November 30 marks the official end to the Atlantic hurricane season. The 2021 season was the sixth consecutive in a row with above-average activity. It was also the third season ever to exhaust the regular list of 21 names, with 21 named storms, seven of which became hurricanes, and 4 of those became major hurricanes (Category 3 or higher). It was also the seventh consecutive season in which a named storm formed prior to June 1, to the official start of the season, Brian McNoldy, a Senior Research Associate at University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, reports.
By comparison, a normal season has 14 named storms, 7 hurricanes, with three of those major. The Palm Beach Post reported that eight storms breached US shores in 2021, above the 3-4 average, while Florida saw three storms make landfall.
