Historically, 90% of all Category 3 or stronger Atlantic Basin hurricanes have happened after August 20.
Last year, 13 of the season’s 21 named storms and four of the seven hurricanes formed after Aug. 20. This included Hurricane Ida, which made a Category 4 landfall in Louisiana, then triggered massive flash flooding in the northeastern United States.
