2012 hurricane season expected to be less active

Colorado State University’s 2012 Atlantic hurricane season prediction calls for below average activity with 10 named storms of which four would be hurricanes.

CSU’s Bill Gray and Phil Klotzbach say there is a 42 percent chance that at least one major hurricane will make landfall on the U.S. coastline.

The team predicts that a cooler tropical Atlantic and the potential development of El Nino will make the season somewhat below average.

Hurricane season begins June 1 and lasts until Nov. 30.
