The 1999 Atlantic hurricane season was an above average event in the yearly formation of tropical cyclones in the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. This page will document my opinion on intensities during the season after seeing the information needed to form this opinion. This may include Dvorak numbers, Tropical Cyclone Advisories and reports, and any observations made during the tropical cyclone personally if it made landfall. Based on this summary, there were 16 tropical depressions, 12 tropical storms, 8 hurricanes, and 5 major hurricanes. Following the season, the names Floyd and Lenny were retired, and were replaced with Franklin and Lee for the 2005 season.
