The Atlantic hurricane season runs June 1 through November 30. As the season begins, meteorologists and other experts analyze and weigh in on what kind of season this year will be.

First, we talk with Space City Weather Meteorologist Eric Berger, who shares his insight on the outlook of this year's hurricane season and what Houstonians can expect.

Then, we're joined by Brent Taylor, Chief Communications Officer for the Houston Office of Emergency Management (OEM), who discusses tips for extreme weather, how to best prepare for the season, and where residents can call for help.

Plus, Dan Bawden, Owner and President of Legal Eagle Contractors, joins the conversation to share advice on how to best prepare your house before a storm hits.
