Agreeing with Korthie, as you remember 2004 was a El Nino late into the season, and it didn't effect the season, 15 storms still.
Im thinking this year will be identical to 2007 still.

Despite CSU's lowering of this year's numbers, I'm going with what you see above, which is what I've had in mind for this season since around January. I think it's a possibility that a weak El Nino event develops this year, but if it does, I don't think it's going to be as significant as everyone seems to be thinking. Actually, I don't think an El Nino is going to develop at all; we'll be on the warm side of ENSO neutral during the heart of the season.
