Hurricane Alex (2004)

Hypercane Draco at peak intensity

The 2012 Hogwarts hurricane season was an event in the annual cycle of hurricane formation. The season began on June 1, 2012 and ended on November 30, 2012. However, the season's first storm, Hurricane Albus, formed nearly two months before the official starting date, and the final storm, Hurricane Wilhemina, dissipated over a month before the official end.

The season was exceptionally active, and would not be matched for centuries. This activity was primarily due to a clumsy Hogwarts student who activated the Fire-Making Spell on Hogwarts Lake, causing water temperatures to rise both in the lake and the larger Hogwarts Oceans. Despite the student immediately receiving a detention and relentless efforts to extinguish the fires, the warmer waters were able to spawn an unexpected series of strong hurricane-equivalent or stronger cyclones, especially from April to June. Moreover, storms such as Hypercanes Draco, Kingsley, and Neville went on to cause unprecedented damage to the shores of the Hogwarts Oceans, including the Hogwarts Castle itself. Consequently, a massive permanent Patronus was activated in summer 2012 around the oceans to not only defend the area against future cyclones, but also against other dangerous creatures, such as Dementors. Additionally, the United Kingdom Met Office assumed responsibility for the Hogwarts region the following year.

Neville was the strongest cyclone recorded in millenia in the Hogwarts Oceans, and it would never be matched again. Over 70,000 people, both magical and Muggle, and losses cascading over $3 trillion (2012 USD) were reported from the super hypercane. Due to the longevity of Neville and Hypercane Kingsley, activity fortunately slowed down extremely rapidly in the Hogwarts Oceans afterwards.
