The 2043 Atlantic hurricane season was an active season with many strong storms, although most remained far from land. The season officially began on May 15 and ended on November 30, dates that typically delimit the start and end of the season. The first storm, Abigail, did not form until June 23, however. This season featured 16 named storms, 12 hurricanes and 6 major hurricanes. The high activity was primarily attributed to warm ocean temperatures in the Atlantic and a La Niña event in the equatorial Pacific. 

The Atlantic Main Development Region (MDR) in this season was the warmest on record from the August to October period; most storms formed there and recurved out to sea. However, cooler than normal sea surface temperatures limited activity in the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico. The strongest storm - Jerry - was a category 5 hurricane that did not make landfall.

Tropical Storm Abigail

Tropical storm (SSHWS)

DurationJune 23 – June 26
Peak intensity65 mph (100 km/h) (1-min)  994 mbar (hPa)
On June 22, a broad area of low pressure formed over the Northwestern Caribbean Sea. The low pressure area began to move northwestward the next day towards the Yucatan Peninsula. At 12:00 UTC on June 23, it is estimated that the low developed into Tropical Depression One based on a reconnaissance aircraft finding an elongated but well-defined low-level circulation. 6 hours later, the depression made landfall in southern Quintana Roo. The depression remained intact over land, but did not strengthen. However, by 06:00 UTC on June 24, the depression emerged into the central Gulf of Mexico on a northwestward motion. At 18:00 UTC that same day, an Air Force Hurricane Hunter aircraft found that the cyclone was producing tropical storm force winds in its northeastern quadrant and the depression was upgraded to Tropical Storm Abigail. Low to moderate wind shear allowed further strengthening, and Abigail made landfall at 13:00 UTC on June 25 near Galveston, Texas, with maximum sustained winds of 65 mph and a minimum pressure of 994 mbar. By 00:00 UTC on June 26, Abigail weakened to a tropical depression. At 18:00 UTC that same day, Abigail transitioned into a post-tropical remnant low. The remnant low eventually strengthened into an extratropical cyclone with tropical storm-force winds near northwestern Ohio, before being absorbed by another extratropical cyclone late on June 27.
