Crunch time for the Season and the Texas coast

Posted: Wednesday, August 6, 2014 4:03 pm

The period between Aug. 1 and Sept. 22 is usually the most active part of the hurricane season. How we fare during this crucial period often determines what kind of season we will have locally.

Since 2000, the Atlantic Basin has averaged 7.7 named storms during that part of August and September, with the fewest (five) occurring in 2003 and 2009 and the greatest number occurring (11) in 2004. With one August storm (Bertha) heading for the North Atlantic, we might expect at least four more named storms between now and the end of the third week of September, even if this is a “quiet” year.
