Monthly Tropical Weather Summary
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
800 AM EDT Sun Sep 1 2019

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

Tropical cyclone activity during August was near average for the
Atlantic basin, with three named storms forming during the month and
one of them, Dorian, becoming a major hurricane.  Based on a 30-year
climatology (1981-2010), three named storms typically form in the
basin in August, with one or two of them becoming hurricanes, and
one of them becoming a major hurricane.

In terms of Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE), which measures the
combined strength and duration of tropical storms and hurricanes,
activity in the Atlantic basin so far in 2019 is near normal.

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