In the wake of a quiet 2009 Atlantic hurricane season, some meteorologists are predicting an above-average number of Atlantic hurricanes for the 2010 season.

In the annual early extended-range hurricane forecast issued by Colorado State University's Tropical Meteorology Project, meteorologists Philip Klotzbach and William Gray predict 11-16 named storms will develop, six to eight of them hurricanes with three to five of the hurricanes becoming major storms, UPI reports.

"We foresee a somewhat above-average Atlantic basin hurricane season," Gray said. "We anticipate the current El Niño event to dissipate by the 2010 hurricane season and warm sea surface temperatures are likely to continue being present in the tropical and North Atlantic during 2010 - conditions that contribute to an above-average season."
