A noted hurricane researcher is calling for eight hurricanes in the Atlantic this year, four of them major.

Tuesday's forecast calls for a very active season, with 15 named storms. William Gray, a former Colorado State University climatologist, pioneered the seasonal predictions in 1984.

The revised outlook from the Colorado State University researchers is the same as their April forecast.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration last month forecast 12 to 16 named storms, including six to nine hurricanes.
