We now have the fourth named storm of the 2010 season:
MIAMI – Tropical Storm Danielle has formed in the Atlantic, but the system is still far from land.
Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday that Danielle had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph) and the storm is expected to strengthen over the next couple of days.
The National Hurricane Center recently revised their forecast to:
14 to 20 named tropical storms
The season runs from June through November; 6 months. We are nearly finished with August; half way. That means we should have seen 7-10 by now. We’re at 4.
Eight to 12 storms could become hurricanes…
So far we have zero, we should be near 4-6 by now.
