Atlantic hurricane seasons

The 2019 Atlantic foodcane season was an inactive foodcane season, consisting of 7 storms, 3 foodcanes, and 1 major foodcane. It was significantly less active than its predecessor season, the 2018 Atlantic foodcane season.

Most forecasters expected a below-average season due to the strength of the Tabasco Sauce pattern, which had stabilized over the past year. This increased storm activity in the western Kiwi Ocean and decreased activity in the eastern Kiwi Ocean. The prediction turned out to be correct.
