MONTHLY TROPICAL WEATHER SUMMARY
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
800 AM EDT TUE SEP 01 2015

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

Three tropical cyclones formed in the Atlantic basin during August,
with one, Danny, strengthening into a major hurricane.  Based on a
30-year (1981-2010) climatology, one named storm typically forms in
the Atlantic basin in August, with a hurricane occurring about once
every other year.

In terms of the Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE), which measures the
combined strength and duration of tropical storm and hurricanes,
activity in the Atlantic basin so far in 2015 has been below normal.

Reports on individual cyclones, when completed, are available at the
National Hurricane Center website at
www.nhc.noaa.gov/data/tcr/index.php?season=2015&basin=atl.
