Atlantic hurricane seasons
1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994,

The 1992 Atlantic hurricane season was a below-average Atlantic hurricane season, producing 8 named storms, 5 hurricanes, and 1 major hurricane. The season officially began on June 1, 1991, and ended on November 30, 1991. These dates historically describe the period each year when most tropical cyclones form in the Atlantic basin and are adopted by convention. However, tropical cyclogenesis is possible at any time of the year, as demonstrated by the formation of Subtropical Storm Andrew on April 21.

Retirement[edit]

In the spring of 1993, at the 15th session of the RA IV hurricane committee, the World Meteorological Organization retired the name Bonnie from its rotating name lists due to the amount of damage and deaths it caused, and it will not be used again for another Atlantic hurricane. It was replaced with Betty for the 1998 season.
