MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- Today is the FINAL day of the 2014 Hurricane Atlantic Season.

A new non-tropical disturbance associated with a frontal boundary just northeast of the Leeward islands has a 20% chance of developing into a depression within the next 5 days as it drifts to the north. This low chance is due to the same patterns we've been seeing all this past year with unfavorable upper level conditions keeping these storms mainly at bay. 

Yes, subtropical and tropical systems can develop outside the June-November threshold, but they are much rarer. Hence, why the season ends on the last day of November.  It has been a relatively quiet season and it will end that way.
