Tropical activity slows as hurricane season draws to a close

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — The 2022 Atlantic hurricane season is coming to a close and the tropics are finally starting to calm down.

The National Hurricane Center said in a forecast Wednesday that no new tropical cyclones are expected in the Atlantic basin in the next five days. The announcement came as welcome news to those in the Southeast still reeling from Hurricanes Jan and Nicole.

Although the Atlantic basin is currently empty, it is important to note that hurricane season is still two weeks away. The season officially ends on Wednesday, November 30 this year.

So is there any chance we could still see activity in the next two weeks?

“While it’s not impossible to see tropical development with just two weeks left in this year’s hurricane season, it’s unlikely,” said WFLA meteorologist Rebecca Barry. “The GFS is hinting that we could see a low over the mid-Atlantic — a fish storm, if you will — but no other forecast models are taking that into account, which means it probably won’t happen.”

“I think it’s safe to start looting batteries and snacks from your hurricane preparedness supplies,” she added.
