The 1992 Atlantic hurricane season was one of the least active seasons on record. The season officially began on June 1, 1992, and lasted until November 30, 1992. The first storm, an unnamed subtropical storm, developed in the central Atlantic on April 21, over a month before the official start of hurricane season. The most significant storm of the season was Hurricane Andrew, which at the time was the costliest United States hurricane. After crossing the Bahamas, the hurricane made landfall in Florida and Louisiana. It caused $27.3 billion (1992 USD) in damage, mostly in Florida, and 65 fatalities. Andrew was also the strongest hurricane of the season, reaching winds of 175 mph (280 km/h) while approaching Florida.
The decaying 1991–1992 El Niño event likely contributed to this level of activity. That same El Niño influenced a very active Pacific hurricane season.
The following names were used for named storms that formed in the north Atlantic in 1992. Subtropical storms were unnamed until 2002, as a result, the subtropical cyclone in April 1992 did not receive a name. The names not retired from this list appeared again on the naming list for the 1998 season. This is the same list used for the 1986 season. Names that were not assigned are marked in gray.
