I have been pouring through the latest Hurdat2 database, made available from the National Hurricane Center. I have been using climate data to do seasonal forecast work etc. As a part of that work, I have built a seasonal summary table showing the historical number of named storms, hurricanes and major hurricanes.
Data is a big part of the weather world, and obviously a very big part of Hurricane Analytics. For long time, I have envisioned making much of this data available to users for their own research or reference, I just couldn’t find an acceptable way to interface with it…until now.
Check out the data table below! It goes back to 1851, showing this key seasonal summary data. Note that I counted storms in the totals whether or not they were named. I am very interested to know how this works for users, so please send feedback my way!
