A few choice quotes from the same guy last year:
The upcoming season is pretty ripe when it comes to the conditions storms will have to face this year. Unlike the past seasons, atmospheric conditions are primed and look to be headed for a close-to-perfect setup. Dry air and the Lack of Instability in the Tropics has subsided, and Wind Shear will begin to decrease as the Sub-Tropical Jet lifts away. Trade winds also look like they will be less of a problem compared to previous seasons."
"This means that there will be no El Nino to cripple the Atlantic season from being a bustling active season like the 3 previous seasons.
Outlook for Storms = Great"
Basically, the season is poised to be an active and dangerous season with many long tracking deep tropical systems forming in the MDR. With increased height anomalies along with cooler SST's in the subtropics to create a more divergent/higher pressure aloft, many of these system that form will become landfalling storms. This said, a sharply increased risk of Major Hurricane Landfalls along the Gulf and Southeast coasts of the US are expected. "
"There is little doubt that this season may break our drought of having a Major Hurricane hit the US coastline, but even if there isn't one. Make sure you're prepared. Make a plan, be ready. This season might just be a doozy."
As I always say, these guys have a hard time telling me if it is going to rain a few days from now (sometimes even the next day). I don't put a lot of stock in some random guy who blew the last few calls telling me what is going to happen in 6 months.
