Hurricane Predictions 2010
The News-Press recently published a report on the 2010 hurricane predictions, that was released by the forecast team at Colorado State University. The Colorado State University team is led by pioneer forecaster William Gray, who has been forecasting hurricanes for 27 years. The team predicted that we would have an above-average 2010 hurricane season.
Overall, the CSU prediction called for 15 named storms, 8 hurricanes and 4 major hurricanes. This report is based on the Atlantic basin, which includes all tropical storms and hurricanes in the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico.
"With a lot of hurricane awareness heating up before the season, it certainly makes sense to put out an early report," said Dr. Gerry Bell, NOAA's lead Atlantic hurricane seasonal forecaster. "But in August, that's when you really have the best handle on it. With August outlooks, we were right within our predicted range nine out of 12 times."
Bell said NOAA forecasters don't look at the Colorado State team's early reports, and sometimes the two institutes differ widely in their predictions. But all meteorologists study more or less the same factors in predicting how active 2010's season will be.
