With the Gulf coast still recovering from Hurricane Katrina, Colorado State University researchers say they expect more above-average storm activity the next two months.

Hurricane forecasters William Gray and Philip Klotzbach say there's a 43 percent that an intense hurricane will hit the U.S. coast this month -- well above average.

The CSU team predicts four hurricanes, including two major hurricanes for September -- and two hurricanes, with one major hurricane, in October.

That's in line with forecasts by the National Hurricane Center.

The Atlantic hurricane season has already seen 13 named storms, with half the season still to come.

Typically, there are about ten such storms each season.
