2014 Hurricane Season Summary
Posted December 1, 2014
The National Hurricane Center reports below average activity this season with 8 named storms, of which 6 became hurricanes, and two of those hurricanes were major storms. Strong wind shear, dry descending air throughout the Atlantic and fewer tropical waves coming off the African coast due to a below average monsoon season in Africa can be attributed to a quiet season. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 - November 30.
We can't say the same for the Eastern Pacific...the 2014 season was extremely active with 20 named storms, of which 14 became hurricanes, and 8 of those reached major hurricane strength. The Eastern Pacific hurricane season runs from May 15 - November 30.
