The 2013 Atlantic Hurricane Season Forecast is Here

What's the outlook for the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season? According to latest report from Phil Klotzbach and William M. Gray (research authorities at the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University), there is some uncertainty.
