Hurricane Season 2012 Predictions
The latest hurricane prediction information is now out from Drs. Klotzbach and Gray from Colorado State University's Department of Atmospheric Science. For Florida, it looks like the team is predicting a relatively mild hurricane season. A few factors such as a cooler Atlantic Ocean temperature and a possible El Niño event occurring this fall seemed to be aligning for minimum hurricane pressure for Florida. They are predicting 10 named storms and two major hurricanes for the Atlantic basin.
