FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - A top hurricane expert is downgrading his forecast. William Gray is now predicting four named storms will hit in October and November.
He says two of those storms will be hurricanes and that one of them will be major.
That's down one from what Gray's team had previously forecast.
Back in April, Gray had predicted 2007 would be a "very active" storm season, with 17 named storms. Five of the nine hurricanes that were forecast were predictedto be major.
A total of 13 names storms have developed, including four hurricanes, two of which were major.
The annual hurricane season lasts from June through November.
