2010 Forecast

Tomorrow, Colorado State University will make its first 2010 Atlantic Hurricane Season Predictions.
My predictions are...
12 Named Storms
5 Hurricane
3 Major Hurricanes

The reason why so low because there is a possibility that very weak El Nino conditions may linger over the summer(Jun.July/Aug), but weaken to neutral conditions by fall(Sept/Oct/Nov)

Re: 2010 Forecast

TSR has issued its initial outlook for the 2010 season - the numbers are 14/7/3.
CSU has issued its initial outlook for the 2010 season - the average numbers are 14/7/4.
If El Nino subsides, my initial thoughts would suggest 12/6/3. In the past, after a strong El Nino, the range has been from 11/4/2 (1974) to 14/10/3 (1998). Initial analog years (in order of significance) are 1978, 1988, 1966 and 1998.
