The 2026 Atlantic hurricane season was an extremely active season, with 25 reported storms. 12 of these storms reached hurricane status and 9 became major hurricanes. No hypercanes were reported. The season's first storm, Tropical Storm Alberto developed in the Gulf of Mexico at approximately 0100 UTC on June 2 and became a storm just 3 hours later. It survived for 4 days and became shredded by wind shear. Hurricane Valerie was the season's last major hurricane. Hurricane Valerie formed on December 16 and became a Category 5 due to rapid intensification. The storm survived for about 10 days and became extratropical. Its remnants made landfall on the UK with 75 mph (120 km/h) winds and heavy rain. Due to Valerie, the season ended in early January 2027.

Storms

Tropical Storm Alberto

On June 2, a low pressure system developed in the Gulf of Mexico. The next day, the storm developed convection inside it, causing it to transition to the first depression of the season. Just 3 hours later, the storm developed a weak eyewall over 25 miles (38 km) wide and became a tropical storm. At 0400 UTC, the storm was clearly recognized by weather satellites. The storm survived for the next 3 days and then was battered by strong wind shear.
