CSU: 2015 Hurricane Season ‘Least Active’ in 50 Years

         Hurricane researchers at the Colorado State University (CSU) Tropical Meteorology Project expect the 2015 Atlantic Basin hurricane season to be “one of the least active seasons since the middle of the 20th century.”

         In its extended range forecast issued April 9, 2015, the team stated it appears “quite likely that an El Niño of at least moderate strength will develop this summer and fall,” which will act to reduce hurricane activity. The forecast team anticipates seven named storms this year, three of which will develop into hurricanes, of which one will be major (Category 3, 4 or 5).

         Overall, the probability of at least one major hurricane making landfall along the entire U.S. coastline is 28 percent (the average for the last 100 years if 52 percent), the forecast team states.
