The 1982 Atlantic hurricane season officially began on June 1, 1982, and lasted until November 30, 1982. It was a below average season that produced eight storms (of which one was subtropical), three hurricanes, and one major hurricane. The season featured the third lowest number of named storms in a single season since official naming began in 1950. The season started earlier than the official beginning on June 1 with Tropical Storm Alberto forming on May 27. Alberto was the first named storm in May since Hurricane Agnes in 1972.
The following names were used for systems that attained at least tropical storm intensity in the north Atlantic during 1982. This was the first year that this set of names was used since the post-1978 naming change except for Florence and Helene, which had previously been used in 1954, 1958, 1960, and 1964. Names that were not used are marked in gray.
