When and Where Do Hurricanes Likely Occur?
Hurricane season in the Atlantic Runs from June 1st to November 30th
However, storms outside of these dates aren't unheard of. Activity ramps up in August, and peaks in September, and again in October.
Hurricanes form during this season because of two factors: warm ocean waters (80 degrees or higher) and weak vertical winds (little change in wind direction and/or speed with height) is most common. This is the season with the highest frequency of west-moving weather disturbances in the tropics that develop into hurricanes.
The difference between a hurricane, cyclone, and typhoon is the location your in. People refer to thunderstorms as hurricanes, while people near the equator in Africa and Australia refer to them as cyclones.
