The 2002 Atlantic hurricane season is summarized. Although the season's total of 12 named storms was above normal, many of these were weak and short-lived. Eight of the named cyclones made landfall in the United States, including Lili, the first hurricane to hit the United States in nearly 3 yr.

This quasi-steady intensity is interpreted as the maximum possible intensity (MPI) of the model. Within the literature, numerical demonstrations have confirmed...
