|This is a special section for the North Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 through November 30 each year. In this section, details on the list of storm names for the current season (or last season if between seasons), satellite imagery of any activity, currently active tropical cyclones (if any), hot tropical news topics, and even hurricane chasing / tropical cyclone intercept plans! Be sure to visit this page during the tropical season for the Atlantic, or even if there is any activity, especially during the period between June 1 and November 30 each year for up to the minute updates when activity is the greatest!|
The images above shows any current tropical cyclone activity for both the Eastern Pacific (EPAC) and North Atlantic (NATL) basins, and is updated most frequently during the normal hurricane seasons for each (EPAC is May 15 through November 30 and NATL is from June 1 through November 30). Click the images above to go to the NHC site for more information on the tropical activity. The data has been provided by the National Hurricane Center (from www.nhc.noaa.gov) and may be subject to availability.

Refer to the table below for any tropical activity in the North Atlantic basin for the current time. The table is updated in a timely fashion and shows current tropical cyclone activity as well as any tropical cyclone / hurricane chasing plans. This table will not be updated outside of the normal North Atlantic hurricane season (June through November) unless there is activity.

The 2012 Hurricane season for the North Atlantic basin started on June 1, 2012 and ended on November 30, 2012. The 2012 North Atlantic hurricane season is officially over and a total of 19 named storms have developed. The 2012 season was above average, but had generally less intense storms due to a developing El Niņo pattern and a near-normal North-Atlantic Oscillation (NAO). This page will be updated again with the arrival of the 2013 hurricane season for the Atlantic, of if any "extra-seasonal" activity occurs.
