Lower Storm Activity Expected Through Peak of 2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season

Posted at 1:00 AM ET

A new Guy Carpenter briefing suggests reduced hurricane activity for the peak of the 2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season. However, storms are more likely to develop in the West Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico with a higher threat to land. Since 1950, 100 percent of years saw the occurrence of a September tropical storm, a hurricane in 98 percent of years and a major hurricane in 74 percent of years. A major landfalling U.S. hurricane cannot be ruled out, despite the quiet period of recent weeks.
