Tropical Activity for June 2012

One year ago this month, it should be noted that two tropical storms, one named Hurricane Chris and the other Tropical Storm Debby, formed in the basin during June of 2012. It is not as unusual as previously thought that there was no tropical activity this month so far. If you look at the averages for the last 30 years to 2010, named storms would form in June just about once every other year. Also noted hurricanes form in the basin once every 7 or 8 years. But last year, Tropical Storm Debby which formed on June 23, 2012, became the earliest formation of four named storms on record in the basin. 
Last year marked the highest tropical activity in the last 30 years, and was "considered the highest value for any year since 1968."
So what will happen this year? One thing is just about certain is that something will happen. Whether or not the storms will reach the U.S. mainland is just a question that will be answered maybe sooner or later. 
Next weekend, most families in the U.S. will celebrate Fathers day, but I'm almost willing to bet that a named storm will be on the radar before then.
