The 2019 Atlantic hurricane season was a below-average season and the first season since 2009 to feature no tropical cyclones in the month of July. The season officially began on June 1, 2019, and ended on November 30, 2019. Activity throughout the season was limited due to an ongoing El Niño event, which in turn increased activity in the eastern Pacific.

The season's strongest storm was Hurricane Erin, which reached Category 4 status on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale while over the open Atlantic Ocean. No tropical cyclones had significant effects on land in the 2019 season, with the only landfalling storms being Andrea, Barry, and Dorian.
