In less than 2 months we will enter the 2010 Hurricane Season. While activity does not really begin to pick up until usually early August, Hurricane Forecasters are predicting a much more active 2010 Atlantic Hurricane Season than 2009, with 15 named storms, 8 hurricanes and 4 major hurricanes (Cat 3 or higher) as predicted by Colorado state forecasters Gray & Klotsbach.
The GOES 13 East Satellite was launched by NOAA today, and is going to orbit the area where most of our Atlantic systems develop. It’s pretty exciting stuff. To read more on the GOES 13 Satellite, check out the link above.
