MIAMI -- Today marks the official end of the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season.
This season saw a total of 13 named storms, two of them hurricanes.
Forecasters had predicted a busy year, but 2013 saw the fewest hurricanes in a single year since 1982.
Just one storm -- Tropical Storm Andrea -- made landfall in the United States.
Experts say drier-than-expected air and persistent conditions in the atmosphere over the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea and tropical Atlantic Ocean led to the weaker season.
