(Worthy News) - A team of meteorologists, who predicted an above-average 2018 Atlantic hurricane season in April, decreased their forecast on Tuesday.

Colorado State University forecasters Philip Klotzbach and Michael Bell released their July forecast, predicting a total of 11 named tropical storms during the 2018 season -- four that will likely become hurricanes.

"We have decreased our forecast and now believe that 2018 will have below-average activity," the report said. "The tropical and subtropical Atlantic is currently much colder than normal, and the odds of a weak El NiƱo developing in the next several months have increased." [ Source: UPI (Read More...) ]
