HOUSTON (Reuters) - WeatherBell Analytics LLC meteorologist Joe Bastardi said on Tuesday that 10 named tropical storms could be expected in the 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season, according to a forecast issued by the company.

The WeatherBell forecast is similar to one issued on April 6 by Colorado State University's Tropical Meteorology Project, which said 2017 should be slightly below average with 11 named storms.
