November has already pulled out Sean, He got close to hurricane status just like a few of the first 8 Named storms of the season did, but couldn't pull it out after the front began to impact him...
This season has already pulled 18 named storms out of the Atlantic, and possibly 19 if 93L is qualified as an unnamed STS in the offseason.
The season isn't over yet, with a interesting SW caribbean low lurking, and the models latching onto an extratopical type system, that could make a run at STS status in the open Atlantic. 20 Named storms is not out of reach just yet.
My forecast for the remainder of the Season:
1-2 Named system(s)
My forecast back in April:
17 Named storms
5 Major Hurricanes
My forecast back in August:
18-19 Named storms
3-5 Major Hurricanes
18 Named storms
3 Major Hurricanes
My 2011 Post-season anaylisys will be posted later in the week...
