One Storm Forecaster Lowers 2007 Estimate Slightly

Comments Off

Hurricane researcher William Gray lowered his 2007 forecast slightly last week, calling for 15 named storms with 8 becoming hurricanes and 4 becoming intense hurricanes.

At the outset of the hurricane season on May 31, Gray had predicted 17 named storms and 9 hurricanes, 5 of them intense. The new forecast by month called for 3 named storms, 2 hurricanes and one intense hurricane in August; 5 named storms, 4 hurricanes and 2 intense hurricanes in September; and 5 named storms, 2 hurricanes and one intense hurricane in October and November combined.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 until November 30 of each year.
