Forcasters Look Beyond the Sunny Days of Summer

Forecasters Expect 5 Big Hurricanes

At least five major hurricanes with winds of more 
than 111 miles per hour are expected to develop in 
the Atlantic during the 2011 storm season, 
Colorado State University forecasters said yesterday.

Overall, some 16 named storms are likely, with nine of them reaching hurricane status — an above-average season, said the forecasters led by William Gray and Phil Klotzbach. 
The forecast reduces by one the group’s 
preliminary December outlook for 17 named storms.
