  • End of Hurricane Season

    The 2011 Atlantic Hurricane Season came to an end Wednesday and it was another active season, as predicted. The hurricane season runs from June 1st until November 30th and is all because of water temperature. During this period of time, the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico are at least 80 degrees; the critical temperature for tropical storm and hurricane development. Hurricanes do not like cold water and once we get into December, the water temperatures are too cool for tropical development. Cold water is the reason why the west coast does not have to worry about hurricanes. The Pacific Ocean is in the 50s and 60s, which is way too cold for tropical storms.
