[Storm tracks, 2007 Atlantic hurricane season.] Well, it's April, and the earliest of the pre-season Atlantic hurricane forecasts have appeared. My latest Daily Green entry parses two sets of predictions that are really quite similar:

Colorado State University: 15 named storms, 8 hurricanes, 4 intense hurricanes, heightened U.S. intense hurricane landfall risk Tropical Storm Risk: 14.8 named storms, 7.8 hurricanes, 3.5 intense hurricanes, heightened U.S. intense hurricane landfall risk

In both 2006 and 2007, the big U.S. landfall didn't happen. But we won't keep on getting lucky....and remember, there have been a staggering 8 Category 5 Atlantic hurricanes in the last 5 years. Read the full Daily Green item here.
