Nick Mesa with the CSU Hurricane Forecast Team said this in an interview:

We’ve never really seen this combination of record-warm temperatures in the Atlantic like we’re seeing now with the combination of a La Niña, or a cooler ENSO period. When we see storms in the deep tropical Atlantic occurring this early in the season, that’s usually an indicator of a very hyperactive season.

There is currently some good news, as of today, the National Hurricane Center doesn't expect any storm formation in the Atlantic Basin for the next seven days.
