The 2010 Atlantic Hurricane Season is rapidly approaching! I think its time we make a game where you try and predict how busy it will be.Some professionals have already made some predictions...(They do not forecast the wind speed part)
CSU: 15-8-4
Accuweather.com: 16-18/7/2-3
Predict the season in this format:

# of Tropical Storms- # of Hurricanes- # of Major Hurricanes- Highest Wind Speed (in MPH)


Contest Closes on May 1, 2010


--------------------
Summary of 2009-2010 winter so far...

First Snow Flurries: December 5

Total Accumulated Snowfall: 7.65"
Lowest High so far: 30
Lowest Low so far: 12.5
# of Frosts( 36F or lower): 94
# of Freezes( 32F or lower): 71
Days with Snow: 12

Eh...let's play with fate I guess, why not:

14 named storms
8 Hurricanes
4 Major Hurrcanes
6 U.S Landfalls

*This has barely any scientifc backing, excpet I have seen the early CSU and Bastardi predictions*

OK my guess

21 Storms

9 Hurricanes

5 Major Hurricanes

1 storm hits mid Atlantic coast

2 storms hit Florida

1 storm hits North Carolina

1 storm hits gulf coast

and my dream guess

A cat 3 enters in Georgia then its turned south into gulf coast then stalls for a few days, then makes its way into Texas as a cat 5.

I know it is a month in but the break down for me.

17 Named Storms, 11 Hurricanes, 6 Major Hurricanes. (20 total depressions = TD, TS, and Cane)

7 Storms will hit the US, 5 Hurricanes, 2 Major.

2 Category 5's over water, no US Cat 5 landfall.

1 Category 4.

Highest wind speed will be 180 mph. Lowest Pressure will be around 27.35".

I know it is closed but thought I would through it out there.
