The 2013 hurricane season came and went without a single major storm rocking the coast of Florida. In fact, as of November 30, the official end of the season, there had only been 13 storms which was the lowest total since 1982. Of those 13, only two formed into actual hurricanes. The rest were so weak they only qualified as tropical storms. On average there are six legitimate hurricanes every year with three of them qualifying as major storms reaching category 3 or higher. This year, Hurricanes Ingrid and Humberto only reached category 1, the lowest classification for storms. Experts attribute the slow season to a variety of factors including dry air and a cold water front moving in from the eastern Atlantic Ocean into the Caribbean.
