The 2022 Atlantic hurricane season marks the halfway point with the slowest start in 30 years, but projections of above-average hurricane activity are still projected.
Since the season began on June 1, there have been only three named storms and one hurricane.
According to Colorado State University meteorologist Philip Klotzbach, there were no named storms in August because storm activity was unusually low.
Since 1950 (1962, 1967, 1977, 1982, 2022), only five times the Atlantic Ocean has not had a named storm (e.g., tropical storm or # Hurricane) 7/3-8/26 activities. However, the Atlantic is likely to get even busier in the next few days. pic.twitter.com/MJ0XTXhvuY
