When is Hurricane Season over

does anyone know when it is officially over? I'm thinking a last minute trip to Sanibel maybe take advantage of better rates and less traffic.

If you scroll through this link, you can see how risks change during the "season". There's still a bit of risk for the next couple of weeks, then there's outside chances of something happening. I was once in Oregon on Veterans' Day, wondering whether I'd have to hurry home to shutter the house.

So you missed the Dec storm just some years back?

Can't remember the name, but remember it hit punta gorda pretty bad.

Its the pattern the storms are going this year.

They are all turning North in the same pattern.

They must start low pass under P.R-under- D.R come thru Cuba and fire up again to hurt S.W.F in my opinion-Not gonna happen this year.

Now as far as storms I sat on my porch while Charley pass 6 years ago so I know what a storm can be for this area.

I think it was a TS by the time it hit, but my friends place off Burnt Store Rd had damage. It was around dec 12-14 if I remember right.

Records suggest TS Olga hit the west coast Dec 11-12, 2007 causing 25 direct deaths. Officially, Atlantic hurricane season is June 1st to Nov 30th with maximum activity typically early to mid Sept. It's a good strategy in my opinion. Certainly still warm enough and rates are better. We often take advantage of staying at the beach this time of year - good rates, low crowds
