Tropical Outlook: Very Bad

NOAA came out with their Hurricane Season outlook yesterday, and maaannnn is it awful looking.
They predict a 70 percent probability of 14 to 23 Named Storms (top winds of 39 mph or higher), including:
8 to 14 Hurricanes (top winds of 74 mph or higher), of which:
3 to 7 could be Major Hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of at least 111 mph) .
To put this in scope, this was about the same outlook as the year of Hurrican Katrina.
Full details HERE.
Also, an interesting post by NOAA on about how "Hurricanes Vs the Oil Spill". Check it out HERE.
