Report Card: Typhoon Times 2007 Forecasts

So how did I do in 2007? (I'm sure the whole world is wanting to know!) Well, not too bad. In some ways worse than the Colorado State forecast, in some ways better.

The data (Atlantic & East Pacific):

Tropical Storms (Atlantic):

Typhoon Times: 19
Colorado State: 17
Actual: 17

Hurricanes (Atlantic):

Typhoon Times: 8
Colorado State: 9
Actual: 5

Tropical Storms (East Pacific):

Typhoon Times: 21
Actual: 19

Hurricanes (East Pacific):

Typhoon Times: 8
Actual: 4

Could hae been worse, could have been better. I'd give myself a solid "C".
