2022 hurricane season
The shaded area on the graphic is where a storm could develop and is not a track. The National Hurricane Center releases a track when a tropical depression forms or is about to form. The categories, in order of increasing strength, are tropical depression, tropical storm and hurricane (categories 1 through 5). Systems are named when they develop into a tropical storm. The next available name is Fiona. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 through Nov. 30, but systems can form at any time.
Only the ships at sea need to worry.
