Here’s When the Atlantic Hurricane Season Typically Ramps Up

  • In August, it’s almost as if a switch is flipped.
  • There’s a 17-day stretch from mid-August to early September during which the most intense U.S. hurricane landfalls all occurred.

Frequently in July, we are asked, “Why has the Atlantic hurricane season been so quiet?” or “When will the hurricane season ramp up?”

The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June through November, but most years, the first two months of the season are typically benign. June averages only one named storm every other year, and July has averaged one named storm per year since 1950.

Then comes August and it’s almost as if a switch is flipped.

August sees more than three times the number of named storms as July, and almost double the number of June and July storms combined. As August progresses, the number of named storms steadily increases.
