There’s a saying in England that buses always come in two’s, usually heard from people who’ve been standing at a bus stop for a long time. It seems hurricane forecasters have heard it too.

William Gray’s team have predicted 14 tropical storms in the atlantic basin in 2009 with 7 developing into hurricanes. 3 of those hurricanes are predicted to be severe with a rank of 3 or higher on the Saffir-Simpson scale.
