Forecasters: Above-average hurricane season coming

AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center meteorologists are predicting a more active 2010 Atlantic hurricane season, with above-normal threats to the U.S. coastline.

"This year has the chance to be an extreme season," forecaster Joe Bastardi said in a statement. "It is certainly much more like 2008 than 2009 as far as the overall threat to the United States' East and Gulf coasts."

Bastardi is forecasting seven landfalls. Five will be hurricanes and two or three of the hurricanes will be major landfalls for the U.S.

He is calling for 16 to 18 tropical storms, 15 of which would be in the western Atlantic or Gulf of Mexico and therefore a threat to land. In a typical season, there are about 11 named storms, of which two to three impact the coast of the United States.
