Atlantic Hurricane Season Ends

MIAMI (November 30, 2013) Saturday marks the official end of the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season, which produced 13 named storms, two of them hurricanes.

Forecasters predicted a busy year, but 2013 produced the fewest hurricanes in a single year since 1982.

Just one storm, Tropical Storm Andrea, made landfall in the United States.

Experts say drier-than-expected air and persistent conditions in the atmosphere over the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea and tropical Atlantic Ocean led to the weaker season.
