The Atlantic hurricane season is officially from 1 June to 30 November. There is nothing magical in these dates, and hurricanes have occurred outside of these six months, but these dates were selected to encompass over 97% of tropical activity. June 1st has been the traditional start of the Atlantic hurricane season for decades. However, the end date has been slowly shifted outward, from October 31st to November 15th until its current date of November 30th.

The dangerous time is from August 15-October 25. Otherwise hurricane season is no big deal. Remember, we only get a "big one" every 50-100 years.

just to add to this thread...there is an article out from the national weather service i think everyone in florida,let alone anywhere considered hurricane prone...may want to look at..
in this story, there is an interesting theory between warmer oceans in the pacific/indian oceans..and wind shear over the region of the atlantic where the majority of us landing hurricanes develop..
while just reasearch..the article states that it is quite possible that,because of this,the amount of hurricanes which make landfalls along the gulf and east coast,as well as all around fla. may lessen ...less hurricanes?,....i think floridians especially would welcome that!!!

We all keep an eye for new information. One for sure factor is that we will get a hurricane sooner or later, so planning and revising the plan is key to survive and get back to your home if your area is affected... many excellent threads with advise and checklist for all...

What would be an example of a 'big one'?

A Cat 5 storm is considered the big one.

To the OP, rainy season is Mid-May through November pretty much. The best time to visit Florida is, Jan - April.
