Colorado State University forecasters expect a "slightly above-average" Atlantic hurricane season in 2018, according to a report released Thursday (April 5). The report predicts the 2018 season, which begins June 1 and lasts until Nov. 30, will see a total of 14 named storms, seven of which are expected to be hurricanes. \Last year, they said it would be "above normal." Is that different? I hope that's different.
