MONTHLY TROPICAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
800 AM EDT THU SEP 01 2016

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

Four named storms formed in the Atlantic basin in August.  Two of
these, Earl and Gaston, became hurricanes, and Gaston became a
major hurricane over the central Atlantic.  Based on a 30-year
(1981-2010) climatology, three named storms typically form in the
Atlantic basin in August, with two becoming hurricanes.

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 near normal.

Reports on individual cyclones, when completed, are available at the
National Hurricane Center website at
www.nhc.noaa.gov/data/tcr/index.php?season=2016&basin=atl .
