MONTHLY TROPICAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
800 AM EDT MON AUG 01 2016

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

No tropical cyclones formed in the Atlantic basin in July.  Based on
a 30-year (1981-2010) climatology, one named storm typically forms
in the Atlantic basin in July, with a hurricane forming about once
every other year.

In terms of the Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE), which measures the
combined strength and duration of tropical storms and hurricanes,
activity in the Atlantic basin so far in 2016 is above normal.

Reports on individual cyclones, when completed, are available at the
National Hurricane Center website at
