(In headline and in first sentence, corrects forecast number of named storms to 11-13, not 10)
HOUSTON, May 16 (Reuters) - WeatherBell Analytics LLC meteorologist Joe Bastardi said on Tuesday that 11 to 13 named tropical storms could be expected in the 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season, according to a forecast issued by the company.
The WeatherBell forecast is similar to one issued on April 6 by Colorado State University's Tropical Meteorology Project, which said 2017 should be slightly below average with 11 named storms. (Reporting by Erwin Seba; Editing by Leslie Adler)
