Conditions will remain favorable for tropical storms and hurricanes to form over the Atlantic for several more weeks, according to AccuWeather.com.
There have been 15 tropical storms, 10 hurricanes and five major hurricanes so far in the 2017 Atlantic season, which started in June and lasts through Nov. 30.
"Since the satellite era began during the early 1960s, 2017 is the only year where there have been 10 consecutive hurricanes in the Atlantic basin," according to AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski.
As warmth persists over much of the southern and eastern United States this month, so too will the potential for additional tropical storms and hurricanes to form and track near populated areas.
"I think there will be at least two more tropical storms, of which one or two can become a hurricane into December," Kottlowski said.
"There is still a chance of one more major (Category 3) hurricane."
