The Tropical Meteorology Project of Colorado State University (CSU) in its report released on Wednesday foresees an above-average Atlantic basin tropical cyclone season in 2011 and anticipates an above-average probability of U.S. and Caribbean major hurricane landfall.

The team forecasts 17 named storms will form next year in the Atlantic basin. Nine of the storms will grow into hurricanes, with five of those growing into major hurricanes with sustained winds of at least 111 mph, according to the forecast.

In an average hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to Nov. 30, 9.6 named storms form, with 5.9 growing to hurricane strength, of which 2.3 will become major hurricanes, the CSU team said.
