Dr. Gerry Bell, lead seasonal hurricane forecaster at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Climate Prediction Center, told The New York Times warming waters, along with a relative lack of sudden wind shift, have created optimal hurricane conditions this season. An average season produces 12 named storms of which six become hurricanes, including three major hurricanes. According to Wunderground, ACE is "used to express the activity and destructive potential of individual tropical cyclones and entire tropical cyclone seasons". Irma's broken two ACE records: the highest ACE rating ever at 44.2 units, and also the highest ACE values over a 24-hour period.
