Will Cooler Heads Prevail?


A study by William Gray and Philip Klotzbach of Colorado State University forecasts that this hurricane season, which begins June 1, will produce a total of 17 tropical storms, nine of them becoming full-blown hurricanes and five of those reaching Category 3 or above. This is well short of last season’s 26 storms, 14 hurricanes and seven Category 3s or above.
