Quiet Season But BVI Still Has 16% Probability Of Named Storm Within 50 Miles

Earlier in June, hurricane experts from the Colorado State University, Philip J. Klotzbach and William M. Gray, issued an update to their original hurricane forecast showing little change to their initial predictions for the 2015 hurricane season. With an increase in named storms by one, due to the early formation of Tropical Storm Ana in May, they reiterated that we have a 22% chance of a major hurricane tracking in to the Caribbean during the 2015 hurricane season. Their findings, broken down island by island, make interesting reading and caution against complacency.
