By comparison, the years from 1981 to 2010 averaged 12 named storms. After an unexpectedly tame 2013 season that saw 13 tropical cyclones but no hurricanes above a Category 1 on the Saffir-Simpson scale, the Meteorology Team at Earth Networks – WeatherBug is forecasting a 2014 Atlantic hurricane season with average-to-below-average storm activity.
