A tropical wave in the caribbean developed into Tropical Depression One on May 19 at 1600 UTC. This depression strengthened into a tropical storm named Alberto at 2300 UTC. On May 21, Alberto attained its peak of 65 mph and 990 mbar. Alberto made landfall in northern Colombia and rapidly weakened to 30 mph Tropical Depression. By May 23, it became extratropical. It caused $40000 in damage.
A extratropical cyclone became subtropical on May 26 and was called Subtropical Depression Two near the Bahamas. Later that day, Two strengthened to a subtropical storm, given the name "Beryl".

A tropical wave out in the Atlantic developed straight to Tropical Storm Chris on June 25. Chris strengthened to a hurricane, the first of the season, on June 27. Chris had to deal with wind shear preventing it to develop to a Category 2 hurricane. However Chris went into the Caribbean Sea with low wind shear and strengthened on June 29. On June 30, the National Hurricane Center said that Chris will hit Jamaica at 105 mph but it never happened. Chris became a major hurricane on July 1. It was predicted to strike Yucatan on July 3 and weakened but Chris moved into the Gulf of Mexico. Chris attained its peak as a Category 4 on July 6. Chris made landfall in southern Louisiana on July 8. On July 12, this was the time when Chris dissipated. Chris had caused $1.4 billion in damages especially in southern Louisiana.
A low pressure area developed into a tropical depression numbered Four. Four strengthened to Tropical Storm Debby. Debby strengthened to a hurricane. Shortly after, Debby weakened back to a Tropical Storm and then dissipated.
A tropical wave out in the Atlantic became Subtropical Depression Five. Five became tropical and shortly after strengthened into tropical storm Ernesto. Ernesto strengthened into a hurricane on July 8. Ernesto went northeast and weakened on July 10. Ernesto dissipated 4 days later.

Then on August 3, it was a Category 5, second of the five "female Category 5s." Helene's pressure dropped from 1007 mbar to 899 mbar from August 1 to August 3. On August 6 it rapidly weakened to a Tropical Depression, recording a rise of pressure from 899 mbar to 1011 mbar. It dissipated on August 11.
On August 10, Tropical Depression Ten formed over the Bahamas. Ten moved and intesified to become Tropical Storm Isaac. Isaac then made landfall in the outer banks on August 12. It dissipated on August 13. It caused $100 million in damages.
On August 30, a tropical wave traveled through Africa and was given a 100% chance of developing into a tropical depression over the next five day.

It dissipated on September 10.
Oscar formed on September 15 at 00:15 UTC. Oscar strengthened into a hurricane on September 17. Oscar weakened and became an extratropical low. Oscar's remnants became an Extratropical Depression and then got absorbed.
