NOAA Backs Off Hurricane Predictions

A slight revision in the number of hurricanes we’re expecting. NOAA is predicting we won’t see as many as they first thought. Now, the forecast is six to nine hurricanes with three to five of those having winds greater than 110 miles per hour. The update calls for 13 to 19 storms to get a name this season.
