NOAA Hurricane Season Outlook
May 26, 2013 | NOAA
"NOAA’s 2013 Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook indicates that an above-normal season is most likely, with the possibility that the season could be very active. The outlook calls for a 70% chance of an above-normal season, a 25% chance of a near-normal season, and only a 5% chance of a below-normal season. Based on the current and expected conditions, combined with model forecasts, we estimate a 70% probability for each of the following ranges of activity during 2013: -- 13-20 Named Storms -- 7-11 Hurricanes -- 3-6 Major Hurricanes Quoted from the NOAA Hurricane Season Outlook.

April 15, 2013 | Colorado State University
"We anticipate an above-average probability for major hurricanes making landfall along the United States coastline and in the Caribbean. Coastal residents are reminded that it only takes one hurricane making landfall to make it an active season for them, and they need to prepare the same for every season, regardless of how much or how little activity is predicted." Quoted from the Colorado State University press release.
