2010 Seasonal Hurricane Forecasts -- Another Skill Update

Ryan Maue provides an update (see the figure above) of the evolution of the current hurricane season as compared to the seasonal forecasts.  The seasonal forecasts are looking pretty good at this point, with total ACE at about 107 as of today.

Hurricane trivia: There are presently three hurricanes in the Atlantic.  The only two years to see 4 hurricanes in the Atlantic at once are 1893 and 1998.  (Courtesy of Max Mayfield and Phil Klotzbach)
