What’s up with the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season?

The 2020 and 2021 Atlantic hurricane seasons have been whirlwinds named storms and all kinds of swells, good and bad, with some epic days from mist (like Larry). Now we’re looking at another above-average forecast for 2022, but things are still eerily quiet across the Atlantic. Since the start of the season in June, only three named storms have occurred. The first started again in the Pacific and the next two lasted hours, not days. Now, as we head into August, a more weather-active month, curious minds want to know: will the tropics boil or just simmer?
