Earliest and latest hurricanes

Cranked out some interesting stats to see where we stand. I haven't quality-checked the results, so take it with a grain of salt. If Emily (5th in the sequence) attains hurricane status before July 18, that would set a record.

Notes
* Sequence number is the tropical storm sequence number for that year (tropical storm or hurricane); an unnamed storm (such as in Danny/1997 when a subtropical storm took the first slot) may keep names from going alphabetically
* Avg is the mean date at which a storm in the sequence number hit hurricane status
* The dates shown are the date at which the storm hit hurricane status
* Statistics for a sequence number are only calculated for years that have had a qualifying storm, so this will produce nonlinear date results
* The results will differ from the NHC page since they count 1st hurricane, 2nd hurricane, 3rd hurricane, etc for a year
