Favorite National Hurricane Center Forecasters

Michael Froomkin is distressed that he has a favorite NHC forecaster:

Discourse.net: Wilma and Franklin Are Funny In Different Ways: [T]hree things are clear:

  1. They don't really have much confidence what this storm is actually going to do. A 1650 nautical mile gap in the five-day forecast is indeed rather heroic. [A nautical mile is 6080 feet or about 1853m.]
  2. Forecaster Franklin really does have a wry sense of humor. He's much more fun to read than the other forecasters.
  3. Things have come to a pretty pass when one has a favorite National Hurricane Center forecaster.
