Are You Ready for Hurricane Season?

June 29, 2020

For the 2020 hurricane season, COVID-19 considerations are complicating the storm preparations being made by business aircraft operators and airport managers, all the way from the Gulf Coast to the Eastern Seaboard.

It’s nearly a unanimous forecast across all the meteorological organizations, including NOAA, who have put out their seasonal forecast,” says Kathryn Prociv, CCM, producer and meteorologist for NBC News. “The consensus is for an above-average hurricane season, in terms of number of named storms, which they’re saying would be more than the average of 12. And in terms of major hurricanes, the National Hurricane Center and NOAA are predicting three to six major hurricanes, defined as Category 3 or higher, and the average is [usually] three.”

In this episode of NBAA’s Flight Plan, host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Kathryn Prociv, a meteorologist and producer with NBC News and co-founder of Monarch Weather Consulting
  • Chris Rozansky, executive director for the Naples (FL) Airport Authority
  • John Kosak, CAM, program manager for weather at NBAA Air Traffic Services
