Busy 'Cane Season Forecast for Atlantic

By Capital Weather Gang

Capital Weather Gang: Live From the Bahamas

Colorado State University hurricane experts William Gray and Phil Klotzbach opened the 2008 Bahamas Weather Conference this morning by issuing their prediction for the 2008 Atlantic hurricane season. They expect an above-average season, which spans June 1 to Nov. 30, with 15 named storms (avg: 9.6), 8 hurricanes (avg: 5.9) and 4 intense (Category 3 or higher) hurricanes (avg: 2.3). Watch the VODcast (video podcast) of the forecast:

The USA Today Weather Guys reported last week that the Colorado State crew has tweaked its statistical models after overestimating hurricane activity the past two years.

Program note: Capital Weather Gang chief meteorologist Jason Samenow and technology lead Jamie Jones are among those attending the Bahamas conference, which will feature a variety of expert speakers and presentations. Jason and Jamie will post news, notes and photos from the Bahamas on Friday and Saturday.
