Hurricane season ends next week

The official end of the Atlantic hurricane season is Nov. 30.
The Atlantic Hurricane Season areas included the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea.
With only one week left of the official season, experts are not expecting anymore life threatening storms for this year. However, currently there is a little disturbance (a couple hundred miles East of the Bahamas) in the Atlantic Basin and experts are giving the disturbance a 20 percent chance of forming cyclone by Thanksgiving.
Typically, hurricane season last from June 1 to Nov. 30. However, this year two storms formed before June 1. In total, the Atlantic Hurricane Season has seen 30 named storms this year. This year has been a historical hurricane season as the entire list of names the Hurricane Center had scheduled for use for the year and numerous greek alphabet to name additional storms.
The pacific weather phenomenon of La Nina, leaves experts to speculate will remain in place, therefore, usually creating a warm and dry winter for Louisiana and the rest of the Gulf South.
It should be noted, the Gulf South may experience some cold weather, but it should not be prolonged outbreaks of cold weather. La Nina is also more likely to create large hurricanes in the warmer months.
