June 1st is the official start of the hurricane season, however the last 6 years have each had a named storm in May. The National Hurricane Center is considering moving the start date up to May 15th to match the Eastern Pacific Ocean. The Atlantic hurricane season ends November 30th. - Phillip Williams
