Hurricanes & Tropical Storms - June 2004
No tropical storms or hurricanes developed in June 2004. This is not unusual, with 50% of all Junes in the long-term record registering no tropical activity. Sea surface temperatures (SSTs) were near average across the tropical Atlantic, though above average in a broad band across the North Atlantic from Spain to Florida. Climatologically, if tropical activity occurs in June, it is most likely in the western Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico or far western Atlantic along the U.S. east coast.
