Just how stormy will this year's hurricane season be? Jeff Masters, director of meteorology at the Web site Weather Underground, will give his 2007 predictions during a free Friday lecture at Eckerd College, 4200 54th Ave. S. Masters, who cofounded www.wunderground.com, used to be a "hurricane hunter" with NOAA's Aircraft Operations Center. He'll also chat about what it was like to fly into Hurricane Hugo, the Category 5 hurricane of 1989. The event, which is open to the public, starts at 4 p.m. in the Raymond James Room at Fox Hall.
