We are planning our trip next year for AL, MS LA and TX. This would be for June/July along the coast. I do believe those months are during the hurricane season. Has anyone had any issues going during that time? I know I can always watch the weather and plan accordingly. Just wondering if I am thinking too much into it or not.
Thanks!

Thinking too much. If we all based our trips on what MIGHT happen we'd never go anywhere. Just went to AK knowing there were wildfire issues. Just have a Plan B and remember even if you get there and there are no issues they can crop up at any time.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

It is during Hurricane season but that season doesn't usually peak until late August and September. The chance of getting caught unexpectedly in a tropic storm are minimal. Most of the time the weather guessers will give you plenty of warning before one hits, tho there are rare storms that form just off the coast. And we are in what seems to be a Hurricane Minimal period of history. Not one storm has affected the US this year. And this isn't the only recent year like that.

No numbers to back me up, but as a long time Hurricane watcher, I say that Texas, Mexico and Louisiana will see most of the early season storms and those storms tend to be what we call 'rain events'. Minimal wind and lots of rain that form in the Gulf.

Every part of the country has some sort of natural events that plague it. Do you avoid California because they have earthquakes and fires?

Earliest strong hurricane that I can remember to hit that area was Allen on August 1 in the early 80s. And that was south TX. June really isn't hurricane season and same for most of July.
Go and Enjoy. But always watch the weather regardless of where and when you are.

The only thing I’d be concerned with in hurricane season would be keeping a little closer eye on fuel levels if there is anything forming over the ocean. With a full tank you’ll miss the rush and can get on the road when you need to. You already have the head start of not needing to board up a house and not needing to drive someplace that has a room for you.

You're thinking too much.

You'll very likely be fine in June and July. Just hot.

The last time I was caught in a hurricane was on Nantucket Island off the coast of MA. You never know where they are going to hit, so just keep an eye on the weather, and be prepared to move if necessary.

The one good thing about hurricanes is you know when they are coming and you have plenty of time to get the heck out of dodge

Hurricane's won't be a problem, usually, then, but you will run into some very hot humid weather.
