How long does hurricane season last?

    Officially, the Atlantic hurricane season is from 1 June to 30 November, but as the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) notes: “There is nothing magical in these dates, and hurricanes have occurred outside of these six months, but these dates were selected to encompass over 97% of tropical activity.” Of course Mother Nature isn’t reading any calendars, and every once in a while a tropical cyclone hits out of season — usually in May or December– or late in the season: Hurricane Wilma, for instance, battered Cancun and the Riviera Maya on October 21 and 22 2005. Early to mid-September is the pinnacle for hurricane season.
