    The 2007 Atlantic hurricane season was an event in the annual cycle of tropical cyclone formation. It officially started June 1, 2007, and ended November 30, 2007, dates that conventionally delimit the period when most tropical cyclones form in the Atlantic basin during the year. However, the formation of Subtropical Storm Andrea on May 9, 2007 marked an earlier beginning to the season, and the season extended past the official end of the season when Tropical Storm Olga developed on December 11.

    On August 20, Hurricane Dean was upgraded to category 5 status and made landfall at that strength on the Mexican Yucatán Peninsula. When Hurricane Felix reached category 5 status, 2007 became one of four recorded Atlantic seasons that have had more than one category 5 storm — the others being 1960, 1961 and 2005 — and the only time two Atlantic hurricanes have ever made landfall at Category 5 strength in the same season. Hurricane Humberto also became the fastest developing storm on record to be so close to land. It strengthened from a 35 mph (55 km/h) tropical depression to a 90 mph (150 km/h) hurricane in 14 hours while 15 miles (24 km) off the coast of Texas. September had a record tying 8 storms, but the strengths and durations of the storms were low. Hurricane Humberto became the first hurricane to make landfall in the U.S. since Hurricane Wilma in 2005. [1]

    Dean, Felix and Noel have been retired from the Atlantic and have been replaced by Dorian, Fernand and Nestor for 2013:


    Personally, I do not like the choice Dorian. Sounds too similar to the devestating Durian of the 2006 West Pacific season for my liking.

    Yeah my perfect system would be something like hurricane Karl or hurricane Gert from 1999, both really powerful hurricanes which looked amazing but didn't cause any damage and loss of life.

    As for the replacement names, well to be fair Rina and Katia that replaced Katrina and Rita are rather close aren't they...(note KAT-RINA...spooky!)

    Think this is going to be a fairly active season, with some long lasting Cape Verde season.
