Atlantic in the next five days. We are more than 1/3 of the way through the season but 92% of seasonal activity is to come. August through October accounts for 78% of tropical storm days and 96% of major hurricane days. So far we’ve had three named storms.
