The Atlantic hurricane season begins today.

The season officially begins today, and will end on November 30, 2018.

Worldwide, tropical cyclone activity peaks in late summer, when the difference between temperatures aloft and sea surface temperatures is the greatest. However, each particular basin has its own seasonal patterns. 

The Atlantic hurricane season is the period in a year when hurricanes usually form in the Atlantic Ocean.

So far this year there has already been on storm, Alberto.
