800 AM EDT THU SEP 1 2022  
 
FOR THE NORTH ATLANTIC...CARIBBEAN SEA AND THE GULF OF MEXICO:  
 
NO TROPICAL CYCLONES FORMED IN THE BASIN DURING AUGUST. THIS IS  
QUITE UNUSUAL AND IS THE FIRST TIME THAT HAS OCCURRED SINCE  
1997, AND IS ONLY THE THIRD TIME THAT HAS HAPPENED SINCE 1950.  
BASED ON A 30-YEAR CLIMATOLOGY (1991-2020), 3 OR 4 NAMED STORMS  
TYPICALLY DEVELOP IN AUGUST, WITH ONE OR TWO OF THEM BECOMING  
HURRICANES. A MAJOR HURRICANE FORMS IN AUGUST EVERY 1 TO 2  
YEARS. NO HURRICANES HAVE FORMED IN THE BASIN SO FAR THIS SEASON.  
 
IN TERMS OF ACCUMULATED CYCLONE ENERGY (ACE), WHICH MEASURES THE  
STRENGTH AND DURATION OF TROPICAL STORMS AND HURRICANES, ACTIVITY  
IN THE BASIN SO FAR IN 2022 HAS BEEN WELL BELOW AVERAGE COMPARED  
TO THE LONG-TERM (1991-2020) MEAN. THE ACE TO DATE IS ONLY  
9 PERCENT OF THE MEDIAN ACE FROM THE LONG-TERM CLIMATE PERIOD  
(1991-2020), AND IS THE 2ND-LOWEST ACE TO DATE IN THE SATELLITE  
ERA (1967-2022). ONLY 1988 HAD LOWER ACE THROUGH THE END OF AUGUST.  
 
REPORTS ON INDIVIDUAL CYCLONES, WHEN COMPLETED, ARE AVAILABLE AT  
THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER WEBSITE AT
