All is Quiet in the Tropics...Finally

For the first time since September 4th, there is no tropical activity brewing in the Atlantic Basin.

In fact, no new storms are expected over the next five days.  This is good news for Floridians, given many residents that are still picking up the pieces from Hurricanes Hermine and Matthew.  Let’s not forget the two Tropical Storms (Colin and Julia) that also affected Florida.

According to climatology, quiet waters are nothing unusual by this time of year. The season traditionally peaks in early September, but an average of two storms still form during the month of October. By November, tropical cyclone decreases by 75% and a named storm typically only forms every other year.




However, the season is not over yet and with five weeks left, the Florida Public Radio Emergency Network will continue to watch the waters closely.  The season officially ends November 30.
