The 2010 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 21 tropical depressions, 19 tropical storms, 12 hurricanes, and 5 major hurricanes. This total ties with 1887, 1995, 2011 and 2012 as the 3rd most active Atlantic hurricane season on record. In addition to this, the names Igor and Tomas were retired after the season, and replaced with Ian and Tobias for the 2016 season.
