AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center meteorologists, led by Chief Long-Range and Hurricane Forecaster Joe Bastardi, have released an expanded hurricane season forecast for 2009.

“As we predicted in our early season forecast, we’re anticipating a major reduction in the number of overall storms compared to last year,” said Bastardi. “Levels may be as low as 2006 or perhaps lower.
