On August 1, 2016, the National Hurricane Center issued its latest monthly report on the Atlantic tropical storm season; that report is available online at http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/text/MIATWSAT.shtml. Following is an excerpt from that report: “No tropical cyclones formed in the Atlantic basin in July. Based on a 30-year (1981-2010) climatology, one named storm typically forms in the Atlantic basin in July, with a hurricane forming about 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 2016 is above normal.”
Also from the report for July 2016, here is the NHC’s list of all tropical depressions, tropical storms, and hurricanes this year through July, with their dates of occurrence and maximum wind speeds (abbreviations: H = hurricane; MH = major hurricane; TD = tropical depression; TS = tropical storm):
H Alex – Jan. 13-15 – 85 mph
TS Bonnie – May 27-June 4 – 45 mph
TS Colin – June 5-7 – 50 mph
TS Danielle – June 19-21 – 45 mph
When completed, reports on individual 2016 storms (including tracks) will be available online at http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/data/tcr/index.php?season=2016&basin=atl.
