FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) -- Hurricane expert William Gray says there will be four named storms in October and November. He says two of them will be hurricanes, and one of them major.

That's a reduction from his previous forecast. Gray's team at Colorado State University had predicted five named storms in their earlier forecast for the two months.

In April, Gray had predicted a very active 2007 season, with 17 named storms, including nine hurricanes, with five of them major hurricanes.

As of Oct. 1, a total of 13 named storms had developed, including four hurricanes. Two of the hurricanes were major.

Eight named storms formed in September in the Atlantic basin, tying a record set in 2002 for the most in that month.

Gray's team revises the forecast throughout the hurricane season, which lasts from June through November.
