NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is getting ready to announce its forecast for the Atlantic hurricane season.

Administrator Kathryn Sullivan will join Joe Nimmich of the Federal Emergency Management Administration and New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu at a news conference Wednesday.

Hurricane season officially runs June 1 through Nov. 30. But this season's first storm, Tropical Storm Ana, came earlier this month.

University of Colorado scientists William Gray and Philip Klotzenbach said in April they expect one of the least active seasons since the mid-20th century.

It's the 10th hurricane season since Katrina and Rita slammed the Gulf Coast.
