Atlantic may see above-average hurricane season

Forecasters from Colorado State University predicted that the 2010 Atlantic hurricane season (June 1 – Nov, 30) will be above average, with 15 named storms and 8 hurricanes, 4 of Category 3 or higher. They forecast the probability of a major hurricane hitting the U.S. coast at 69%. These preliminary predictions will be revised on June 2 and August 4. Although much remains to be learned about the connection between hurricanes and climate change, some climate scientists think global warming affects hurricane severity more than frequency.
