The 2021 Atlantic hurricane season was a well below-average season, featuring 9 named tropical storms, 4hurricanes, and only 1 major hurricane. It officially began on June 1, 2021, and ended on November 30, 2021. These dates historically describe the period each year when most tropical cyclones form in the Atlantic basin. However, tropical cyclogenesis is possible at any time of the year. No tropical storms formed in the month of June, the first time since the 2018 season. The season ended on October 27, over a month before the official end of the season, the earliest end since 2014.
