Monthly Tropical Weather Summary
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Tue Aug 01 2017

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

Two named storms and one unnamed tropical depression formed in the
Atlantic basin in July.  Based on a 30-year climatology (1981-2010),
one named storm typically forms in the basin in July, with a
hurricane forming 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 2017 has been below normal
since all of the tropical cyclones have been relatively weak and
short lived.

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