Weather Facts: Latest hurricane landfall

The hurricane season officially ends on November 30th. The peak time for hurricanes happens late in August and early in September. The tropical activity really tails off in November. Only five percent of tropical systems happen after November 1st.

In 1999, Lenny became the strongest November hurricane on record. It formed into a Category 4 with winds of 150 mph. He got the nickname “Wrong Way Lenny”. Instead of moving west like a normal Hurricane Lenny moved from the Caribbean to the Atlantic.

Gordon was the deadliest November hurricane producing tremendous flooding in Haiti. It weakened as it moved northward but hit Florida three different times.

The latest hurricane landfall happened on November 30, 1925 near Tampa, Florida.
