It's peak hurricane season, and that's clear when you look at the Atlantic Ocean, which has five active tropical cyclones at the same time for only the second time in history.

(CNN)It's peak hurricane season, and that's clear when you look at the Atlantic Ocean, which has five active tropical cyclones at the same time for only the second time in history.

The only other time there were five active tropical cyclones -- hurricane, tropical storm and/or tropical depression -- in the Atlantic was in 1971.

The five systems are Hurricane Paulette, Hurricane Sally, Tropical Storm Teddy, Tropical Storm Vicky, and Tropical Depression Rene.

While Paulette is currently moving away from Bermuda, hurricane conditions are still impacting the island.

The Atlantic Hurricane Season typically averages three major hurricanes in total.

Tropical Depression Rene, which had once been a tropical storm this past weekend, will continue to weaken as it tracks through the central Atlantic Ocean.

This storm is not expected to impact any land and is also forecast to dissipate within the next two days.

The NHC is calling for "life-threatening storms surge and flash flooding. " The highest storm surge is expected to be just to the east of where Sally makes landfall.

Right now the NHC is forecasting 7 to 11 feet of storm surge from the mouth of the Mississippi River east to Ocean Springs, Mississippi, including Lake Borgne.

Tropical Storm Teddy is currently in the central Atlantic, well over 1,000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

Teddy is expected to strengthen to a hurricane over the next few days.

If this occurs, Teddy will be the eighth hurricane of this year's Atlantic Hurricane Season, behind Sally.

By the end of the week Teddy is forecast to become a major hurricane (Category 3 or higher) as it approaches Bermuda.

Tropical Storm Vicky is currently over the eastern Atlantic, just a few hundred miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands.
