The record 2020 Atlantic hurricane season has just run out of storm names. A storm developing in the eastern Atlantic on September 18th has just been named Wilfred, the last name on the WMO list. Any other storm that forms this year will be given the letter of the Greek alphabet. < / P > < p > 2020-09-19 the practice of naming storms has existed since the 1950s. As a way to help officials share important information with the public, they believe that names are easier to remember than numbers. When a tropical depression reaches a sustained wind speed of 39 miles per hour and becomes a tropical storm, it gets a name from the 21 alphabets that rotate every six years. < / P > < p > some names will not be reused. If the storm is destructive enough, its name will be cancelled and replaced. In that terrible season of 2005, Katrina, Rita and Wilma were all powerful enough to retire their names forever. Fortunately, no name has been retired this year. On Monday, another record was broken: the largest number of tropical cyclones in the Atlantic basin at the same time. The National Hurricane Center of the United States issued early warning for five different tropical cyclones over the Atlantic basin on the same day. This had happened only once before in September 1971. It is also the sixth year in a row that a storm has been named before the Atlantic hurricane season officially begins on June 1. Tropical storm Arthur took shape on May 16. Over the past 40 years, as climate change has warmed oceans, so have hurricanes powered by heat. < p > < p > Wilfred is the 21st named storm of the season, lasting until November 30. In an average hurricane season, only a dozen storms are strong enough to be named. NOAA’s climate prediction center predicted a busy season at the beginning of June, then increased its forecast of named storms from 19 to 25 in early August. If their revised forecast holds up, it means we should see a Delta Storm by the end of November. The release and download schedule of Microsoft Flight Simulation varies from region to region
