The graphic below shows the formation points of 111 tropical storms during the October 15-31 period from the National Hurricane Center’s historical database that extends from 1851 through 2008.

Note that there are not nearly as many formations over the deep tropical Atlantic as we typically see in August, September, and early October.  The most likely formation areas are over the western Caribbean and the southwest North Atlantic with activity a little more concentrated in the vicinity of the Bahamas.

  1. Hi,

    Just wondering if you could help me. Do you know where to find out, or just know, where the most storm affected areas are in the world (or more closely Australia)?

    Or is you could send me a diagram of a storm formation or development?

    If you did and could email me back that would be great!

    Thanks anyway, Jim!
