Fitzpatrick studied and worked under Gray and is familiar with many of the parameters that go into the process for making the hurricane season forecast.

Fitzpatrick discussed these parameters and their impacts for the upcoming season. The presentation was well received. In fact, due to the effects hurricanes can have on the Jackson metropolitan area, WLBT-TV of Jackson covered the meeting and ran an interview with Fitzpatrick on their news programs.
