Tropical activity peaks in September, with longer-track storms developing off of the west African coast. Development is most likely as tropical waves approach the Leeward Islands. Most storms that develop in this region tend to take northerly turn toward Bermuda. Storms that make it into the Caribbean sea have a greater chance of traveling into the Gulf of Mexico.
