      Hump day for hurricane season and still no hurricanes

      This graph breaks down the activity of tropical storms and hurricanes for the Atlantic Basin.

      Columbia (WACH/NHC) -- Hurricane season runs from June 1st through November 30th and 2013 is on track to be one of the quietest seasons on record for the Atlantic Basin.

      September 10th is the peak day of the six month season, and so far we have seen eight tropical storms with none of them reaching hurricane status.

      The latest we have ever gone into a hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin before seeing a storm reach hurricane status was September 11, 2002, when Hurricane Gustav officially became a hurricane at 8:00 a.m. EST.

      As of 3:30 p.m. EST Tuesday, we had two tropical storms in the Atlantic, Gabrielle and Humberto.

      Tropical Storm Humberto has the best chance to reach hurricane status, but the question is will it happen before or after 8:00 Wednesday morning.
