Fort Collins, Colo. - Expect a busy hurricane season.

Colorado State University's William Gray, Ph.D. expects to see 18 named storms. He thinks nine of those will turn into hurricanes, four of them major hurricanes.

Gray considers this above average activity.  He thinks activity will be above average because for two reasons.
