Headlined by Florence and Michael, a second straight destructive Atlantic hurricane season wraps up


Today is the last official day of the Atlantic hurricane season. Since I started casually writing and sharing updates on tropical Atlantic activity in 1996, I've written approximately 1,200 posts spanning 361 tropical cyclones, including 171 hurricanes, 77 major hurricanes, and 44 retired storm names. I was honored to have been invited to write blog posts for the New York Times for four years and then for the Washington Post for seven years and counting.  Thank you for your continued interest!

The season summary is available on the Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang blog at:
