Colorado State University, which pioneered seasonal hurricane forecasting 30 years ago, may have issued its last prediction.
Colorado State University increased the number of storms it expects to develop during the Atlantic hurricane season to 10 from nine.
The 2013 Atlantic hurricane season is humbling forecasters by shaping up as the first in almost two decades without a major storm, confounding predictions that it would be more active than normal.
Colorado State University researchers raised their expectations for this year’s Atlantic hurricane season to 13 named storms, just above average.
A cooler Atlantic Ocean will probably produce 10 named storms in the hurricane season that begins June 1, about half last year’s total, according to researchers at Colorado State University.
"While we've had three hurricanes in the Atlantic, they have all been short-lived and rather ugly."
