With no major hurricane making landfall yet, the 2013 season is turning out to be the slowest on record.
“We've had a lot of dry air coming into the Atlantic, which has kind of suppressed it a little bit,” says Jill Hasling at Houston's Weather Research Center.
That's no excuse to let our guard down though.
“Waves are starting to be a little bit more active, we've got one coming off of Africa right now,” Hasling tells KTRH News.
The actual peak of hurricane season is September 10, and Ike didn't make landfall until the 13th.
“Its a little too early to write off the hurricane season,” she says. “Remember, if one hits your area then you feel like you've had an active hurricane season.”
