CSU forecasters see increased number of Atlantic storms

MIAMI (Reuters) - Colorado State University researchers on Friday raised their forecast for the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season to 13 tropical storms, with five hurricanes and two 'major' hurricanes.

That was up from its April forecast of 10 tropical storms, with four strengthening into hurricanes and two becoming major hurricanes during the six-month season that began on Friday.
