Any weather forcast more than four days in the future is a predication based on what has occurred before during similar conditions ie - it's a guess.
Nobody predicated the weather we've all experienced during the last winter and spring, snow in Salt Lake City, Utah last week for example.
The best predication I heard about the upcoming hurricane season was "yup we probable will have some"

These aren’t forecasts or predictions, they are seasonal “outlooks”.

NOAA is projecting a 70 percent probability of the following ranges:

* 14 to 23 Named Storms (top winds of 39 mph or higher), including:
* 8 to 14 Hurricanes (top winds of 74 mph or higher), of which:
* 3 to 7 could be Major Hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of at least 111 mph)

Klotzbach and Gray (Tropical Meteorology Project at Colorado State University)
estimate that 2010 will have about 8 hurricanes (average is 5.9), 15 named storms (average is 9.6), 75 named storm days (average is 49.1), 35 hurricane days (average is 24.5), 4 major (Category 3-4-5) hurricanes (average is 2.3) and 10 major hurricane days (average is 5.0).

The 2010 hurricane season in the eastern Pacific Ocean began on May 15, 2010 and will end on November 30, 2010. The first tropical storm in the eastern Pacific will be named Agatha. The earlier start time in the eastern Pacific reflects how this basin typically turns active faster than the Atlantic. On average, June 9 is when the first tropical storm is named in the eastern Pacific. In the Atlantic, that date is July 10.
