Storyandreanoaa The first hurricane (okay, it’s just a tropical storm right now, and probably will stay that way) of the season has arrived.

Earlier than expected.

More to come, I’m sure.  As a matter of fact:

Two national hurricane experts say they expect an especially active storm season in the Atlantic this year, with one predicting 17 tropical storms and hurricanes.

Philip Klotzbach, a research associate at Colorado State University, and Joe Bastardi, the chief hurricane forecaster for AccuWeather Inc., acknowledged Tuesday that similar predictions for the 2006 season were wrong but still think there will be a more active storm cycle this year.
