Colorado forecasters call for 4 hurricanes in Sept.

FORT COLLINS ” Colorado hurricane researchers are forecasting five tropical storms in the Atlantic this month, including four hurricanes, two of them major.

Former Colorado State University climatologist William Gray said Tuesday that would be nearly twice as busy as an average September. Gray has been issuing hurricane forecasts at Colorado State University for 25 years.

Four Atlantic hurricanes have been recorded so far this season: Bertha and Dolly in July, Gustav in August and Hanna in September.

The team’s latest predictions cover only September and are not a revision of its season-long forecast. The team’s most recent seasonal prediction, issued Aug. 5, called for a total of nine Atlantic hurricanes during the June 1-Nov. 30, 2008, season.
