MONTHLY TROPICAL WEATHER SUMMARY  
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL  
800 AM EST THU DEC 1 2022  
 
FOR THE NORTH ATLANTIC...CARIBBEAN SEA AND THE GULF OF MEXICO:  
 
TROPICAL CYCLONE ACTIVITY IN THE ATLANTIC BASIN DURING NOVEMBER WAS  
ABOVE AVERAGE IN TERMS OF THE NUMBER OF NAMED STORMS AND  
HURRICANES. TWO HURRICANES (MARTIN AND NICOLE) FORMED IN THE BASIN  
DURING NOVEMBER, AND LISA WHICH DEVELOPED IN LATE OCTOBER BECAME A  
HURRICANE EARLY IN NOVEMBER. BASED ON A 30-YEAR CLIMATOLOGY  
(1991-2020), A TROPICAL STORM FORMS IN NOVEMBER EVERY ONE OR TWO  
YEARS. ALTHOUGH MARTIN DID NOT AFFECT LAND AS A TROPICAL CYCLONE,  
NICOLE BECAME A HURRICANE WHEN IT WAS AFFECTING THE NORTHWESTERN  
BAHAMAS, AND IT BECAME THE FIRST NOVEMBER HURRICANE TO MAKE LANDFALL  
IN FLORIDA SINCE KATE IN 1985. LISA ALSO MADE LANDFALL IN BELIZE  
AS A HURRICANE DURING THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER.  
 
OVERALL, THE 2022 ATLANTIC HURRICANE SEASON FEATURED NEAR NORMAL  
ACTIVITY IN TERMS OF THE NUMBER OF NAMED STORMS AND HURRICANES, BUT  
WAS SLIGHTLY BELOW AVERAGE IN TERMS OF THE NUMBER OF MAJOR  
HURRICANES. IN 2022, FOURTEEN NAMED STORMS FORMED, OF WHICH EIGHT  
BECAME HURRICANES, AND TWO BECAME MAJOR HURRICANES - CATEGORY 3 OR  
HIGHER ON THE SAFFIR-SIMPSON HURRICANE WIND SCALE. THIS COMPARES TO  
THE LONG-TERM (1991-2020) AVERAGES OF 14 NAMED STORMS, 7 HURRICANES,  
AND 3 MAJOR HURRICANES. IN TERMS OF ACCUMULATED CYCLONE ENERGY  
(ACE), WHICH MEASURES THE STRENGTH AND DURATION OF TROPICAL STORMS  
AND HURRICANES, ACTIVITY IN THE BASIN IN 2022 WAS SLIGHTLY  
BELOW AVERAGE. THE ACE FOR 2022 IS 80 PERCENT OF THE LONG-TERM  
(1991-2020) MEAN.
