Hurricane expert William Gray has slightly downgraded his forecast, calling for four named storms in October and November, including two hurricanes-one of them major.
Gray's team at Colorado State University had predicted five named storms in its earlier October-November forecast.
In their first forecast for the 2007 season, issued April 3rd, Gray and his team predicted a "very active" season, with 17 named storms -- including nine hurricanes, five of them "major."
As of yesterday, a total of 13 named storms, including four hurricanes, had developed.
Two of those hurricanes were major.
The Atlantic hurricane season generally runs from June through November.
Gray has been forecasting hurricanes for more than two decades, and emergency responders and others in coastal areas watch his predictions closely.
