Slow Tropical Season

Here we are on the first day of October, and we have had just 5 named storms.

Growing up on the Texas Gulf Coast, I have been through my share of tropical storms and hurricanes including Ike and Rita. So… you certainly won’t find me complaining about the lack of activity.

I was curious, however, if it is unusual to make it this far in the season with just 5 named storms.

Of course I took to R for the answer!  The last time we made it this far into the hurricane season with so few named storms was 1997!
