The forcast I saw said normal to below normal storms this season...with the feeling from the story that the below normal might be more the story. Let's hope!

I take this with a grain of salt (similar to negative reviews ...lol). 2013 was predicted to be an "active season". Here's what the was published for last year, which turned out to be relatively quiet. I'm not sure anyone can predict weather patterns for next week, much less for an entire hurricane season.

Again, the following was the prediction for LAST year (2013).

"This year, the Farmers’ Almanac is predicting an active tropical storm season. An unusually early threat could materialize during the first week of June over the Gulf of Mexico. Another tropical storm could form and threaten the Gulf in mid-August. Toward the end of August, a hurricane is forecast to be off the Atlantic seaboard, but is expected to stay just offshore. Another hurricane threat is expected along the East Coast during the first week of September. The traditional peak of the hurricane season occurs on September 10. Finally, a very late-season tropical cyclone may adversely influence the weather around Florida and the Bahamas during mid-November.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is also predicting an active year with between 13 and 20 tropical storms and up to six major hurricanes. The Colorado State University Hurricane Forecast Team’s 2013 predictions are even more extreme. That group expects 18 named storms, including four major hurricanes."
