Now that we are almost 1/3 into Sept and technically near the "peak of the season", what is the prognosis for 20 more named systems to meet the high end of some of the predictions for the 2010 season? I mean, anything can happen, but how realistic is it? Curious what the good folks here are thinking - I know the pros won't update anything until after the final bell (although some of them are now saying this season could go on through December). And what is the value of these predictions? All it does is make people upset. Until a storm forms and is close to a landfall anywhere (US or foreign, we are all human lives) there seems to be no value in these forecasts except an excuse to raise gas prices, insurance costs and other costs because it "might" happen.
