2015 hurricane season, below average, ending quietly


Colorado State climatologists Philip Klotzbach and Bill Gray had predicted 8 named storms in their Aug. 4. season update. In a Monday season-end review, they pointed out that the last time the number of named storms was below the 1981-2010 average two years in a row was in 1993 and 1994, which is the year before the active hurricane era began.
