For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of mexico:

Two tropical cyclones, tropical storms Colin and Danielle, formed
in the Atlantic Basin in June.  A third Tropical Storm, Bonnie,
formed and dissipated at the end of may, but after regeneration, it
attained tropical storm status for a second time in early June.
Based on a 30-year (1981-2010) climatology, a named storm forms in
the basin in June about every other year, with a hurricane forming
once every seven or eight years.

The 2016 Atlantic hurricane season had an early start with the rare
January formation of Hurricane Alex.  In addition, Colin and
Danielle were the earliest third and fourth named storms,
respectively, to form in a season.  In terms of the accumulated
cyclone energy (ace), which measures the combined strength and
duration of tropical storms and hurricanes, activity in the Atlantic
Basin so far in 2016 is above normal.

Reports on individual cyclones, when completed, are available at the
National Hurricane Center website at
www.NHC.NOAA.Gov/data/tcr/index.Php?Season=2016&basin=atl .
