Hurricane season off to quiet start; will it last?

The 2011 Atlantic Hurricane Season is off to a quiet start, but that is really quite typical for June.

Although we can see some June storms, it isn't the rule of thumb.

Things generally tend to become more active as we move into the middle and end of July.

It has been an active start in the east Pacific, with two named storms thus far.

Forecasters are watching an area of disturbed weather about to enter the southern Gulf of Mexico. Right now, there is about a 20 percent chance for some type of development.

On the current track, the weather will move toward Texas. That COULD be a good thing ... as long as it holds together and doesn't develop into anything too wild ... they REALLY need some moisture across the Lone Star State!
