TD20 is looking to eventually swing north and follow the pattern right now if fish storms coming off of Africa. That track pattern is a lucky break for the U.S.
yeah, keep pumping up that southeastern ridge this winter... ::yum::
Come on severe wx season...

We will be using Greek Names by the end of this month.
Well, today we're up to Vicky, so Wilfred will be the last name in the book. With another complex already coming off the African coast I doubt it will take the rest of the month to hit the Greek names.

I noticed there was no "U" named storm- apparently because U names aren't very common. Same with X, Y, and Z.

I can think of a few U names-

Ulysses
Uriah
Uzziah
Ursula
Uhura... c'mon NHC, be creative!

I have a question that may need to be answered after 2020.

Do Greek names get retired?

If Hurricane Epislon runs up the East Coast and causes a lot of damage because it is 2020 does it get retired and if it does a Roman or Arabic name get used in its place?

We've got a system in the southern Gulf showing a 60% chance of development in 5 days and another off the coast of Africa showing a 50% in 2 days and 70% in 5 days. If both develop that will give us Alpha by the end of the weekend. And we've still got 4 active, named storms on the map, down from yesterday's 5. It's hard to believe what we're seeing with storm formation right now.

The system in the southern Gulf is now at 90% chance of development inside of 48 hours, with NHC expecting a north or northeast track by the weekend. This one may be worth watching considering the rapid development we've seen over the Gulf with recent storms.

Also, Teddy is now a hurricane and expected to reach major hurricane status tomorrow. It looks to stay a fish storm. We've been incredibly lucky that so many of these have just taken that right hand turn into the Atlantic and not made their way towards the U.S. As active and destructive as this season has been we really could have had it much worse.

With Wilfred being named in the far east ATL this morning....TD 22 will now begin the Greek alphabet once it is classified as a TS. Possible TX threat though the track/intensity is highly uncertain.

National Hurricane Center
NHC will initiate advisories on Subtropical Storm Alpha, located near the coast of Portugal, at 1230 PM AST (1630 UTC).

Well nevermind then. I guess it will be Beta for Texas!
